The group popularly known as ‘Akida (True APC),’ was said to have showed that it is not satisfied with the way El-Rufai runs the affairs of the state.

Akida made this known in Kaduna through Mr. Maitaimaki Maiyashi, the chairman of the executive committee of the group, Premium Times reports.

We gathered that Maiyashi said that the state was walking into another cycle of avoidable crises. He alleged that two years down the line, the people of the state have witnessed hardship, dehumanisation and complete disregard for their democratic rights.

The chairman of the executive committee of the group said: “The party is deliberately weakened and virtually ineffective.

''Mercenaries are hired to attack individuals and anybody who dares any opinion meant to add value to public policy.

‘’The only opinion or input respected is those of hired consultants specifically recruited from outside the state who do not even understand our environment and lack the commitment to address our developmental priorities.''

Mr. Maiyashi also said that the Zaria Water project commissioned on May 29, 2017 is a “most classical fraud meant to win honour fraudulently.” “We also ask, what is the wisdom in harassing Kasuwan Barci Traders to build a Dubai modern shopping mall? ’What is the wisdom in auctioning public assets developed over several decades? What is the wisdom in destroying community identity and security such as the mindless sacking of all district heads and over 4,000 village heads? ‘’What is the wisdom in securing a huge foreign loan from World Bank when the state is already heavily burdened with external loans running into several billion?”

Among the group members Isa Ashiru, the party’s governorship aspirant who lost to Mr. El-Rufai during the 2015 primaries; a senator, Shehu Sani; a chieftain of APC, Yaro Makama; Sule Buba; Ibrahim Iko, as well as the Chairman, Liberty Television and Radio, Tijjani Ramalan.

Meanwhile, the comment made by the Kaduna state governor Nasir El-Rufai, concerning the issue of restructuring, had been described as ‘irresponsible’ by a member of the National Executive Council of Arewa Consultative Forum (ACF), Mohammed Abdulrahman.

The governor reportedly referred to those calling for restructuring of Nigeria as ‘opportunists’.
