Governor Nasir El-Rufai of Kaduna State has challenged his predecessors in the State to come out and swear that they have never pilfered the state treasury.
He said in an interview in Hausa monitored on a local TV and Radio station that his philosophy in governance was not to steal as he was aware there would be a day of reckoning.
I became the Governor of Kaduna state with only one house located at Danja Street in Unguwan Sarki Kaduna. I’ve completed my tenure, Alhamdulillah…that is my only house. I don’t have any other house. I didn’t build a mansion. I don’t even need it.”
” I did not steal anybody’s money and I am challenging those who governed Kaduna to come out and swear that they‘ve never stolen money, they should swear that they’ve not taken a kobo from Kaduna State. “
“Wallahi, l am ready to swear. I am challenging them ( former Governors) to come out, face the people of Kaduna State and swear that they’ve never stolen the people’s money.”
” We know them, they are neither the children of Dantata( legendary Kano billionaire) nor the children of Dangote. We know them right from our school days. Where do they get the money to build those houses? What was their profession?”
