The Governor of Kaduna State, Nasir El-Rufai, speaking on Oath TV on Friday evening, the Governor said he had not asked any Nigerian to kill any foreigner they see during elections.
This was in an attempt to clarify a recent statement where he was said to have threatened foreign observers ahead of 2019 presidential election.
DAILY POST reported that Governor El-Rufai, in an interview on NTA during the week, had threatened that those who intervene in the forthcoming general elections will “go back in body bags.”
According to him, “The government of Nigeria must invite observers. But if we notice, there is a coordinated plan to delegitmize the election; to already declare the election illegitimate even before they were conducted.
“And it has the support of Nigerian collaborators and foreign interest. And we must speak out.
“We must speak out. And that is what is appearing to be the way the PDP is hobnobbing with some of the foreign interests here, we have to make the observation.
“They are here to observe. They are not here to intervene. They are not here to lay the foundations for crisis in Nigeria. Which is what the PDP are preparing for as their last ultimate option and we are aware of it” he said.
He opined that “This is the essence of my statement and I don’t want anyone to confuse what i said to mean that Nigerians will kill any foreigner they see.”
