Kaduna State Governor-elect, Nasir El-Rufai has said that he has no plans of sharing government funds after his inauguration.

El-Rufai stated further that his government would focus on using the state’s resources for the progress and development of Kaduna and its residents.

The governor-elect made the statement on Saturday, May 16, 2015, at a reception organised for him by the Kaduna Peoples Association at Arewa House.

El-Rufai also said at a later prayer session organized by the All Progressives Congress (APC) Yoruba Political Forum in the state that what he needs is sympathy and prayers not congratulations.

“When people call to congratulate me or come to congratulate me and General Buhari, I always tell them, thank you, but what we need is your sympathy and prayers,” the governor-elect said.

“This is because, myself and Buhari are taking over bankrupt governments; it is so bad that the Jonathan administration is finding it difficult to pay salaries. In fact, they had to obtain loan to pay salaries,” El-Rufai added.

“In the case of Kaduna State, the Peoples Democratic Party’s government has incurred debt to the tune of over N90bn and this may get to N100bn before May 29. Therefore, what you have done is exactly what we need to succeed,” the governor-elect said.

El-Rufai will take over from incumbent governor, Ramalan Yero on Friday, May 29, 2015.
