Governor Nasir el-Rufai of Kaduna State, has denied claims that he lost his life in a ghastly motor accident as peddled in some sections of the media.
The reports had generated widespread reactions with many believing the story as soon as they read it on the social media.
El-Rufai has now reacted to this report, stating that the rumour was peddled by his detractors, and that he would live longer than those who started the unfounded report.
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.”
