Kaduna State Governor, Malam Nasir Ahmad El-Rufai has expressed support for the state house of Assembly over rejection of one of the Commissioners he nominated for consideration by the assembly.
The Assembly presided over by its Speaker; Aminu Abdullahi Shagali had on Thursday rejected Alhaji Aliyu Jaafar who was nominated by the Governor to serve as the Commissioner for Agriculture.
Hon. Shagali said, Jaafar was rejected for his consistent criticism of Governor El-Rufai’s administration.
Meanwhile, the Governor in reaction to development on Friday while swearing-in the rest of the nominees who were confirmed by the assembly, said, he is in support of the assembly’s decision.
He however said, he will be making another nomination for the position very soon.
According to the Governor, “We thank the Kaduna State House of Assembly for prompt confirmation and scrutinizing our Commissioners. We note that the house was unable to confirm one of our nominees, and we will shortly be proposing a replacement.
“I think they did the right thing, because it is their job to check whatever we are doing. No one is perfect; we can never always get it right. That is why our partnership with the state house of assembly is a healthy one. And we support every decision they take,” El-Rufai said
