I will Complete Zaria Water Project — El-Rufai

The Kaduna state All Progressives Congress governorship candidate, Nasir El-Rufai, has said he will complete the Zaria Water Project- that has lingered for years- if elected.

This was made known in a statement by the spokesperson of the APC Campaign in the state, Samuel Aruwan.

Mr. El-Rufai who was speaking in Zaria, his home town, during a town hall meeting with youth leaders of Kaduna North Senatorial Zone, added that he will make water available to Zaria town and environs.

“I stand here to tell you nothing but the truth and I will say it for all to know. By the special grace of God we will complete Zaria Water Project that has been going on endlessly. We keep on hearing billions upon billions being spent without an end.

“You asked for my candid position regarding the water project, and I told you that I will complete the project and bring water to our people without any abracadabra. We will not say what we will not do.

“There will be no more story and deceit if God and the good people of Kaduna state give us the mandate to run affairs of our state. We will make it real by the grace of God.”

He also called on the youth to work hard towards a new Kaduna state.

“You own the future, don’t allow anyone to deceive you in the name of religion, ethnicity and political sentiment. Don’t stereotype anyone, don’t denigrate anyone, and don’t get involved in violence and anarchy.”

The second largest city in Kaduna state, Zaria, has been suffering from lack of water for more than 20 years.

Billions of Naira has been spent to revitalize the Zaria Water project but it is yet to be actualized.

    Even water, the PDP has been playing politics with it in such an important town as Zaria for many years. They have made so much money from re-awarding this contract with accompanying huge outlays of fresh mobilisation funds which they take home and share away in PDP fashion in Ghana Must Go bags usually in the middle of the night. I hope it is clear to the people of Zaria and other towns in Kaduna State in which party they should pitch their tents when the opportunity is presented to them soon. We all have a stake in Kaduna State and urge every one in the state to please shun any act of violence during the 2015 elections as to shame outsiders who are waiting with bated breath in anticipation of bloodshed. It is now left to Governor Yero to ensure that peace reigns in the state between now and after the elections. Governor Yero…

      Why can’t you just appreciate this excellent write-up instead of resorting to something of a name calling? I fully associate myself with this, and I believe Buhari has lost it completely. By the way I was once a Buhari supporter
