I can swear, I never stole kobo from Kaduna govt coffers – El-Rufai


Governor Nasir El-Rufai of Kaduna State has said he did not steal public funds during his two terms in office.

Mr El-Rufai stated this at the weekend during his final media broadcast as governor.

According to him, the only house he built before he became a governor was the one he would retire to when his tenure expires on May 29, 2023.

He said: “I can swear I never stole a kobo from the government coffers,” Mr El-Rufai said in reaction to criticism of his performance in office.

“We didn’t collect this loan and run away to Dubai to buy houses or go to Jabi Road to build a mansion so that we can sleep well, that is not how we are.

“I became governor of Kaduna with only one house on Danja Road at Ungwan Sarki. Now I 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 steal 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.”
