The governor of Kaduna State, Nasir El Rufai, has said that he is ready to “move on to other things” if he loses at the forthcoming governorship polls in the state..
According to him, he was not desperate to be re-elected as governor of Kaduna state.
The governor disclosed this, Wednesday, in Kaduna at a United Nations High level Dialogue Forum on Peaceful elections in Kaduna state.
Governor El Rufai, who delivered a keynote address at the one-day event, said politicians in the state must commit to a conduct of a violence-free and fair election.
“If all of us do our bit, Nigeria’s democracy will only get stronger. This biggest risk now is pre-election violence. As a government, our most important job is to govern the state. If I am re-elected, we will do our best; if we are not re-elected, we move on with our lives. We are not desperate,” he said.
The governor said Kaduna has become the centre of attraction of many organisations.
Meanwhile, the governorship candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party in Kaduna state, Isa Ashiru, has charged his supporters to resist any intimidation by the ruling party and protect their voters during the forthcoming elections..
According to him, “Don’t be intimidated; let your spirit be high; victory is at hand because, even our rivals can see and feel it loud and hard.”
