Mallam Nasir El-rufai the governor-elect of Kaduna State has promised that The All Progressive Congress (APC) will takes seriously its responsibility to build a harmonious society in the State.
El-rufai made this promise after receiving his certificate of return from the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) in Kaduna on Wednesday.
According to him “We are committed to fostering a secure, peaceful environment that gives the confidence to all the residents of the state to make the most of their talents. We will uphold the rule of law and the equality of concern for all citizens.”
“We intend to work with all communities in Kaduna state without fear or favor. We are all equal partners and stakeholders in this state. There will be no discrimination in Kaduna State on the basis of gender, ethnicity or religion.” He said.
The governor-elect emphasised that appointments and nominations into his cabinet and government will be primarily on the basis of integrity and determined strictly by competence, capacity and capability.
El-rufai pledged to do all that is humanly possible to move the state forward as soon as he is sworn into office and constitute a state executive council. Adding ” we shall begin work to meet your expectations of positive change.”
He asserts that his government shall be a listening one, saying “We shall be a listening government, and we shall be decisive in implementing our agreed agenda for change. We shall lose no time in reforming education and healthcare, local government, the public service and leading the processes that will create jobs and economic opportunities for our people.”
El-rufai thank the people of Kaduna, his party and security agencies for their sterling performance during the elections and investing in them their hopes for the future. Adding “You voted massively to elect General Muhammadu Buhari as president of Nigeria, and you saw fit to send two APC senators and 11 representatives to the National Assembly. On Saturday, you completed the job by electing an APC governor and a more than two-thirds majority of state House of Assembly members. We thank you for this vote of confidence, and we promise to be responsible custodians of your mandate.”
