Nuhu Bajoga
By SaharaReporters, New York

New Kaduna State governor, Mukhtar Ramalan Yero, has sent the name of the state's Peoples Democratic Party chair Nuhu Bajoga to the Kaduna state house of assembly for clearance and approval.

The Kaduna state commissioner of information, Saidu Adamu, today confirmed this to reporters.

SaharaReporters had broken the news on Saturday that Mr. Bajoga was the likely pick for the deputy governor slot following the death of Governor Patrick Yakowa two weeks ago. Mr. Yakowa died in a tragic navy helicopter crash along five others while returning from the burial of presidential aide,Oronto Douglas's father.

Mr. Bajoga, 63, who was the choice of Vice President Namadi Sambo might be sworn in later today.

 

 

 Kaduna State governnment citation-Meet Nuhu Audu Bajoga:

Born on the 4th July, 1949 to the family of late Mallam Nyam and Mama Hannatu Audu in Kwoi, present Jaba Local Government Area of Kaduna State, Ambassador nuhu Audu Bajoga attended SIM Primary School Kwoi between 1955-1959. He also attended Baptist Primary School Keffi between 1960-1963. He gained admission into SIM Secondary School, Kagoro in 1964 and obtained his West African School Certificate in 1968. He was at St. Paul’s College, Zaria between 1969-1970 for his Higher School Certificate (HSC). Ambassador Bajoga attended the Kaduna Polytechnic between 1972-1975 where he obtained a Diploma in Accounting. He was also in Slough College, England between 1976-1980 where he graduated and qualified into the Association of Certified Chartered Accountants (ACCA Professional II).

Back here in Nigeria, Ambassador Bajoga had a stint with the Kaduna State Civil Service. He was an Accountant with the Kaduna State Ministry of Health and later Kaduna State Ministry of Trade, Industry and Cooperatives, all between 1975-1976. Bajoga joined cement giant in Nigeria, Ashaka Cement Plc in 1980, as the first Internal Audit Manager. He was appointed Area Manager for Bauchi, Jos and Kano in 1981 and served in that capacity until 1988. He was sales administrative Manager in 1989. He was elevated to the position of Regional Manager in-charge of North West and North-East Zones between 1989-1993. His transparency, diligence and total commitment to duty earned him the confidence of the company’s management thereby, appointed him as General Manager  Support Services, a position he held from 1993 until his retirement from Ashaka cement in 2002.

It is needless to mention that while in Ashaka Cement, Ambassador Bajoga was not only hard working, but was a true and worthy Ambassador of the people of Kaduna State. His active participation in politics began soon after his retirement. His partnership with the famous  Yusuf Hamisu Abubakar (a.k.a Mairago) stormed Kaduna politics like a hurricane in the wake of the 2003 gubernatorial race.

Bajoga was appointed Ambassador extra-ordinary and plenipotentiary of the Federal Republic of Nigeria to Poland and concurrently accredited to the Czech Republic. He served from 2004-2007. As a PDP member, Ambassador Bajoga had served the party in various capacities; in the course of serving the party, he had made very costly sacrifices including his life. The January 5th, 2011 party primaries of Lere and Kubau L.G.A that almost claimed his life in Zaria is a pellucid example. Ambassador Nuhu Audu Bajoga no doubt occupies a strategic position today in the politics of Kaduna State. In him dwells genuine charity, fear of God, unending love and unequalled simplicity. His patience and indiscriminate respect for all people earned him the confidence of arguably all party faithful when his nomination came up as PDP chairman in Kaduna State.

Ambassador Bajoga attended numerous courses at home and abroad. He is widely travelled, having visited among others; China, France, Republic of Ireland, Sweden, Germany, Niger-Republic, England, United Arab Emirate, Poland, India and The Czech Republic. He also served in various important boards and committees i.e He was a board member of the defunct Nigeria Universal Bank (NUB), he was also board member of the Kaduna State Water Board (KSWB) and of recent, he served as a member of the Kaduna state Peace and Reconciliation Committee.

 

He became the state chairman of Peoples’ Democratic Party (PDP) Kaduna State on 17th March, 2012. On assumption of office as chairman, he initiated Peace and Reconciliation moves amongst aggrieved PDP members. This initiative has brought about the return of many into the party mainstream. The earth-quaking decamping of Senator Ahmed Aruwa and his teaming supporters is a pellucid example. The recent successful and rancor free party primary of the PDP which culminated into  a resounding victory at the just concluded Local Government General Elections where PDP won 22 out of 23 Local Government Areas are all clear testimonies of the successful tenor he had as PDP chairman of Kaduna State until his God given and well deserved appointment as Deputy Governor of Kaduna State.

 

Ambassador Nuha Audu Bajoga plays Golf. He is happily married with children.

Is bajoga not a christian?

Is bajoga not a christian? Haba! my people lets know about someone before commenting...

appointment of deputy Gov

Mr. Wole you don't know what is going on in Kaduna State you better keep quite. The immediate past Chairman of Muslim Pilgrims Welfare Board is Amb. Sule Buba not Amb. Nuhu A. Bajoga who is a Christian from Southern Kaduna. God will not allow you to bring confusion in the State & Nigeria

Congratulating d new DG

I wish to congratulating the new DG AMB Nuhu Bajoga, and also i wil like to cautioned the this minority people of southern Zaria, do not think the evil u are flotting u wil succeed, it's a just from Hausa/Fulani that pick up Yakowa and put him on the sit of governor, not your vote or ur prayer, how can 20% can occopy a sit, can u compare Jos where Hausa/Fulani is alway been kill which are about 40% and above, also look at Taraba state the Christian say the will never allowed muslim to rule the Taraba state people of about 50% tacles of southern kd. Which u are not up to 25% i hereby advising u to be loyal to Majority.

