The APC Supporters Forum in Kaduna, has called on the All Progressive Congress (APC) Governorship Candidate, Sen. Uba Sani, to pick Governor Nasir El-Rufai’s Deputy Chief of Staff, Barrister James Kanyip as his running mate.

The group said that the choice of Kanyip will make Senator Sani’s administration to seamlessly consolidate El-Rufai’s government achievements when elected, considering Kanyip’s wealth of experience.

Kaduna State, from the inception of the APC administration, has run a merit driven government, the multiethnic composition of appointees cut across not just the state alone, but extends to other states all to get the right hands on deck. This is the secret recipe for the success of the Malam Nasir el-Rufa’i’s Administration,” the group said.

“With the ending of this government in less than a year, the emergence of Uba Sañi as the gubernatorial candidate of the APC promises to receive the baton and continue in pursuit of more successes in the state. To succeed, this government must build on the culture of picking the right team to deliver results. The first test of resolve in persuading excellence will be in the choice of his deputy.”

“That way, his government can have an effective representation with good advocacy and mediation across the state. This can be best achieved when his choice of deputy ticks these boxes.”

“Going through options that have been fronted for the position of the deputy governor, there is no better candidate that fits that bill like Barrister James Atung Kanyip, current Deputy Chief of Staff to the Governor in the Deputy Governor’s office.”
