The Speaker of Kaduna House of Assembly, Yusuf Zailani on Sunday cleared the air on a plan to impeach the state Governor, Nasir El-Rufai.
According to Zailani, the alleged impeach move is the handiwork of the opposition and people who are not pleased with their relationship of El-Rufai with the lawmakers.
An alleged plan to impeach El-Rufai had trended on Sunday.
He further stated that the opposition plans to deny the people of dividends of democracy.
The speaker in a statement released through his Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Ibrahim Dahiru Danfulani called on the public to disregard the report.
The statement reads, “The Attention of the Speaker of Kaduna State House of Assembly has been drawn to report of purported impeachment moves against Gov. Nasir El-Rufai over corruption allegations circulating on social platforms.
“This is simply the handiwork of opposition and enemies of progress of the relationship between the legislative arm of government and the executive under the able leadership of Malam Nasir el-Rufai, apparently to create crises between the legislative and the executive and to deny the good people of Kaduna State the dividends of democracy they are benefitting courtesy of the good working relationship between the executive and the legislative.
“The report which also said the relationship between the governor and the Speaker of the Kaduna State House of Assembly, Honourable Yusuf Zailani, has been frosty for quite some time now is also nothing but the figment of the imagination of the writer and perhaps their sponsors.
“I, therefore, wish to state categorically that the entire report is maliciously concorted to misinform the general public and should be disregarded in its entirety.”
