A group, Coalition of Candidates, State and Federal Republic of Nigeria, Kaduna State Chapter (CCSFRN) has appealed to all political parties and candidates that participated in the 2019 elections to support the administration of Governor Nasir el-Rufai in ensuring that all citizens of the state benefit from bountiful dividends of democracy.
The appeal was contained in a five-point communiqué issued at the end of its meeting at the Asaa Pyramid Hotel, Kaduna on Monday night, March 18, 2019.
“We are calling on all political parties and their candidates to support the current administration in order to succeed for the betterment of the people of Kaduna State and the nation as a whole,” it appealed.
The coalition which cuts across several political parties said that it is always ready to contribute its quota to the present administration whenever the need arises for it to achieve its set goals.
According to the communique, jointly signed by Kaduna CCSFRN Coordinator, Honourable Sani Abdulkadir (Dakaci) and its secretary, Honourable Abdullahi Musa Rigasa, the group said it was happy to have fulfilled its pre election promise to Malam Nasir el-Rufai.
“One of the major assignments for endorsing His Excellency was to give him our votes, which we did. We promised him 500,000 votes and we did all we could to make it fulfill our promise,” the group said.
According to the communique, they further said that several strategies were adopted in winning votes for el-Rufai.
“We used a lot of strategies by convincing our people across the state to make sure we fulfill our promise. Especially in Igabi, Zaria, Kaduna North, Kaduna South, Sabon Gari, etc,” they added.
They prayed to god to grant the governor wisdom in piloting the affairs of the state.
“After the successful conduct of the election and Almighty Allah has fulfilled our wishes by making our governor successful, we are also praying to Allah to give him more wisdom, strength and guidance in all his endeavours,” they prayed.
The group therefore, called on all citizens of the state to key into the developmental programmes of Malam el-Rufai to further move the state forward.
