The governor of Kaduna state Nasir El-Rufai, has advised Nigerians not to take all the words that come from the senate if they don’t want to develop mental problems.
Governor El-Rufai was reacting to the motion which labelled connecting the main highway to his state from the capital of Abuja as the ‘most dangerous road in Africa’.
Nasir said the categorisation was a mere exaggeration, not grounded in facts.
“If you believe everything that comes out of Nigeria’s Senate you will have serious mental health problems”, the governor told State House correspondents in Abuja on Monday.
“There are things that are said there that are just for the gallery, for the media. I don’t know what statistics that were used to determine that the Abuja-Kaduna road is the most dangerous road anywhere – I like fact; I like using figures, I wish the people that said that would produce figures.
“I’m saying that no matter what anybody said last week, I’m assuring Nigerians that the Abuja–Kaduna road is quite safe now and will be so following the measures put in place by the various security agencies.
El-Rufai stated the fact that he isn’t guranteeing 100% safety while playing on the road but maintained that God is the only one who can gurantee safety.
