The Kaduna state house of assembly has rejected the nomination of Aliyu Abubakar as commissioner for agriculture.
While other nominees were cleared, Aminu Shagali, the speaker, asked the nominee why he wanted to serve in a government that he attacks its policies.
Abubakar had reportedly criticised some policies of el-Rufai.
He said,”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,”
”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?”
The speaker said since 2017, Abubakar has been criticising the education policy of the governor, which according to Shagali, is one of the best.
“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.
