The Speaker said “In your (nominee) Facebook account, you said ‘there is nothing like making Kaduna State great again and that it is a deceptive cliche used by politicians to deceive the masses’ and ‘We will make Kaduna great at the appropriate time. It is a responsibility for those who are truly sincere not for those who are inherently sarcastic.’

Meanwhile, the House Committee Chairman on Media and Public Affairs, Alhaji Tanimu Musa, told journalists shortly after plenary that el-Rufai’s nominee was rejected following his criticism of the current All Progressives Congress administration in the state.

“Jaafaru has been a critic of this administration on social media. Why did he want to work with the governor?”
