Ishaq Hadejia, a chieftain of All Progressives People Congress (APC) in Jigawa state, has asked the minister of water resources, Suleiman Adamu to resign his appointment as minister with immediate effect.
Hadejia stated this when speaking to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Dutse on Monday, October 22. He alleged that Adamu has not been coming for political meetings or activities in the state because he said that he is not a politician.
“If that is the reason for the minister, he should better resign it is because of politics he was given the appointment. ”
“It is really unfortunate that if something happened in the state, whether good or bad, you will never see the minister coming to rejoice or sympathise with the people.”
“The recent flood which submerged over 500 communities in the state, with 40 deaths including lost of foodstuff, properties, farmlands, live stocks, the minister did not even bother to come and sypathise with the people.”
Hadejia stated that Jigawa is an agrarian state full of potentials, as minister for water resources he didn’t care to collaborate with the ministry for agriculture to harness the potentials in it.
Meanwhile, about 300 aspirants who had contested on the platform of the APC in Kano state have dumped the party. The aspirants said their decision was due to “gross injustice” allegedly meted out to them during the recent primary elections.
The spokesman of the aggrieved aspirants, Sen Isah Zarewa disclosed this while briefing newsmen shortly after a meeting of the aggrieved aspirants at his residence in Kano on Monday, October 22.
He noted that the spate of internal wrangling in the party in the wake of the disputed primaries would not have arisen, if all the contestants in the state were fully convinced that there was no foul play or any gimmick.