Go to Plateau State and see

Go to Plateau State and see wonders. Its then you'll know to balance.

Let the hypocrites parading

Let the hypocrites parading themselves as vanguards of southern zaria please shut up and allow us to mourn Patrick Ibrahim Yakowa. You rigged for Jonathan and when Hausa Fulani protested peacefully, you killed them, cannibalised their bodies(as recorded in you tube)and destroyed their properties.Up till now the criminals that have committed such atrocities are at large. you know what your hands have sown that is why you are refusing Yakowa to rest in peace and busy cursing the new deputy governor, harassing the new governor and inciting violence. Can't you learn to have faith in Allah,be contented and stop all mischief and evil.
This loud mouths are the real hatemongers of kaduna, northern nigeria and enemies of muslims and christians in Nigeria.They are the corper killers.

nuhu bajoga & his southern zaria deliquent youths

This Nuhu Bajoga is educated and enlightened having worked all over northern nigeria. It seemed the deliquent youth of southern zaria want to hoist a myopic tribalised individual as deputy governor. Bishop Kukah should be arrested for trying to steer unrest instead of allowing Yakowa to rest in peace.

you are a fool.

you are a fool man, and do not know what you are saying.

PARTY DECAMPING

TO GOVERNOR MUKTAR RAMALaM YERO ALLAH YA TAYAKA RIKO.BUT, ARUWA'S'DECAMPING TO PDP SHOULD NOT BE SEEN AS ANY ACHIEVEMENT BECAUSE HE CAME INTO PDP WITH ONLY 2 KNOWN LOCAL GOVT OFFICIALS OF HIS FORMER PARTY THAT HE LOST CONTROL OF. BECAUSE OF HIS ANTY PARTY ACTIVIES. HIS CANDIDATE WAS DEPEATED IN THE CHAIRMANSHIP ELECTION DURING THE LAST STATE CONGRESS OF HIS FORMER HAVING BEEN TAKEN BY A MORE POWERFUL EXCO. WHAT HAS ARUWA'S'COMING TO PDP BENEFITED THE PARTY BESIDE INCREASING THE NUMBER OF APPOINTMENT SEEKING POLITICIANS. ARUWA'S'ALLY IN PDP IS THE STATE SECRETARY TO THE GOVT LAWAL SAMAILA AND NOT AMB NUHU BAJOGA. DO NOT ASSOCIATE BAJOGA WITH SUCH POLITICAL SUICIDE PLEASE.

I wish to congratulate the

I wish to congratulate the newly appointed Deputy Governor. You are the type of people we hope will protect our interest. Those who want to fight against the choice of God will perish.

I wonder what these southern

I wonder what these southern zarians want? Is Bajoga not one of you? Or is it greed? Remember you are not more than 4 of the 23 LGAs but always for peacefull coexistence you were given more than your share. Yakowa a 63yr old took a youthful Ramalan and now this same youthful Ramalan shd be given an elderly Bajoga. These stupid professionals have forgotten when Namadi on his violation left the seat for a southern zarian. Namadi also came back 2011 and rigged same Yakowa back to office. Pls allow peace in Kaduna state otherwise if you want to test Allah's will by causing trouble you wll further be the loosers! Stupid and shameless ppl!

Bajoga as Kaduna Deputy Governor Unacceptable

Bajoga is the immediate Chairman Kaduna State Muslims Pilgrims Welfare Board. His nomination is unfair,unjustice and contrary to the principles of federal character.Having a muslim governor and also muslim deputy governor not in the best interest of kaduna state.

This is a political

This is a political arithmatics to make strong hold of PDP kaduna for the same Islamic agenda against 2015, but God will surprise many people with his power. Just keep prayin Kaduna pple.

Hahaha

One hausa proverb says ''if u wnt dig hole of cruelity, dig it shallow bcoz one day u may fall into it accidentally''. It iz ur plan we copy becoz last tym jonathan under CAN advice, ascend namadi sambo to VP so that xtian occupy kaduna government, nw d same namadi ascend bajoga to deputy govn so that muslim wl occupy pdp chairman of d state. But becoz u r uzless u r complaining of it. Allah said in d qur'an '' they av plan and Allah av plan, and Allah is d best of planners''.

Appoint a christian Deputy...As in the case of VP Sambo

Why not appoint as deputy a Christian, as was the case when Sambo was elevated to VP.

All kaduna Christian must insist on this Balance. Haba what is this.

What is good for the geese is also good for the gander.

POLITICAL EXCHANGE

iT IS NOT BAJOGA THEY WANT. THEY WANT TO CAPTURE THE POSITION OF THE CHAIRMANSHIP OF THE PDP IN THE STATE.
THEY NEED THAT POSITION TO ACTUALIZE THE 2015 ASPIRATION. WHO THEN BECOMES THE NEW PDP STATE CHAIRMAN? WITH THE DEPUTY AUTOMATICALLY ASCEND TO THAT POSITION? OR TO BALANCE
THE POWER EQUATION THE POSITION WILL STILL BE LEFT IN ZONE 3? THE NATIONAL PDP SHOULD QUICKLY LOOK INTO THIS BEFORE..........

Damn...

Such an old man!
