Ethnic and religious politics is affecting Nigeria - Governor Nasir El-Rufai

Governor Nasir El-Rufai who spoke on a Hausa programme, ‘Hannu Dayawa’ on the Federal Radio Corporation of Nigeria, Kaduna, on Saturday, stated that ethnic and religious politics is affecting Nigeria.

According to the Kaduna State Governor, his choice of  Dr. Hadiza Balarabe as his running mate for the March 2nd governorship poll was “influenced by considerations of competence, developing the state and pulling the talents of the women”.

Governor Nasir El-Rufai who further maintained that people in their businesses, travels and daily lives, look for those who could  give them results, not the faith of the person, added that “our action was not predicated on religion or  ethnicity but getting a deputy governor that suits our quest for a better Kaduna State.”

“You are sick and in dire need of life. When you are rushed to hospital, what do you need? Life or  the religion of the doctor? Life is what you need and you will not waste time on the religion and the ethnic background  of the doctor.

When you are flying, do you care about the religion or  the ethnic background  of the pilot or a safe flight? It’s  the same thing with business and investment. You hire those who can make your investment profitable” he said.
