In preparation for his second tenure, Kaduna state Governor, Nasir El-Rufai, has directed all political appointees in the state to resign by April 30, 2019.

In a statement by Samuel Aruwan, media aide to the governor, issued on Tuesday in Kaduna, El-Rufai also ordered that such appointees should forward the resignation letters with their handover notes to his Principal Private Secretary.

This, according to the Governor is to enable him to commence the selection of the team for his second term.

He also said the resignation has become necessary in order to give the Kaduna State Ministry of Finance adequate time to compute severance payments and reconcile any liabilities.
