WaffiTV:The Kaduna State Governor, Nasir El-Rufai, has denied calling for savagery in his remarks about foreign interference.
In a statement by the Senior Special Assistant to the Governor on Media and Publicity, Samuel Aruwan, El-Rufai clarified that his remark was not a call for savagery but instead an incredible defense of sovereignty.
He further clarified that he is standing solidly against those attempting to separate Nigerians on ethnic and religious lines, and is against brutality yet immovably dedicated to harmony and concordance.
The statement read to a limited extent, “He went to bat for Nigeria’s pride in the wake of the individuals who might traduce their nation and diminish it to the status of a province in their vain mission for power.
“The video of his comments is in circulation. Any fair-minded person with modest familiarity with the English language and unimpaired comprehension can understand it. It does not contain any call for violence.
“It is a powerful defense of sovereignty. Are some sections of our political class implying that they will acquiesce in or collaborate with foreign intervention in our country?
“Non-interference in the affairs of other countries is a basic principle of international law. Threatening to intervene in another country implies the use of force. Those who are basing their electoral calculations on foreign intervention need to be discouraged. Only the lawful votes of the Nigerian people should make or unmake governments”.
Governor El-Rufai in an interview on NTA’s Tuesday Live had said that the individuals who endeavor to meddle in the inside undertakings of the nation would come back to their nations in body bags.
As indicated by Aruwan, such statements are what one ought to hope to get notification from a patriot.
