Kaduna APC appoints Musa as acting women leader


The Kaduna State chapter of the All Progressives Congress has appointed Naymarie Musa as the state acting APC Women Leader.


Musa, who had served as the party’s Assistant Women Leader, assumed the new role following the suspension of Maryam Sulaiman for defending the El-Rufai administration over the recent controversy over the state’s huge debt.


As contained in a suspension notice dated March 31, signed by the APC Chairman and Secretary of Badarawa/Malali ward, Ali Maishago and Zakkah Bassahuwa, respectively; the party asserted that Sulaiman had been suspended over purported actions that tarnished the governor’s reputation.


While fielding questions from journalists at the party Secretariat on Thursday, Musa promised to operate an inclusive administration that would help solidify the party ahead of any general election.


She expressed her commitment to serving the women in the state with dedication, integrity and passion.


“My duty and commitment is to consolidate on the ‘Sustain Agenda’ of Governor Uba Sani to deliver effective leadership for new development heights.


“My administration would prioritise the women’s interest and run an effective, accountable and participatory administration,” Musa said.


She enjoined women in the state to support the programmes and policies of the Sani-led administration.


Following the debt controversy, the state APC chapter, on Wednesday, expressed its support for the move by the state’s House of Assembly to probe the financial dealings, particularly loans obtained by the El-Rufai administration.


The Kaduna APC Publicity Secretary, Salisu Wusono, speaking with The PUNCH on the telephone on Wednesday, described the probe as a welcome development.


Also, the Kaduna State chapter of the Nigeria Labour Congress has thrown its weight behind the probe.


The Kaduna NLC Chairman, Ayuba Suleiman, in an interview with our correspondent, said the labour union would also want the Assembly to probe the unpaid severance packages of the over 32,000 workers sacked by the administration by El-Rufai.


Suleiman said, “We will prefer if the committee shall consider further the denial of payment of redundancy, severance and pensions allowances as provided by Section 20 of the Labour Act of 2004, for the over 32,000 workers sacked by the previous administration.”
