Ramalan YeroGovernor Mukhtar Ramalan Yero of Kaduna state has denied news making the rounds that he is making moves to succeed the governor of Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), Sanusi Lamido Sanusi whose five-year tenure will expire in June 2014.

Yero who was sworn in as governor last November following the death of Patrick Yakowa in a chopper crash, denied the report yesterday in a statement by his media aide, Ahmed Maiyaki.

“While we may have ignored this insinuation as another handiwork of mischief makers, it is pertinent to put the record straight in the interest of providing accurate information to the people of Kaduna State and beyond, to save them from falling gullible to falsehood.

“We wish to state categorically that His Excellency is completely devoted to delivering democracy dividends to the people of Kaduna state, to justify the mandate giving to this administration by the people.

“His Excellency remains committed and focused to providing purposeful leadership that will bring about rapid transformation of Kaduna state. His preoccupation at the moment is how to draw up and execute comprehensive master plan that would improve the overall living conditions of the entire people of Kaduna state,” the statement said.

Information Nigeria learnt that two serving state governors have intensified lobbying to succeed Sanusi in the event his tenure is not renewed by the FG.


  1. Haba, Ramalan don’t be a greedy person, u have been a Governor, accidentally. by accepting the appointment people are not be happy with u especially the people of Kaduna State who are expecting rapid development in the State at large in respect of ethnic, and religious differences.

  2. Hahahahahahahahahahahahahaha politics, Mr Governor Kaduna better remain where you are ooo, because I can smell something fishy here and if you make the mistake of receiving any mouth watering offer, then you have falling for the trick sir.
    Kaduna state is strategic to the success of GEJ in the North and it is more strategic if controlled by his own loyalist. If you move from that seat, it wont be long before you realize that you have been shaved bald.
