Few days after taking part in Edo campaigns, El-Rufai says he can’t visit Southern Kaduna because of COVID-19

Governor Nasir El-Rufai on Sunday evening said he had not visited conflict areas in Southern Kaduna because of the COVID-19 restrictions.

Appearing on a Channels TV programme, the governor responded to a question about why he had not visited the affected areas.

The governor also said he did not necessarily have to visit the areas as there were those assigned the responsibility to supervise efforts geared towards bringing peace to the area.

The governor’s response may startle some who would remember seeing him in Edo for campaigns only a few days ago.

In the same interview, the governor also came out hard against leaders of southern Kaduna whom he accused of culpability in the crisis, tagging them “criminals”.
