The Kaduna State House of Assembly on Thursday rejected the nomination of Aliyu Jafaru as commissioner over an old Facebook post criticizing Governor Nasir El-Rufai’s education policy.
Mr Jafaru, 42, was nominated for confirmation as Hon. Commissioner for Agriculture by Mr El-Rufai.
“You criticized the same administration about to employ you now in one of your posts on Facebook.
“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?”
The nominee’s response however did not convince the House, which unanimously rejected his nomination.
