Governor of Kaduna State, Mukhtar Ramalan Yero, has debunked claims in some quarters that he is considering resigning from his position to enable him replace Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), Sanusi Lamido Sanusi, at the expiration of his tenure.

A statement issued by Yero’s Director General (DG), Media and Publicity, Ahmed Maiyaki, this evening in Kaduna said: “It has come to our notice that some miscreants are peddling the rumour of a purported move to appoint His Excellency, Governor Mukhtar Ramalan Yero as Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) at the expiration of the tenure of the current Governor of the Apex Bank, Sanusi Lamido Sanusi.

“While we may have ignored this insinuation as another handiwork of mischief makers, it is pertinent to put the record straight in the interest of providing accurate information to the people of Kaduna State and beyond, to save them from falling gullible to falsehood.

“We wish to state categorically that His Excellency is completely devoted to delivering democracy dividends to the people of Kaduna State, to justify the mandate giving to this administration by the people. The Governor has no interest in taking up appointment at the CBN or any other institution.

"His Excellency, Alhaji (Dr.) Mukhtar Ramalan Yero, remains committed and focused to providing purposeful leadership that will bring about rapid transformation of Kaduna State.

“His preoccupation at the moment is how to draw up and execute comprehensive master plan that would improve the overall living conditions of the entire people of Kaduna State.

“The Governor remains resolute in his principle of putting the interest of the people above personal interest and cannot be distracted by these recent antics of scoundrels and political jobbers bent on creating confusion in the society.

“We call on the good people of Kaduna State to ignore such wicked rumours and join hands with the present administration to take our State to greater heights.”
