What’ll befall Kaduna State after El-Rufai’s tenure- Abdulmumin Jibrin


Former member of the House of Representatives, Abdulmumin Jibrin, has expressed fear on the fate that may befall Kaduna State after the exit of Nasir El-Rufai as governor.

The Kano State-born Jibrin, who is currently Executive Director in Federal Housing Authority, hinged his fear on the ability and political will of El-Rufai’s successor to sustain the developmental momentum that now holds sway in the state.

He made this known in a post on his verified Twitter handle on Thursday.

He added that the developmental roadmaps put in place by El-Rufai as Director General of Bureau for Public Enterprises (BPE) and as a Minister of Federal Capital Territory (FCT) were neglected.

His tweet: “History will be kind to @elrufai Great work he has done in Kaduna and all previous. My fear is continuity once he leaves. He must have learnt from the past. We have seen BPE and FCT,It hurts..The best FCT minister ever! I can say that bcos my family living here for over 3 decades,” the All Progressives Congress (APC) chieftain, who represented Kiru/Bebeji Federal Constituency of Kano State between 2015 and 2019,” said.

President Muhammadu Buhari had last month commissioned several projects in Kaduna, where he expressed delight over El-Rufai’s performance despite scarce resources.

The popularity of the governor is, however, said to be dented by regular attacks in the state by terrorists who often kidnap residents for ransom.
