KADUNA, North-West, Nigeria – Kaduna State guber aspirant under the platform of the Social Democratic Party, (SDP), Haruna Sa’eed, on Wednesday said that the Mallam Nasir El-Rufai’s led administration has lost touch with electorate in the state, saying that the government has failed the people.

Sa’eed who is contesting for the third time for the same seat made the assertion during his declaration of intent at the SDP party Secretariat in Kaduna.
“The reality is that in all aspects of governance like agriculture, health, infrastructure among others, people have seen real failure in the government of Mallam El-rufai who has been unable to deliver on all the promises made to the people and, thus call for a change”, he said.

While frowning at the leadership style of El-Rufai’s government, he said: “You see leadership is about the personality and the people that come together with the leadership to create the change.

“I know this state very well, I have served Kaduna state and contributed immensely to bring about the desired development at the time. I ensured that basic expectations on the part of the government were made with our supports.

“In the first instance, nobody would aspire for a position that is not vacant, but because the citizens have shown their interest in replacing the current leadership, that is why I have accepted the call. Otherwise I would not need to contest if citizens were not asking for a new leadership.

“Therefore it is not me, but the people are committed to having a new leadership, and all I have done is to answer the call of the people. The challenge is not mind but that of the people,” he said.

According to Sa’eed, what is required of a government is to build confidence in the people and bring them back to appreciate the government and those in authority.

He promised, if given the opportunity to steer the affairs of the state, he will restore the lost trust of people for government.
“The case in Kaduna State today is that people do not trust the leadership of Mallam El-Rufai and they want a change”, he said.

Speaking on his experience, the gubernatorial aspirant said: “I have been there for eleven years as Accountant General of the state. And as the chief accounting officer then, the entire state is not new to me, and the capacity of trying to deliver on what governance is all about has always been there and all we need is to bring it to the fore”.
