A leak to the press of the planned step by step actions that were recently hatched by Gov. Nasir El Rufa’i of the North western State of Kaduna, and his henchmen to remove the Deputy Governor, Arch. Yusuf Barnabas Bala from office has brought discomfort to Lugard House in Kaduna.
The deputy governor of the State, Mr Barnabas ‘Bantex’ Yusuf Bala has unfortunately been bedridden for sometime and El Rufai wants him removed from office.
Panic and palpable tension has overwhelmed the Kaduna State Government and this has reached feverish proportions with political intrigues appearing to be going from bad to worse for the embattled Governor Nasir El Rufa’i and his cabal.
Series of hasty meetings with principal officers of the Kaduna State Government to address matters are currently being held to contain the situation.
The Governor is reported to have in a panic, put a call through to the Deputy Governor to deny the purported removal of the bedridden Deputy Governor from office and asked if the Deputy Governor was comfortable where he is or needed to be transferred to a more comfortable medical facility.
In a similar development, a plot to unleash attacks and ruthlessly deal with some members of the State House of Assembly who are perceived not to be loyal to the State Governor has been uncovered.
Specifically, the duo of Hon Chokali and Hon Chakis have been fingered as no longer trustworthy by the government any more.
The perceived black-ships are said to be members of some sensitive committees that are considered injurious to the Government.
The plot which is unclear yet is planned to be executed while some members of the State House of Assembly are away on a deliberate plan to send them to the United States of America.
Some members of the Kaduna State House of Assembly of the All Progressives Congress, APC extraction are meeting behind visible lines with their PDP counterparts to lament the high handedness of the governor and the rather lukewarm attitude of the Speaker to do the needful.
In two separate meetings held in Kaduna at the residence of one of the aggrieved in Barnawa, Kaduna South and another in Abuja at a hotel, the members have resolved to commence removal action against the Speaker who is said to have been shielding the Governor and then ultimately, the governor himself.
The aggrieved members decided it was appropriate for them to move fast and truncate the purported attempt to remove the Deputy Governor, before it is brought on the floor of the house by the Majority Leader of the Kaduna State House of Assembly.
The scenario seems very confusing as the aggrieved groups are said to be predominantly Christians of the PDP extraction against the Governor and have vowed to use their medium to redress the high handedness of the embattled Governor.
All concerned groups are watching developments with keen interest.
