The Kaduna state government has described as false, the news, that the governor of Kaduna State, Mallam Nasir El-Rufai had been involved in a ghastly motor accident.
The news of the governor’s involvement in a motor accident has been trending on social media for hours before the Kaduna State government refuted it.
Twitter user wrote: “Elrufai in a ghastly accident, his driver said to have died on the spot. No one knows the condition of the Kaduna Governor. Please pray for him no matter the differences we have politically.”
A source close to the Kaduna State government told Sahara Reporters thus: “It’s not true,”
In a related development, governor El-Rufai, while describing the rumour as “bigotry-driven” by the People’s Democratic Party, played it down.
In a post on his official Facebook page, El-Rufai vowed to remain PDP’s permanent nightmare.
He wrote: “UPDATE: I woke up after a rare 8-hour bout of deep sleep to learn that some bigotry-driven, PDP-affiliated fake news platform has declared my driver dead and my humble self in coma. Both claims are false.
“I thank them for reducing the days in their lives and adding them to mine. I remain their permanent nightmare and not about to disappear from their wretched and corrupt lives any time soon by the Grace of Almighty Allah, until they are permanently retired and buried. – Nasir @elrufai.”
