The Secretary to Kaduna State Government, Balarabe Abbas Lawal has disclosed that Kingmakers of Zauzau Emirate are currently engaged in a fresh process to recommend candidates for the office of the 19th Fulani Emir of Zazzau.
This was contained in a statement by the
Special Adviser to the Governor ,Media & Communication,Muyiwa Adekeye.
Adekeye noted that a new round of the selection process has been directed by the state government following the cancellation of the initial process, which excluded two interested applicants,the Bunu Zazzau and Sarkin Dajin Zazzau.
He said the Bunu Zazzau complained that he was unable to submit his application because he was told that the window for receipt of applications had closed while the Sarkin Dajin Zazzau also protested his exclusion from the process.
According to the government spokesperson,It was also noted that the kingmakers assessed two candidates on 24th September 2020 without sighting their CVs which the selectors received a day later.
The SSG said that the state government considers as highly irregular the leakage of the report of the selection meeting of 24th September 2020 before its receipt by the state governor.
The kingmakers are now meeting to assess all the 13 candidates that indicated interest from all the ruling houses, including the two that were previously excluded.
The report of these assessments will be swiftly submitted to the governor for his consideration, the statement concluded.
