Emir Of Zazzau: Governor ElRufai Orders Fresh Selection Process

Kaduna State Government has directed the five kingmakers of the Zazzau emirate to begin a fresh selection of candidates for the 19th emir of Zazzau after it jettisoned the earlier list submitted to it.
The state government on Wednesday stated that the earlier processes had excluded two untreated applicants including the Bunu Zazzau and the Sarkin Dajin Zazzau who it claimed had protested their exclusion in the selection processes.
One of the reasons given for the latest directive for a new selection, according to the statement, issued by Governor Nasir El-Rufai’s Special Adviser on Media and Communication, Muyiwa Adeyeye was that the kingmakers had assessed two candidates on 24th September 2020 without sighting their CVs which the selectors received a day later. “The SSG explained that the Kaduna State Government directed a new round of the selection process following the cancellation of the initial process, which excluded two interested applicants. The Bunu Zazzau complained that he was unable to submit his application because he was told that the window for receipt of applications had closed. The Sarkin Dajin Zazzau also protested his exclusion from the process,” the statement noted. It noted that the kingmakers of Zazzau emirate were currently engaged in a fresh process to recommend candidates for the office of the 19th Fulani Emir of Zazzau adding that “the state government considers as highly irregular the leakage of the report of the selection meeting of 24th September 2020 before its receipt by the state governor.” 
“The kingmakers are now meeting to assess all the 13 candidates that indicated interest from all the ruling houses, including the two that were previously excluded. The report of these assessments will be swiftly submitted to the governor for his consideration,” the statement concluded.
