The indigens of Birchi community of Kurfi Local Government, Katsina State has called on the Executive Governor of Katsina State, His Excellency Aminu Bello Masari to consider one of their own in his ‘Next Level’ cabinet.
This is contained in a communique issued by Birchi Youth Forum and signed by the forum’s Chairman and Secretary Abubakar Aminu Birchi and Surajo Sa’ad Birchi respectively after its 6th annual general meeting.
The Communique reads in part: “We Birchi Youth Forum (B.Y.F) at our 6th Annual General Meeting on 8th June 2019 resolve to write and congratulate his Excellency Aminu Bello Masari, the Executive Governor of Katsina State on his reelection to stir the affair of our dear state for the second term. We wish him Allah Guidance throughout his stewardship.
“At the same vain we will like to use this opportunity to call on the attention of his Excellency of the unbalanced and undemocratic Hijack of political Appointments in Kurfi Local Government. It is a known fact that ninety-nine percent of appointments and positions slated for Kurfi Local Government are been hijack and held by People of Kurfi Town since 1999 to date.
“It is just recently, under stewardship of his Excellency with his vast experience in politics and his fatherly style of Leadership that gives room for people of other towns in the Local Government the Freedom to aspire, be considered and hold Appointment ever in the history of the Local Government appointments, which makes some major towns in the Local Government to hold positions as Tsauri have Caretaker committee Chairman, Wurma Vice Chairman, Tamu Sectary, Rawayau the member state House, Barkiya Katsina central senator and Local Government Education Sectary.
“However despite given out the above mentions positions to other town in the Local Government, Kurfi Town still occupy the highest and strategic positions slated for the Local Government, such as a Commissioner in the State Independent Electoral Commission (SIEC), A.P.C Deputy Treasurer at state level, Local government A.P.C Chairman, Treasurer, Sectary and P.R.O among others. To this end, BIRCHI is the only politically recognized and strategic town in Local Government not holding any Position.
“Birchi town is blessed with qualified people who have offered their selfless service and support towards his Excellency victory that deserved to be recognized and rewarded for appointment as commissioner, special adviser or even federal level appointment. We urge his Excellency to look further inward and pick from these crops of people who have worked tirelessly towards his victory for onward appointment to represent the Local Government in the State Executive Council.”
