It’s not Easy To Be A Governor, I feel Like Runing Away – El-Rufai
The governor of Kaduna state, Nasir el-Rufai says it is not easy to preside over the affairs of many people.
Speaking at an election summit organised by the Kaduna State Peace Commission, the governor said at times he feels like running away.
He said he would accept defeat if he loses the 2019 governorship election, adding that he would be in a hurry to pack out of the government house.
The governor said that the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) is committed to the peaceful conduct of the general election.
“Let me first speak as the governorship candidate of the APC. Our party is committed to peace and peaceful elections. The political parties that merged into the APC were victims of rigged elections and the consequential violence that came with it,” he said.
“It is the rigging of elections that leads to violence. It was the massive rigging of the elections in 2011 that led yo the wide spread violence at that time and Kaduna state alone, lost over 800 lives.
“As the candidate of the APC, I am saying here and now that I am in a hurry to park out of the government house if the people do not vote for me.
“I will be the first to concede and I want to tell all that want to be governor that it is not an easy job… I want to run away.
