Our attention has been drawn to a press statement purportedly written some jobless youths parading themselves at Southern Kaduna APC Youth Stakeholders.
While we don’t have the right to question their God given inalienable right to expression, we are saddened that these crop of youths have been silent in the midst of the gross injustice and insensitivity that has become the hallmark of El-Rufai led administration.
We want to delete the notion they expressed that we regretted voting for APC as a party. We are very much Comfortable with the way and manner Buhari/Osibanjo are managing the affairs of this nation. Our major grouse is with El-Rufai and his bandwagon that have deviated from our party manifesto. Corruption and bastardization of the public service is the major character of the misfit holding our state to ransom today.
We equally wish to challenge this purported stakeholders to tell their beloved governor to open our schools since he has done much to secure the people of Southern than any one else. This is the first time in history that schools would be under lock and key for almost a year due to governments inability to secure her citizens. If award is given to state with the most prevalent case of kidnapping, Kaduna State won’t have rival. Kidnapping is a major occupation in Kaduna State under the watch of El-Rufai.
As for the issue of job creation, we wonder where these supposed stakeholders were when recent reports revealed that Kaduna state isn’t part of the few states that have attracted investors in recent years. Besides, if what they mentioned is true, why are they still roaming the street and offices begging for what to eat, since there is abundant in the state for them to work and pay their bills? Can somebody tell them to go and find job in functional states and do and stop this their beggary attitude?
We still stand on our plea to the people of Kaduna State, that voting Nasir El-Rufai remains the greatest Democratic mistake that has taken place in the history of our dear state. We have taken the path of correcting such error.
Honourable Victor Asat
Chairman, Concerned Southern Kaduna APC Youths.
