Have Never Stolen Money In Government – Says El-Rufai

Nasir El-Rufai of Kaduna State has stated that he has never stolen government money as he challenged his predecessors in the State to come out and swear to have never pilfered the state treasury. 

El-Rufai who said this during an interview in Hausa monitored on a local TV and Radio station, said his philosophy in governance was not to steal as he’s aware there would be a day of reckoning. 

He Noted; 

“I’m happy that we constructed qualitative roads that would last for years. Not those kinds of roads they’ve constructed in the past which after 2 years, after 2 rainy seasons the roads would be bad.

“We still have work to do, our plan is that we want all roads in Kaduna to be tarred. Anyone who comes to Kaduna would not see a muddy road. Every part of the town you visit will have tarred roads and solar-powered street lights.

“However, we couldn’t realized all our development plans because of the situation this government met. In fact, we had to seek for loan to execute those projects. 

“The people can see that we executed those projects with the loan we secured. We did not siphon the money to Dubai and bought houses or go to Jabi Road and build a mansion. 

“We are not like such people. 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 bu
