El-Rufai: I’m not afraid of losing… it’s my staff who are jittery



Nasir el-Rufai, governor of Kaduna state, says he is not afraid of losing his reelection bid.

The governor said this while waiting to  cast his ballot at polling unit 024, Runka/Marnona, Angwan Sarki, Kaduna.

El-Rufai said since President Muhammadu Buhari won his reelection two weeks ago, he would get a job if the poll did not go his way but the same can not be said of those working with him.

He pointed out that he was joking.

“I am not under any tension since President Muhammadu Buhari has won. Even if I loose , I already have a job,” he said.

“It is my staff that are jittery. I always share this joke.”

El-rufai also commended INEC and security agencies for their efforts. He said the turn out of voters was impressive.

He noted that due to intimidation during the last election in some part of the state, government beefed up security in those areas.

He urged voters to come out and cast their vote without fear.

“Voters’ turn out is impressive. There are more voters compared to the last election. I am sure the turn out will be more and the elections peaceful,”he said.
