The Convener of Coalition of Civil Society Organizations in Kaduna State in person of Comrade Zubairu Mukhtar and Co- Convened by Comrade Richard Austine expressed their dissatisfaction over the buying of a honorary Doctorate Degree from an unaccredited university in Coutonu which has no benefit to the Local Government nor the good people they represent.
They added that it is a great disservice to our Nation and the people of Kaduna State and a disregard to the instructions of President Mohammadu Buhari whom on the occation of the approval of local government autonomy emphatically stated that the Local government funds are to be put to judicious use so that the dividends of democracy can reach the grass root .
Comrade Mukhtar said that they stood firm in support of Governor El-Rufa’i from inception till date because of his visionary plans and people oriented policies he puts forward. They should emulate him by enrolling into an International or Famous Indigenous Universities and obtain an academic doctorate degree.
They should be worried about developmental projects and not enrolling in luxurious events like buying such frivolous certificates that holds no value, a certificate which a NECO results more value than.
They gave the names of the council chairmen as Hon Yakubu Jarimee of Kaduna South, Hon Bawa Jaja of Kudan, Hon Sadiq Ibrahim Salihu of Ikara Local Government and Hon Abubakar Shehu Giwa of Giwa Local Government.
it is very unfortunate that the fight against waste of government resources in Kaduna State is being sabotaged.
It has become imperative for us as patriotic citizens to draw the attention of the Executive Governor of Kaduna State Mal. Nasir Ahmed El-Rufa’i, an upright and incorruptible leader who is also a front runner in the fight against corruption to beam his search light into the accounts of Local Governments alongside other authorities who have constitutional rights such as the Ministry of Local Government, The House Committee on Local Government and Auditor General Local Government of Kaduna State.
We would remain committed to support the fight against corruption and urge our young people to always be patriotic and do the right thing he finalised.
