2019: I Have no Grudges Against Christians in Kaduna State – El-Rufai
Kaduna state governor, Nasir El-Rufa’i, has denied claims that he does not like Christians in the state.
He said that his decision to pick a Muslim running mate was not based on religion and ethnicity, as speculated.
The governor disclosed this during a Town Hall Meeting with a group of pastors under the auspices of ‘Pastors United For Change Association.
In my life, I have never worked with people based on religious and ethnic consideration. Don’t look at what people said but what I have done in the past. Go through my records and see what I have done. On the issue of my running mate, we are encouraging women participation in politics. She is a competent woman.
“Late Prof. Andrew Nok, our late Commissioner for Education, brought Hadiza Balarabe when we were looking for someone that can revive our primary health in the state and she performed excellently well. I don’t know her before. Her choice as a running mate has nothing to do with religion. I am confident that my running mate will run the state effectively and will be fair to all in the state even if I am not around”.
