Kadaria made the statement on Saturday in Abuja in response to the killing of at least 50 people in the northwest state.
When asked what she thought of the efforts of the state government in addressing the issue, she said:
“As far as I am concerned, that Governor is the most useless governor in the history of Nigeria.
“Quote me: he is the most useless Governor in the history of Nigeria. This is a governor whose reaction to the killings in his state was to resign as the Chief Security Officer. He went on the record to say that he cannot be the Chief Security Officer. So, I don’t know what he is still doing in office; he doesn’t care.
“He only cares about the people of Zamfara when it comes to politics. The fact that they are getting killed does not concern him. He lives most of his time here in Abuja. How can you govern a state for eight years from Abuja? What sort of leadership is that? We are so happy he is on his way out.
“He is hopeless as a leader. He has not done well for our people. Under him, Zamfara has deteriorated.”
This statement has drawn multiple reactions on Twitter, and LailasNews has gathered some below;
@LeksOba – Kadaria in her protest pointed out the insecurity issues that has been going on for years in zamfara .. This is coming from a person who had the opportunity to ask these questions few months ago from the president
@Kenechukwu_F – Kadaria If you believe any state governor that fails to protect the lives of his people is useless, why not make same statement on kaduna killing??
Why are we turning to hypocrite?
@benigbakpa – Every right-thinking person will commend Kadaria for her discomfort on #ZamfaraKillings. #ZamfaraIsBleeding and this is not a time to castigate perceived sentiments of imprecise supporters of PMB. The elections are over, we must pull together for the sake of nationhood.
@9jaOriginal – Gov Yari has no power over the army and the police, he has cried out to the whole nation on the killings in Zamfara than Shettima ever did for Borno. I don’t know why anti Kadaria is blaming the Governor.
Its Mr President’s responsibility coz he the control of security.
@nonyedc – Kadaria is just taking advantage of the space Oby left because she knows it will make her more popular.
Zamfara was also burning heavily when she interviewed Buhari but she refused to grill him. Hypocrites!
@IAmKingsley007 – Hanty Kadaria Ahmed, aka Kaduna Amanpour has been selective with the national crisis she lends her voice to. Southern Kaduna happened – she was mute cos her Sis is First Lady. She was mute on #OperationPythonDance & now shouting cos it’s becoming a Northern Conflagration! 🤔
