Daura tells Sani, Hunkuyi to al­low El-Ru­fai work

Daily Trust - - INSIDE POLITICS - From An­drew Agbese, Kaduna

A chief­tain of the APC in Kaduna State, Al­haji Muham­mad Ibrahim Daura, has called on sen­a­tors Shehu Sani and Suleiman Hunkuyi, to stop dis­tract­ing Gov­er­nor Nasir el-Ru­fai from the work he is do­ing for Kaduna State.

Daura, who stated this at a news con­fer­ence in Kaduna, said it was not in the in­ter­est of the state for sen­a­tors elected on the same plat­form with the gov­er­nor to be fight­ing him openly.

He said if the two sen­a­tors had is­sues they dis­agreed with, they ought to have en­gaged the gov­er­nor in a mean­ing­ful di­a­logue as mem­bers of the same party.

He said, “We are hav­ing an op­po­si­tion; he (el-Ru­fai) is the gov­er­nor of the state elected on the party’s plat­form. I don't see any rea­son why these peo­ple are fight­ing him.

“If they have any­thing against the gov­er­nor, they should meet him in­stead of fight­ing him on the street. This open fight­ing is not in the in­ter­est of the state. My ad­vice to them, es­pe­cially the two sen­a­tors, is to con­cen­trate on the work they were man­dated to do and al­low the gov­er­nor to do his work,” he said.

The APC chief­tain said it was not true that the gov­er­nor did not lis­ten to ad­vice. “There is no hu­man be­ing that doesn't take ad­vice and Malam that I know lis­tens to ad­vice,” he said.
