Kaduna State governor, Nasir El-Rufai has said he does not care if he loses the forthcoming governorship election in the state.
He said all he is after is the exercise being conducted under a transparent manner.
El-Rufai made this known while speaking at an event organised by the State Peace Commission, National Peace Commission and the UN. The governor said the most important job for his administration is to govern and ensure peaceful election in the state. He said;
“Let me say this on my behalf and on behalf of the Kaduna state government of today, our most important job now is to govern the state. What does governing the state mean? Governing state means ensuring peaceful coexistence through to the elections and after.
We took an oath of office to govern the state on fairness and on justice and we are going to do that, like I said , till 29 May, 2019, whether we are re-elected or not, it does not matter, if we are re-elected , we will do our best. It also does not matter if we are not re-elected.
We will move on with our lives, politics is not our permanent profession. This is part of the reasons why we are ready to sign the peace accord. This election is not a do or die affair, we are not desperate. We are campaigning on our records, we do not care if we lose the election so long it is not stolen against the will of the electorate”
