Kaduna: PDP decries lopsided appointments


The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Kaduna State, has expressed dismay with the lopsidedness of appointments by Governor Uba Sani, since assuming office.

The State Publicity Secretary of the party, Abraham Alberah Catoh, in a statement on Wednesday evening said, “In particular, the recent publication of the list of fourteen commissioners-designate, in which certain sections are either shortchanged or completely not represented smacks of mischief as well as confirms the unfortunate claims of the immediate past governor of the state, Mal. Nasir Elrufa’i, of a grand plan to shortchange and or exclude a certain section of the people from the governance structure of the state.”

The party further lamented that the local governments of origin of the nominees were shrouded in secrecy in a desperate bid to conceal the glaring inequity in the appointments.

The party said fairness should be made as a prerequisite for unity, peace, and development in the state, stressing that the PDP believes in the principle of equity and justice.

The PDP condemned in totality such divisive antics reminiscent of the Nasir El-rufa’i era and called on the government to withdraw the list and make amends and ensure balance in all appointments and projects across the state in line with the federal character as enshrined in the 1999 constitution (as amended).

The PDP also called on the good people of the state to remain calm, hopeful, and steadfast in prayers as the party and its governorship candidate pursue their mandate at the tribunal.

The party reassured the people of the state of its total commitment to restoring an all-inclusive government and governance once the mandate that was freely given to it in the March 18, 2023 governorship polls is restored by the courts.
