Governor Elrufai Issues Stern Warning To Clerics

by on March 7, 2016

Kaduna State Governor, Malam Nasir el-Rufai, at the weekend warned “blackmailers and those manipulating religion and ethnicity” in pursuing self­ish interests to stay off the new Kaduna State under his watch.
The governor’s spokes­person, Samuel Aruwan, disclosed this in a state­ment quoting the Gover­nor’s address at the 2016 Khituk Gwong held in Fadan Kagoma, Jema’a Lo­cal Government Area of the state.
On security, the gover­nor added that the present government reduced the frequency and levels of the senseless killings in South­ern Kaduna, intense cattle rustling in Birnin Gwari, Giwa, Chikun and other parts of the state.
el-Rufai said: “We have noticed that there are groups and persons that have in the past made a living by promoting preju­dice and specialising in incitement. They distort public discourse, corrupt­ing every issue, policy or appointment as an outlet to vent religious, ethnic and sectional viewpoints.”
“What we cannot allow is the continuation of such blackmail, the expectation that if you make yourself sufficiently obnoxious and incendiary the govern­ment will use public funds to settle you. That was the kind of environment the other party encouraged.
“People and parties with such mindsets are mis­taken, as the only settle­ment they are likely to get is with the law, which will definitely take its course against illegal and anti-social conduct.
