El-Rufai sets up transition committee, replies Gov. Yero

Kaduna State Governor-elect, Nasir El-Rufai​,​ on Wednesday inaugurated the All Progressives Congress transition committee ahead of his May 29, 2015 assumption of office.

The committee ​is​ chaired by Mr. El-Rufai’s Chief of Staff when he was Minister of the Federal Capital Territory from 2003 to 2007, Balarabe Lawal.

Mr. El-Rufai’s spokesperson, Samuel Aruwan, disclosed this in a statement issued in the state.

According to him, the transition committee consists of experienced technocrats, politicians and other professionals.

The governor-elect ​also officially replied incumbent Governor, Ramalan Yero’s congratulatory letter.

Mr. El-Rufai was quoted in his reply to have said “Permit me to most warmly acknowledge your congratulatory message on the occasion of our victory in the gubernatorial election.

“I appreciate the grace of your letter and the kind words it contains. I must also put on record that we welcome the spirit behind your phone call that preceded the letter.

“Given the short window that exists between now and the handover, it is our intention to swiftly focus on matters of transition.

The APC has established its own transition committee, chaired by our own Balarabe Abbas Lawal.”

Governor Yero in his letter to the Governor-elect described Mr. El-Rufai’s victory as overwhelming and symbolizing collective resolve of the citizenry.

Mr. El-Rufai, governorship candidate of the APC defeated incumbent Governor Yero of the PDP on April 11, 2015 in a landslide victory across the state.

  • danladi

    what an incomplete reporting!!! who are the members of the committee?

  • Gimba Andrew

    The names of the members but what matters is what is that they should find out that would be useful to enable the Governor Elect hit the ground running.The first thing our new Oga must know is that he will meet an empty treasury n should know why n how to move on.We are aware of the colosal amounts of billions of naira spent so far on Zaria Water Scheme n yet there is no water.Another issue is what happened with the money late Yakowa left n there is no visible projects on ground n contractors working on Yakuwas abandoned projects have not been paid.Why does the govt take loans to pay civil servants who earn the least as salaries n have not yet fully implemented minimum wage.What happened to Sure P funds? Oga will also like to know why civil servants are disenchanted n the rate of turn over in the civil service is high!
