The Governor of Kaduna State, Nasir El-Rufai, has said that he has never stolen money from the state government and that he is ready to swear to prove he is telling the truth.

Challenging his predecessors, the governor said they should also come out to swear, if their hands are clean, as he threatened to expose them for pilfering the state treasury.

El-Rufai said this in an interview in Hausa monitored on a local television and radio station, where he explained that his philosophy in governance was not to steal, adding that he is aware that there would be a day of reckoning.

Stating that all loans secured to facilitate projects in the state during his administration were used only for the specified projects, El-Rufai said, “The people can see that we executed those projects with the loans we secured. We did not syphon the money to Dubai and buy houses, or go to Jabi road and build a mansion.
