Hadiza El-Rufai, wife of Kaduna State Governor, Nasir El-Rufai, says although she is married to a governor she is not part of the government.

Mrs El-Rufai stated this in a tweet on Thursday in reaction to criticisms over her silence on the reported Southern Kaduna killings.

She wrote:

“Did any of you see ‘First Lady’ in my bio? My TL is for language, humour and other light-hearted issues. I don’t tweet about serious matters like governance and politics. Though I’m married to a governor I’m not a part of government. I swore no oath.”

WITHIN NIGERIA recalls that the Kaduna First Lady, who celebrated 80k followership on Twitter was criticized for what was described as “lack of empathy” over the killings in the Kaduna community.

Several persons have been reported killed in remote villages in Southern Kaduna following attacks by armed men.

The government is yet to speak on the reported killings.
