The ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) Chairman Kaduna State, Honourable Emmanuel Jekada has said that he has neither made nor submitted any list of appointees to the Kaduna State Governor, Malam Nasir el-Rufai for appointment.
He made the refutation in a swift reaction to media reports that he earlier submitted names of three candidates for appointment by el-Rufai but were rejected.
He said the misinformation is the handiwork of mischief makers who do not mean well, uncomfortable about the cordial relationship existing between him and the governor.
The chairman further stated in a phone chat that he has no problem with his Governor, Malam el-Rufai, therefore, has no reason to fall apart with him over any appointments or otherwise as claimed and published on the Social Media.
He said the earlier report that he, a retired Airforce General, Air Commodore Emmanuel Jekada’s days in office with the party are numbered as a result of the impasse,, “was full blown blatant lies by his enemies.”
“It’s a lie that, that I Jekada who hails from Zango Kataf in Southern Kaduna area of the state, is said to have been having grudges with the Governor over political appointees,” he added.
He also said “it was a lie that I presented names of three persons to Governor el-Rufai as lists of his candidates for political appointment, but none was taken.”
