I can sw£ar that I’ve never st%len a kobo from government’s coffers — Gov. El-Rufai

Kaduna State Governor Nasir El-Rufai has challenged his predecessors to come out and sw£ar with Holy Qur’an that they did not st£al from the government’s coffers when they were in office.

The Kaduna State Governor who said this during a media chat on Sunday said he is ready to do so. However, El-Rufai, accused some of his predecessors of using funds they st%le from public till while they were in office to build mansions in Kaduna and Dubai, United Arab Emirates. He noted that he hasn’t st%len a kobo from the government’s treasury since he was elected to govern Kaduna in 2015.

He cited the fact that he still has the only house he built before he became a governor in Kaduna. “As a result of that, every Naira and Kobo that we got, whether revenue or allocation from Abuja or loan, I swear by God, we have used it for the development of our people. We didn’t take and put in our pockets or take them to buy houses in Dubai, we don’t need that. I’m happy with what I have seen, but there is still more to be done because, to us, we want people to enter Kaduna and see no untarred road anywhere.

I became governor of Kaduna with only one house on Danja Road at Ungwan Sarki, now am finishing to the glory of God, that is the only house I have. I didn’t build any mansion, I don’t need it. I didn’t st£al anybody’s money and I am challenging everyone that governed this state to also come out and swear with the Qur’an that, when they governed the state, they didn’t steal a kobo of Kaduna resource that is not their entitlement.

I swear to God, me I will do that swearing. So, I am challenging all of them, everyone should come out and face the people of Kaduna State and tell them he didn’t steal their money. Because we know them, they are children of Santa, they are not children of Dangote; we know them from school. Where did they get money to build those mansions? What type of business were they doing? We know. I can swear I never st%le a Kobo from the government coffers.”
