The Kaduna State Governor, Senator Uba Sani, has denied rejecting his predecessor, Nasir El-rufai’s ministerial nomination.
DAILY POST recalls that El-Rufai’s nomination was stepped down during screening following an incomplete security check.
A few days after, El-Rufai rejected the offer but nominated a replacement.
However, a statement by Muhammad Lawal Shehu, the spokesman for the governor, clarified that the reports were inaccurate and aimed at creating unnecessary tension between Uba Sani and El-Rufai.
The Governor emphasised that the accurate aspect of the story was his meeting with the president, adding that at no point during the meeting did the issue of a replacement nominee come up for discussion.
He, therefore, called on media outlets, social media users and blogging platforms to refrain from spreading unverified and false information that could mislead readers and contribute to political tension in the country.
He also urged newsmen to recognise their role as the fourth estate of the realm and maintain integrity by sharing verified and balanced stories that contributed positively to the nation’s progress.
