El-Rufai

It was high drama at the Kaduna state House of Assembly on Thursday, when members  has rejected the nomination of Aliyu Abubakar as commissioner for agriculture in the yet to be constituted cabinet of Governor Nasir El-Rufai.

A stunned Abubakar was left in the lutch when the members decided to make fun of him after other nominees were cleared, as the Speaker, Aminu Shagali, kept asking him why he now settle to serve in a government that he attacks its policies.

In what has also been interpreted in certain quarters as a set up to humiliate him with the knowledge of the governor, apparently up to have his pound of flesh from his constant lacerating criticisms, Abubakar was not even allowed to offer any defence.

In the monologue to ensued after the other nominees were cleared, the Speaker, intoned: “You criticized the same administration that is about to employ you now in one of your posts on Facebook. You said there’s nothing good about the education policy and attacked the governor,” he said.

”The governor still chose you based on your merits, your CV was chosen among about 10 CVs presented to the governor, do you think it’s honourable to accept this nomination? To work for an administration whom you think is a bad one? “In your Facebook account, you said there is nothing like making Kaduna state great again, it is a deceptive cliche used by politicians to deceive the masses, we will make Kaduna great at appropriate time,” the speaker said.

“You said it is a responsibility for those who are truly sincere not for those who are inherently sarcastic. You also said el-Rufai must learn to tackle issues with human face. You said you are an advocate of change that goes to the root and cause (of a problem) not only the symptoms.

“You also said in the same post: stop comparing me with el-Rufai who thinks he is more intelligent than intelligence itself. You however said you are a humble human being that believes that all that glitters is not gold there is nothing authoritarian in insisting on the truth and never speak truth.

“You also said that you detest insincerity as there are better ways of genuinely solving problems.”

Abubakar was dumbfounded when confronted with the questions. He was not given time to defend himself.

In an interview with journalists shortly after the plenary session, chairman house committee on media and public affairs, Tanimu Musa, said the Abubakar’s nomination was rejected because he criticised the el-Rufai administration.

“The evil that men do lives even after them, Jaafaru has been a critic of this administration on social media
”The nominee has been criticising the government, so why did he want to work with the government you have been criticising before” Musa said.
