From: Femi Oyelola, Kaduna
The Senior Special Adviser Media and Communication to Governor Nasir El Rufai Muyiwa Adekeye has refuted the allegation of the involvement of his principal in a vital road accident along Kano- Kaduna Express Way.
According to him, contrary to rumours making the rounds, Kaduna State Governor is not involved in any road accident.
Adekeye expressed this in a tweet on his official handle, @MuyiwaAdekeye at about 2:11pm yesterday.
“While Malam Nasir @elrufai was at post-election reception in Kaduna on Sunday night, some liars placed him in Kano.
‘Now they are spreading takes that he was involved in a fatal accident.
“Hatred is not political strategy!”, he said.
It would be recalled that from Wednesday night, rumours were rife in hush tones that Governor el-Rufai was involved in an accident.
The rumours added that the Driver to the Governor died on the spot while the Governor was said to be in critical condition.
“The hatred that moves people to peddle lies, concoct rumours of accidents and try to pass off their ill-will as God’s doing is a burden on those who have permitted reason to exit their minds and have given their hearts to a constricting narrowness.”
Later in the day Governor El-Rufai himself reacted to the reports of his alleged involvement in a ghastly motor accident.
El-Rufai described the news as “bigotry-driven” propagated by the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP.
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.”
