Nasir El-Rufai, the governor of Kaduna State, declared on Saturday that until May 29—the day he leaves office—his administration would continue to remove “bad people” and destroy bad buildings. El-Rufai revealed this in Kaduna during the presentation of the governor’s biography, “Putting The People First,” written by renowned journalist and public commentator Emmanuel Ado. Eugenia Abu, a former newscaster for the Nigerian Television Authority, wrote a review of the book.
“Anything bad we find, we’ll get rid of so the next governor won’t have to do it again. Be on the lookout because we will continue to fire bad actors and get rid of bad things until the very last minute when we leave office, warned El-Rufai. El-Rufai meets with local leaders to discuss the murders in southern Kaduna. Nyesom Wike, the governor of Rivers State, said that his Kaduna counterpart was never known to be a sycophant and that he was a fearless man who spoke truth to power during his speech at the event.
This occurred as the President-elect, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, was being represented by Kashim Imam, a former chairman of the Tertiary Education Trust Fund. Tinubu described El-Rufai as a governor who completed any task he was given. Wike, who remembered the contentious letter El-Rufai wrote to the President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari, where he urged Buhari to fulfill public expectations to avoid being on the wrong side of history, donated N20 million there in March 2017.
