Fake news: I was not involved in any accident – El-Rufai
Kaduna State Governor Malam Nasir El-Rufai has debunked rumours that he was involved in car crash.
He reacted through his verified Twitter handle (@elrufai) yesterday.
He said “I woke up after a rare 8-hour bout of deep sleep to learn that some bigotry-driven, PDP- affiliated fake news platform has declared my driver dead and my humble self in coma.
“Both claims are false. I thank them for reducing the days in their lives and adding them to mine. I remain their permanent nightmare and not about to disappear from their wretched and corrupt lives any time soon by the Grace of Almighty Allah, until they are permanently retired and buried.”
Earlier yesterday, the social media was awash with the rumour that the governor’s convoy was involved in a fatal crash while on its way back from Kano and that he was in a critical condition.
Checks by our correspondent in Kaduna also revealed that the governor did not travel to Kano, but is currently out of the country.
An aide of the governor, Muyiwa Adekeye, also dismissed the rumour on his verified Twitter handle @MuyiwaAdekeye, saying “The hatred that moves people to peddle lies, concoct rumours of accidents and try to pass off their ill-will as God’s doing is a burden on those who have permitted reason to exit their minds and have given their hearts to a constricting narrowness.
