A group of elders in Kaduna, the Kaduna Development Elders Initiative, advises Governor Nasir El-Rufai to change his style of administration.
The group said that measures and policies he took were unpopular and not in the interest of people in the state.
The elders, arising from an executive meeting in Kaduna, said they resolved to continue advising El-Rufai for the state to experience physical and human development.
The elders, in the communique signed by their publicity secretary, Alhassan Balarabe Musa, said El-Rufai’s promise of making Kaduna great again did not seem to reflect the reality.
Kaduna “is now sinking into a quagmire of neglect and inaction,” the communique said.
“The people of Kaduna State deserve better than what is being given to them now and the sooner the governor realizes that the better. He should, therefore, change his gear now.”
The communique alleged that civil servants and pensioners have been in agony due to what it called “endless verifications exercise,” resulting in the withholding of salaries for many months.
