The wife of governor Nasir El-Rufai of Kaduna State, Hadiza Isma, says it is unfortunate that the state has been divided along the religious line.
Addressing a news conference in Kaduna yesterday, the governor’s wife yesterday called on the people of the state to ignore hate campaign messages being circulated on the social media.
She said: “We know what happened in Rwanda, we hope we will not go that way. Everyone has a right to vote anybody he or she wants.
“We have been divided along religious line, which is unfortunate. Vote for whoever you think will deliver good governance in the state. We must disregard all hate messages going on in the social media.”
She congratulated President Muhammadu Buhari and other All Progressives Congress’ candidates in the last presidential and National Assembly polls and appealed to Kaduna women to re-elect her husband.
She said: “We want to thank the people of Kaduna state for coming out en masse and voted in the last presidential and National Assembly polls. I want to tell you that it is not yet over, the governorship and state House of Assembly elections is this Saturday, please women should come out and vote APC.
“We believe that if this government is voted back the people especially women will benefit more.This government is women friendly. We have 5 female commissioners out of 14 commissioners. We also have a woman as a running mate, state head of service is a woman. I want to call on my fellow women to come out and vote and there should be peace.”
