Governor Nasir Ahmad El-Rufai on Wednesday appealed to citizens not to respond to the treatment meted on him by demonstrators in Kafanchan, Jema’a LGA on Tuesday.
The Governor and his entourage were pelted with stones and some of the vehicles broken after addressing some demonstrators immediately after he chaired Kaduna State Security Council meeting in the area.
The official residence of the local government chairman, Dr.Bege Katuka was also burnt.
The governor’s spokesman, Samuel Aruwan, disclosed in an official statement that Malam Nasir El-Rufai considers the unfortunate events as part of the burdens of leadership.
He added that the Governor is of the view that there must be no reaction to the incident other than a continued commitment to restore peace and harmony.
The statement quoted the Governor as saying that “in the name of God, I am begging you. No one should take the law into his or her hand over what happened in Kafanchan.
Although it is unfortunate, but we must rise above induced prejudice and hatred. We must defeat hate with patience, love and dedication to duty and not eye for an eye.
By the special grace of God, overcome these forces of darkness who are dividing our citizens using religion, ethnicity and politics.”
