I Will Not Distribute Rice Grains This Ramadan – El Rufai

Must read

Kaduna State Governor, Malam Nasir El-Rufa’i, has given an ordered to stop free distribution of grains during fasting in the month of Ramadan.

The Governor said on Friday, June 19, 2015 that his administration would not continue with what he described as the “People’s Democratic Party’s culture” of sharing state’s resources.

“I have been made to understand that this Ramadan period, we are supposed to have started sharing rice, milk and sugar, but we will not do that,” El-Rufa’i said at the Government House.

He made this declaration when the executive members of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) and Jama’atu Nasril Islam (JNI) paid him a visit him.

He explained that he took the decision to stop the annual tradition of distributing the products because he does not want government to be involved in religious affairs, more so, according to him, “as the government is broke.

“If his government continues in such direction, the administration will only exist to pay salaries and allowances.

“This beautiful office complex in which we are cost the government about N10 billion.

“The Deputy Governor and I would not have built this when there are many masses-oriented projects yet to be executed, but it has been built, we have to use.’’

“So, we solicit your prayers to be able to stabilise the situation and we hope that things will improve.”
