Nigeria: I Have Never Slapped Anyone In My Life - El-Rufai

Recently, the news media was awash with the news of some skirmish between El-rufai, governor of Jaduna state and his deputy. The news was that El-rufai slapped his deputy during an argument which resulted in the deputy retaliating later during their executive meeting. El-rufai has now denied this news. According to him, he has never slapped anyone in his life.

While answering questions bothering on a lot of controversial issues he and the Kaduna state government is currently embroiled in, El-rufai said “I have known Architect Bala Bantex since 1976 in our days at the Ahmadu Bello University and we have never even argued once, because to a large extent we think and act alike. I think the problem that we are facing is that some people think that we are getting along too well in a state where deputy governors are supposed to be spare tyres. They don’t chair Executive Council meetings, don’t act when the governor is absent. We have been informed that no deputy governor has ever chaired an executive meeting. Bantex and I operate as partners and some people don’t like it. They want to create division between us and you know today with the internet you can manufacture any story and it can get traction because people like this kind of thing. They once said I insulted the vice president in a meeting and he walked out of that meeting. So these kinds of rumours are meant to create divisions between people.”
He went on to say “I had a story that we had an argument concerning the retrenchment of the state workers. Bantex  and I have never discussed  the retrenchment of workers in Kaduna State. The people that wrote the story are also not quite intelligent because if I was the one to write the story I would say governor and deputy governor slapped each other in the governor’s office. I think that people are just mischievous and I don’t know what their motives are but we leave everything to God, but I want to assure you that Architect Bantex and I have never had an argument since 1976. And I have never slapped anyone in my life. I am not a physical person. I fight with words.”
