Governor Nasir El-Rufai of Kaduna State has stated that his successor would do more demolition of houses than him.
The governor told some residents of the state who were allegedly calling him a demolisher and praying for his tenure to end soon, not to rejoice yet saying the next governor would do more for the development of the state.
El-Rufai made the remark on Friday when he featured on a radio programme in the state capital.
According to El-Rufai, some residents who understand their motives, now appreciate the urban development being executed across the state by his administration.
He alleged that some of his critics attacked him for not sharing money to them, stressing that developing the state was worth more than sharing of money.
“When we started working on school construction they said we are not providing roads now we are working on roads they said we are not empowering people.
“If sharing money at night is what they mean by empowering people, they should keep insulting us.
“The masses who we are working for appreciate what we are doing for them.
“You know the election is approaching and they see me as a demolisher “Mai rusau” so they think that maybe the next person that will come after me will not demolish but he will demolish more than I do, God willing,” he said.
