El-Rufai not involved in accident, aide says


Over the past days, telephone calls from various individuals have jammed Kaduna State airwaves as rumours made the rounds that the state governor, Nasir El-rufai, was involved in a fatal accident in the early hours of Thursday.

The rumour had it that El-rufai’s driver died in the accident, while the governor himself sustained serious injury.

However, contrary to the rumours, Governor El-rufai is hale and hearty and was not involved in any form of accident.

El-rufai’s Senior Special Adviser on Media and Communication, Muyiwa Adekeye, confirmed that the governor is in good health in a tweet on his official handle.

Adekeye wrote, “While Malam Nasir @elrufai was at post-election reception in Kaduna on Sunday night, some liars placed him in Kano. Now they are spreading tales that he was involved in a fatal accident. Hatred is not a political strategy.

“The hatred that moves people to peddle lies, concort rumours of accident and try to pass off their ill-will as God’s doing is a burden on those who have permitted reason to exit their minds and have given their hearts to a constricting narrowness.”

Before now, rumours that the governor was involved in an accident were all over town; this people kept discussing in hush tones. However, Adekeye’s tweet has laid to rest all that.
