The Peoples Democratic Party in Kaduna State has criticized the administration of Governor Uba Sani in Kaduna State over the alleged lopsided appointments by the governor.
The party expressed dismay with the development in a statement issued by the State Publicity Secretary of the party, Abraham Alberah Catoh.
According to the PDP, the recent appointments by the governor excluded some sections of the people in the state, as promised by former governor El-Rufai.
“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 PDP alleged.
It further claimed that the list did not show the local government identity of the appointees to conceal the hidden agenda of the government, in a desperate bid to conceal the glaring inequity in the appointments.
The party, however, warned that fairness should be made a prerequisite for unity, peace, and development in the state, stressing that the PDP believes in the principles of equity and justice.
It condemned in totality such divisive antics reminiscent of the Nasir El-rufa’i era and called on the government to withdraw the list, 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 party, however, called on the good people of the state to remain calm, hopeful, and steadfast in their prayers as the party and its governorship candidate pursue their mandate at the tribunal.
The PDP reassured the people of the state of its total commitment to restoring an all-inclusive government and governance once the mandate that was allegedly freely given to it in the March 18, 2023, governorship polls is restored by the courts.
