‘Grass suffers when two elephants fight’, Gov Sani tells Kaduna assembly

Senator Uba Sani

Governor Uba Sani on Wednesday pledged not to interfere with the activities of the Kaduna House of Assembly, stressing that when the two arms of government fight, the people will suffer.

Mr Sani, who stated this in Abuja at a three-day post-inauguration induction programme for members of the 10th Kaduna State House of Assembly, appealed for a strong working synergy with the lawmakers.

Represented by Deputy Governor Hadiza Balarabe, the governor called for a working synergy between the legislature and executive for a stronger relationship.

This, according to him, will enable the executive and legislative arms of government to provide dividends of democracy to the Kaduna people. He stressed that a harmonious working relationship between the legislature and executive would benefit the state more and enable both arms of government to succeed in their duties and responsibilities.

“It is for this purpose that I appointed a deputy chief of staff (legal and legislative matters) to act as a link and with a view to strengthening this relationship. I want to assure you that on the part of the executive, we shall continue to give you maximum support and cooperation to ensure mutual respect and cordial relationship,” Mr Sani explained.

The governor added, “When you are in your executive sessions, discuss issues on how to improve the state through harmonious relationship with the executive and not how to fight and bring it to a standstill. When two elephants fight, it is the grass that suffers. Let us not subject the good people of our state to that predicament.”

He noted that posterity would judge “us in bad light if we fail to use our mandates to make life better for our people.”

The governor also mentioned that the induction marked an important step in the legislative work of the Kaduna assembly.

According to him, the induction will significantly increase the lawmakers’ understanding of their roles and responsibilities in the democratic process.
