OrderPaperToday – Senator Danjuma La’ah from Kaduna State has accused his governor, Nasir El-Rufai of being behind the killings in parts of the state.
Over the past few days, some communities in the State have been engulfed in mayhem necessitating a 24-hour curfew to be imposed even as the Police say at least 55 people were killed.
Sen. La’ah while responding to a motion raised by Senator Suleiman Hukunyi also from Kaduna State on Tuesday, declared that El-Rufai has no regard for the lives lost in the state and queried him for leaving the state without handing over to his deputy.
The Kaduna South Senator pointedly said: “All these happenings in Kaduna state is caused by the Governor of Kaduna state because he is not putting all the necessary measures in place. The responsibility he leaves them all. It is not compulsory to vote somebody I can vote somebody if I want and he is not working, he should leave there.”
He wondered why the Governor keeps requesting money from the federal government.
“Is he the only governor who has damages. He is looking for the money that he would be giving out. If you don’t have time for the human begins. We cannot allow that to remain.”
He said further: “There should be reasons why people can be killed anyhow like cows. If politics is happening in Zamfara and Kaduna. If all those that are from Zamfara are all Muslims and those from Southern Kaduna are all Christians, is it a must that people will die?
“People are not supposed to die. Life is given by God and no one is supposed to taken by a human being. In the first place, I noticed that the governor is out of town. Was he supposed to leave without passing responsibility to the deputy? What for? We are all human beings. You should look at people like they don’t know what they are doing. We are all human beings, I don’t differentiate, nobody should take one should special than the other. I want things to be done in the rightful way.”
He warned that the ongoing crisis in the state can happen to anyone and not just in Kaduna state.
He said: “This crisis at any given time can happen to anybody. We are fighting this cause today to prevent the unforeseen.
“Don’t look at the Kaduna issue as a problem alone. It can affect anybody. I am telling brothers and sister here that these things should not be dealt with lightly. They cannot pretend like they don’t know how is doing it.”
