According to Hon. Jonathan Asake, former Reps member (Zangon Kataf/Jaba Federal Constituency), ?There have been conflicting media reports on whether Amina Mohammed’s ministerial nomination came under Kaduna or Gombe State.

But, one thing is certain. The woman is not an indigene of Kaduna State. If it is true that she was nominated to fill Kaduna state quota, then it is a slight on the Constitution and the President must act fast to reverse it. If it is also true that her nomination was the handiwork of Governor Nasir El Rufai of Kaduna State, then I think he is taking the people of this state into a rough ride.

Speaking on the issue,Senator Danjuma La?ah, Kaduna South Senatorial District, who had earlier opposed Mohammed?s nomination in the Senate, said: ??What I can tell you for now, even as a Senator of the Federal Republic, is that I am not sure under which state Amina Mohammed is coming from. But, there is one thing I want to tell you that I shall do.

I want to assure you that if she comes under the nomination of Kaduna State, we shall reject her at the Senate. She is not from Kaduna state. There is no shortage of deeply educated and equally, if not more, qualified indigenes of Kaduna State that can do any ministerial job that Amina can do. We have them both in the state and all over the world. In any case, I cannot see the President messing up to the extent of violating the constitution to the point of excluding Kaduna state from producing a minister.
