I’ll Keep Sacking Workers, Demolishing Illegal Structures Till The 11th Hour–El-Rufai

The governor of Kaduna State, Nasir El-Rufai, has vowed to keep ejecting "bad people" from positions of authority and tearing down illegal buildings until the very last minute.


This was said by the governor, who is still in office for another seven days, at the publication of a book about his legacy.


The author of the book "Putting The People First" is Mr. Emmanuel Ado, a seasoned journalist and public commentator.


He said, “Any bad thing we find, we will remove so that the next governor does not need to do it again. Watch out till the eleventh hour when we shall quit office. We will continue to sack bad people and remove bad things.”


The governor made this statement the day after his government declared nine homes owned by the state's former governor Ahmed Makarfi to be demolishable and removed their right to residence.


Governor Nyesom Wike characterized his Kaduna counterpart as an outspoken and fearless Nigerian while speaking at the occasion.


Wike claimed that it was difficult to find people in the nation who could speak truth to authority.


Wike said, “El-Rufai, for me, is one leader whose greatness defies categorisation. Governor el-Rufai embodies character, commitment and hard work. He is bold, courageous and daring with a strong spirit of justice, equity and fairness.


“He is socio-politically assertive and unbending in his loyalty to principles. Governor el-Rufai is never known to be a sycophant. I could remember his controversial letter to President Muhammadu Buhari, especially the one written in March 2017, that challenged him to deliver the people’s expectations to avoid falling on the wrong side of history.


“I don’t know how many governors will have the courage to write a sitting president of his party to say, ‘look, do the right thing’ being the expectations of the people so that you will not be on the wrong side of history.


“It takes men of courage and character. No sycophantic person can do it.”


At the ceremony, Wike gave a donation of N20 million, while Bola Tinubu, the president-elect, gave the same amount through Kashim Imam, the former chairman of the Tertiary Education Trust Fund (TETFUND).
