National leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Chief Bola Ahmed Tinubu, said in Kaduna that Governor Nasir El-Rufai is no more an accidental public servant as he once portrayed himself but a determined and well groomed governor ready to work heard to make life better for the down-trodden.
According to him, ”Kaduna suddenly is blessed with a performer, a trailblazer and a committed governor. “This time, no longer the accidental civil servant, but rather a prepared governor whose experience, knowledge and deep understanding of good governance can be brought to bear in governing the Kaduna people.” Tinubu made the statement during the commissioning of 200 Kaduna Cabs Scheme.
He said he was honoured to be part of the empowerment scheme for the people by the government, adding “This is proactive effort geared at job creation. “The Kaduna Cab Scheme is a long overdue initiative.
And now that a people oriented government in charge, we are beginning to see not just bold ideas, but equally bold moves. “I have been made to understand that the Kaduna Green Cabs Programme is an initiative to revive taxi services in the state, using modern cars and well-trained owner-drivers.
It will also create a new generation of owner-drivers. “It is an economic empowerment program aimed at not just creating wealth, but providing jobs and affordable loans to the people of Kaduna State. The advantages of this initiative range from the economic, to the sociological and security.
It will help to begin to sanitize the taxi business system since a database is expected to be established and a monitoring technique. “I am impressed by the subsidized and soft loan nature of the scheme. It is governance with a human face.
