…Says He’ll Consolidate on El-Rufai’s Giant  Strides 

As the heat ahead of the 2023 general election gathers momentum, Dr. Abdulmalik Durunguwa , the  Commissioner representing Kaduna State in the National Population Commission NPC), has declared interest to contest the highly coveted seat of Governor of Kaduna State.
According to him,Kaduna needs a visionary, detribalised and unifying factor as a leader ,who will take over from Governor Nasir El-Rufai .

Dr Abdulmalik Durunguwa, who disclosed this during a chat with a selected group of journalists at his Kaduna Office on Monday said , Governor El-Rufai has raised the bar of governance and it will require someone versatile, intelligent and focused to consolidate on the overwhelming development strides administrative prowess .
He further said ,” In recent times, I have watched a lot of Leaders, lot of governors emerging in this country and have every reasons based on my experience to believe that the two Governors that have ever endeared my heart in Kaduna State and worked with is Governors Ahmed Muhammad Makarfi and Nasir El-Rufai. 

While noting that everyone of them has his own gift or endowment that God gave him, he said “When Makarfi was doing his best to develop the rural areas, El-Rufai concentrated in trying to make Kaduna a modern city and of course ,it’s well achieved.” 
For Dorunguwa an APC Chieftain in Kaduna,   anyone who is  desirous to hold elective positions in any country of the  world , must have interest of the people,  especially the masses at heart.
“We must understand that the cardinal objectives of every government is to save lives and property of her citizens and make them comfortable. 
“On that principle alone, I feel there is a gap right now. In Nigeria, we need Leaders, who are bold enough to stand on their feet and say there are certain things that must stop.” 
He equally pointed out that the security of life and property in this country is very Paramount.Stressing ” If it’s the last duty a leader can do to make sure others are sleeping and going about their activities, he should be able to sacrifice. That’s one of the reasons I’m stepping in to contest . 
” I also have a knowledge of the socio-cultural nature of Kaduna and  that of neighbouring States that borders Kaduna. If there is going to be a real synergy, I think we can be able to give our people peace, and of course, it’s only when there’s peace that you can have  development. 
“No matter the project you are undergoing, if there is no peace and harmony, I’m telling you it’s just going to be a useless project.”
While urging Kaduna people to consider merit and tmtested passion to serve and  deliver , Dorunguwa said ,I’m assuring you that what El-Rufai has done within the past years is  to have given Kaduna a face lift and will not only consolidate on it and build bridges of trust and development .

” We can all see that El-Rufai  has raised the bar and when that bar is been raised, I come to analyse myself and I know myself and said look: El-Rufai needs somebody, who can equally do it.
“Apart from knowing the socio-cultural nature of the state,there is need for someone ,who have the extra ability to think outside the box and maintain what is going on and  go back as well as  see what he can do to the rural dwellers so they can be comfortable. 
” I  am a farmer up till tomorrow. I rear cows,  I’m always in the village. So, I feel this is the right time that somebody should come on board ,who would be able to atleast galvanize the whole Kaduna, bring it together and make sure that there is equitable and fair balance in whatever that is been carried out in the state. And that is the cardinal principles why I feel, i should be the person to step in to contest . 
“But before I could even think, my people from southern part of Kaduna rose and said Durungwa, you are the only person that we think can be able to make sure you take over from El-Rufai and continue the good job that he has done and also think of how to help us in the rural areas and have sustainable  peace, progress and development.”
