Mr. Aliyu Jafaru, who was was nominated to serve as a commissioner of Agriculture in Kaduna state has been rejected.
The state Lawmakers rejected him on the ground that he had months ago criticized Mr. Nasir El-Rufai, the state Governor on Facebook on his education policy.
The lawmakers screened all the nominated commissioner except Jafaru.
Mr. Aminu Shagali, the State Assembly Speaker, reminded his colleagues about Jafaru Facebook post where he criticized the governor’s policies.
“You criticized the same administration about to employ you now in one of your posts on Facebook.
“You said there’s nothing good about the education policy and attacked the governor.
“Notwithstanding that, the governor chose you based on merits. Your CV was chosen among about 10 CVs presented to the governor, do you think it’s honorable to accept this nomination to work for an administration you think is a bad one?”
Jafaru was rejected on that basis by the lawmakers.
