Less than 24 hours when the National Assembly succumbed to governors and jettisoned the local government autonomy, the gubernatorial candidate of All Progressives Congress (APC), Senator Uba Sani, has said that Kaduna State Government is about the only subnational that does not interfere with the running of local governments.
Sani said that the autonomy that council chairmen enjoy explains why they are able to execute several projects in Kaduna state.
The lawmaker praised the chairman of the Kubau local government, Alhaji Suleiman Zuntu, for delivering dividends of democracy to his people.
Responding to the request for more dams to boost dry seasoning farming, he promised to not only construct dams but to help farmers with farming inputs like fertilisers and improved seedlings.
According to the Senator, he met with farmers from Pambegua last week and deliberated extensively on how to improve agriculture.
Senator Uba Sani noted that all the contributions of the people at the Town Hall meeting were commendation, adding that this shows that Governor Nasir El Rufai’s administration has largely delivered on its mandate.
The gubernatorial candidate pledged to continue with the policies of the present government because “I am still a student of El Rufai School of Government.”
“I have been in this school for over 20 years. And in this school, there’s no graduation date,” he added.
The governorship candidate also promised to be fair to all “just like my leader, Malam Nasir El Rufai.”
“He supported the late General Shehu Musa Yar’adua. He gave Atiku Abubakar a platform when he was chased out of PDP. He gave Nuhu Ribadu the platform to contest for the presidency. He supported Buhari to become president. Now, it’s the time for us in the north to support him,” he argued.
