Governor of Kaduna State, Nasiru El-Rufai, has demolished the new parallel All Progressives Congress (APC) State Secretariat at 11b Sambo road, Kaduna.

The building was the property of serving Senator Suleiman Hunkuyi representing Kaduna North senatorial zone, who has vowed to oust the governor.

Front wall and part of the main building was bulldozed around 3:00 a.m. on Tuesday by a team from the KASUPDA under heavy security.

Two vehicles and many household properties were also damaged.

Abubakar Umar, Director General, Campaign, Senator Suleiman Hunkuyi, when contacted said the Senator will take legal action against the governor.

He said despite the demolition they will continue to maintain the building as the newly relocated State Secretariat of the APC.

He said: “The secretariat was demolished by officials of KASUPDA around 3:00 a.m. on Tuesday morning under heavy security, without any prior notice served to us.

KASUPDA is said to have acted on the direct orders from Governor El-Rufai, who was on February 18, suspended from the party by the faction for a period of six months.

The faction, led by Mr Danladi Wada, and which claims legitimacy of the party, had said in a statement that El-Rufai was suspended from the party following his refusal to respond to the query issued by the party’s State Working Committee.

El-Rufai was earlier on Feb. 15 queried by the Wada-led faction over allegations of anti-party activities among other related offences.

The faction had equally suspended three of the governor’s aides, including his Adviser on Political Matters, Malam Uba Sani, and the State Commissioner for Finance, Alhaji Suleiman Kwaru, for similar offences.

It would be recalled that the El-Rufai administration on April 6, 2017, ordered the same agency to demolish the Kaduna residence of Alhaji Inuwa Abdulkadir, the party’s North-West Vice Chairman.

KASUPDA officials who demolished the Zonal Chairman’s house, located at No. 29 Yakubu Avenue, alleged that the structure was erected in violation of the state development plan.

Hunkuyi’s campaign chief, Abubakar Umar, said: “Senator Hunkuyi will take legal action against the governor for illegally demolishing his property.”

“We shall also maintain the building as our newly relocated Kaduna State Secretariat of the APC. We will not be intimidated,” he added.
