APC Restoration group are bunch of frustrated and lazy alien politicians - El-Rufai

Kaduna State Governor Malam Nasir el-Rufai Saturday responded to the
open letter written to him by some aggrieved members of the All
Progressives Congress (APC), in the state under the auspices of Kaduna
Restoration Group describing them as frustrated and lazy politicians.

The governor in the response letter by his media aide, Samuel Aruwan,
also stated that the politicians are not originally from Kaduna State
and wonder why they are accusing the governor of appointing people who
are not from the state into his cabinet. The restoration group had
written an open letter to the Governor last month describing his
policies as dictatorial and suggested ways for him to amend his ways.

Responding, el-Rufai said, “The open letter of the so-called Kaduna
Restoration Group is an epistle of elite frustration, lengthy on lame
lamentations but short on substance and facts. It is like a union of
the disaffected, the discontented and the disappointed telling a
government that all it needs do to be good is to settle them or go
back to the old days of sharing state resources to the few
professional politicians too lazy to work for a living like other
hardworking citizens.

According to the governor, “The doors of this government have never
been shut to anyone. But this government believes that constructive
criticisms and frank exchanges that are rooted in facts are helpful to
improving public policy and governance.

On the allegation that the state government has been holding the party
by the Jugular, the governor said ” the signatories to this letter
either know better than they are letting on or think the APC is like
their old party, the PDP, where governors control everything called
the party! The APC constitution requires deputies to act in place of
the substantive officers until the positions are properly filled in
special congresses.
