2019 Election: My Decision Has Nothing To Do With Religion- El Rufai

The Governor of Kaduna State, Nasir El Rufai has come out to react to claims that his decision for choosing a Muslim running mate has nothing to do with religion, while speaking at a town hall meeting with a group of pastors under the auspices of ‘Pastors United For Change Association’ held in Kaduna yesterday February 9th, he said; “In my life, I have never worked with people based on religious and ethnic consideration. Don’t look at what people said but what I have done in the past. Go through my records and see what I have done. On the issue of my running mate, we are encouraging women participation in politics. She is a competent woman. “Late Prof. Andrew Nok, our late Commissioner for Education, brought Hadiza Balarabe when we were looking for someone that can revive our primary health in the state and she performed excellently well. I don’t know her before. Her choice as a running mate has nothing to do with religion‎. I am confident that my running mate will run the state effectively and will be fair to all in the state even if I am not around”. Photo Credit: Getty
