'El-Rufai: "Being A Governor Is Not Easy, Sometimes I Feel Like Running Away'" by Crimecity: 9:02am On Dec 06
Kaduna state governor, Nasir El-Rufai says it is not easy to preside over the affairs of many people and that sometimes he feels like running away.

Governor El-Rufai who is seeking a second term in office, said this when he spoke at an election summit organised by the Kaduna State Peace Commission. He said he would accept defeat if he loses the 2019 governorship election, adding that he would be in a hurry to pack out of the government house.

“Let me first speak as the governorship candidate of the APC. Our party is committed to peace and peaceful elections. The political parties that merged into the APC were victims of rigged elections and the consequential violence that came with it.

It is the rigging of elections that leads to violence. It was the massive rigging of the elections in 2011 that led yo the wide spread violence at that time and Kaduna state alone, lost over 800 lives.

“As the candidate of the APC, I am saying here and now that I am in a hurry to park out of the government house if the people do not vote for me. I will be the first to concede and I want to tell all that want to be governor that it is not an easy job… I want to run away.

“It is just that when I look at those that want to be governor and what they have done to the state in the past, I have a duty to protect the state, the ordinary people of the state from the evils of past.”

Governor El-Rufai vowed to deal with anyone who promotes hate speech and religious sentiments on social media in the state.

“This is the biggest problem we are facing as a sitting government and I want to appeal to all of us politicians to reflect, think and desist from this because when you destroy lives by giving young people weapons and drugs for election purposes, what do you do with them after you win. They become a monster that is difficult to control. We have no thugs in the APC.

All those that campaign with us, we try to empower them to be employed so that they will be off the street. These are very serious issues for us so I want to appeal to my colleagues to temper our language, because politics is not war.
“We are doing that vigorously; we do not care what people say.

Anyone that comes to Kaduna and say something or even say it outside Kaduna and his house is not in Kaduna state, no matter who he is, whether he calls himself bishop or Imam or Sheikh, whether he calls himself chief or Hakimi, we will bring him to justice.

We will arrest and bring him to Kaduna and prosecute him and we are on the trail of many of them that have insignificantly done this. Some in Abuja, some in Lagos, we will bring them to Kaduna and try them for incitement, for malicious falsehood, for hate speech. We are determined to do that and we will not politicise it because the protection of lives and property should never be politicise'' he said

When a midget tries to be clever by half. Campaigning for reelection while also talking about running away. Typical APC logic. Yeye!

Just as Buhari once stupidly said he almost ran away because of the enormity of Nigeria's problems after contesting for the post for about 12 years.

The reality of your incompetence in Kaduna and imminient defeat is already making El-Rufai paranoid.As well as the rippling effects of the PDP NE rally hangover is still affecting this midget.

Here are some excerpt

He said, "Now, we're supposed to believe that he's not a clone because, you know, if the CIA did have that technology, they're gonna test it on an African first. You don't just try that out on rich white people.

"The CIA chief is gonna be like, 'This might not work the first time, so find me somebody who doesn't matter. The president of Nigeria? Yes, that's perfect.

Remove wickedness, hypocrisy,bigotry, nepotism and sectionalism from your governance and you will be very free and you will have peace. Remember there is no peace for the wicked.
