The Wife of Kaduna State Governor, Mrs Ummi El-Rufai calls on people of the State today give her husband the necessary support in running the affairs of the State in order to achieve effective service delivery.

She made the call when she visited some selected communities within Kaduna South LGA in appreciation for re-electing her husband into office.

Mrs El-Rufai said the visit was aimed at re-tracing the campaign routes where they sought people’s votes for her husband’s re-election in order to thank them.

According to her, the APC Gida Gida team which she led during the 2019 gubernatorial campaign was designated to cover Igabi, Makarfi, Kaduna North and South Local Councils respectively, hence the appreciation visit.

Ummi explained that, the 2019 campaign council for Malam Nasiru El-Rufai’s re-election divided Kaduna LGAs into sections and had given specific areas to individuals and support groups for their various campaign activities.

“The specific areas designated to APC Gida Gida Ambassador were the areas we covered and carried out our campaign activities. In these areas, we had made promises that we would return to thank them if the Governor was re-elected successfully. Now that he has won, we are going back to thank them for their votes and as well fulfill our promises.”

The Governor’s wife therefore sought for the people’s support and prayers for her husband and also the entire leadership of the Country so that they can fulfill their promises to the people.

She also assured that the empowerment loan meant for women under the Human Services and Social Development Ministry, will go round the State.

“All the women in Kaduna might not necessarily benefit from the loan but majority of the women will receive the monies in due course.”

Earlier, while receiving the Governor’s wife, the District Head of Badiko, Kaduna South LGA, Alhaji Usman Sani expressed appreciation for the developmental projects being executed by government in their community, especially the construction of road dualization from the Government House to Badiko road.

On his part, his counterpart, District Head of Unguwan Muazu, Alhaji Aminu Sa’idu said El-Rufai’s administration has created jobs for the people of his community and also applauded the Governor’s wife for taking out time to appreciate them for casting their votes for her husband.

Also speaking, the District Head of Kakuri, Alhaji Shehu Tijjani who was represented by the Council Secretary, Alhaji Sa’idu Sani said, since the inception of democracy, no government has ever visited to appreciate them after elections.

The APC Gida Gida team who campaigned for the 2019 re-election bid of Governor Nasiru El-Rufai are on an appreciation tour in fulfillment of their promise to thank people after the elections.
