Over the past days, telephone calls from various individuals have jammed Kaduna State airwaves as rumours made the rounds that the state governor, Nasir El-rufai, was involved in a fatal accident in the early hours of Thursday.

The rumour had it that El-rufai’s driver died in the accident, while the governor himself sustained serious injury.

However, contrary to the rumours, Governor El-rufai is hale and hearty and was not involved in any form of accident.

El-rufai’s Senior Special Adviser on Media and Communication, Muyiwa Adekeye, confirmed that the governor is in good health in a tweet on his official handle.

Adekeye wrote, “While Malam Nasir @elrufai was at post-election reception in Kaduna on Sunday night, some liars placed him in Kano. Now they are spreading tales that he was involved in a fatal accident. Hatred is not a political strategy.

“The hatred that moves people to peddle lies, concort rumours of accident 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.”

Before now, rumours that the governor was involved in an accident were all over town; this people kept discussing in hush tones. However, Adekeye’s tweet has laid to rest all that.
