EL Rufai’s controversial remark: ‘you can go climb Kufena Mountain and fall.’

Kaduna State Governor, Malam Nasir El-Rufai on Saturday advised those aggrieved over political appointments by his administration to embark on a suicide mission.

El-Rufai lost his temper during the question and answer session at the 4th town hall meeting with stakeholders from Kaduna Central zone.

“If you are not happy with appointments made, you can go and climb Kufena Mountain and fall.
“It was what you voted that you got because we are aware that there are people who did not vote for us, in fact they worked against us.

“But now they claim to be APC members and loyal to the party. We know such people. And so there is no way they would expect anything from us.

“You didn’t vote us but you want appointments. What you will get is zero. It is politics and in whatever we do there is politics,” he said.

El-Rufai also used the opportunity to debunk allegation making rounds in the state that he nominated Hajia Zainab Shamsudeen for President Buhari’s ministerial list, saying that he had no hand in her nomination.
