Governor Nasir El-Rufai, yesterday Tuesday 22nd May, presented brand new Peugeot cars to 9 second-class chiefs in the state. This is the second time the state government is extending this gesture to the royal fathers. Earlier on January 23 2018, Governor El-rufai presented brand new 301 Peugeot Salon cars to 13 third class chiefs.
The presentation demonstrates the government's resolve to strengthen and support the traditional rulers in discharging their duties.
Presenting the vehicles at Government House, Kaduna State Deputy Governor, Barnabas Yusuf Bala noted the contribution of the traditional rulers in ensuring peace in their domain. He described the role of the traditional rulers as key in transforming Kaduna state,
which is the goal of the state government.
Brand new 4008 Peugeot (SUV) cars was given to the royal fathers of following chiefdoms:
- Numana Chiefdom
- Ninzo Chiefdom
- Koro Chiefdom
- Kajuru Chiefdom
- Jere Chiefdom
- Kagarko Chiefdom
- Kauru Chiefdom
- Lere Chiefdom
- Gbagyi Chiefdom.
The gesture was a fulfillment to 2015 promise by Governor Nasiru El-Rufai to alleviate the transportation difficulties of the traditional rulers, after a request made by the Emir of Zazzau on behalf of the Kaduna state traditional council.
