The Senator representing Kaduna North, Suleiman Hunkuyi, Friday, accused Governor Nasir El-Rufai of Kaduna State of financial indiscipline over the management of the state’s resources.

He also declared that the rejection of approval for the $350m foreign loan requested by the Kaduna State government early in the year by the Senate was in the best interest of the people of the State.

Hunkuyi, who stated this while fielding questions from journalists in Angwa Wakili in Zango Kataf Local Government Area of Kaduna State, said if the loan had been approved by the Senate, it would have been misused by the profligate government of the State.

He affirmed that the state was already indebted to different categories of creditors, including serving and retired public servants in the state.

According to him, one of the hundreds of billions of debts suffocating the state government under El- Rufai was the N34bn owed pensioners alone in terns of their unpaid entitlements like gratuities and monthly pension payment.

“I have no regret whatsoever as a senator from Kaduna state for kicking against the $350m foreign loan request of the state government because the intendment of the request was not for the interest of the people or the state.

“The three senators from the state and the Senate, after critically looking into the said loan, saw that there was no need for it and that is aside the fact that there was no iota of sincerity of purpose in the loan request by the governor”, he said.

Hunkuyi, who was hosted in the town by stakeholders of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) across the entire 11 local government areas in Kaduna South, added that “the time is up for Governor Nasir El-Rufai to be voted out of office over poor performance in office.

“Within the last three and half years, El-Rufai has been in office, billions and billions of monies in terms of monthly allocations, bail outs from the federal government, remittance from Paris club etc, have been received by him with little or nothing to show for them.

“Most of the roads within the state are bad, State owned hospitals not functional and well equipped, morale of civil servants very low and so on and so forth”, he added.

Earlier, while addressing the PDP stakeholders from Southern Kaduna as one of the gubernatorial aspirants of the party ahead of the party’s primaries coming up this month, he solicited their support , having supported one of their own, the late Gov Patrick Yakowa to win the governorship election of the state in April 2011.

He assured them that if elected, all the 800 district heads across the state relieved of their positions would be reinstated within a week after his swearing in.

This he explained, must be done because government was all about people just as he also promised to review cases of 25, 000 sacked teachers along with their counterparts at the 23 local government areas of the state.
