Governor Nasir El Rufai of Kaduna state has expressed empathy towards President Muhammadu Buhari for inheriting troubled governments with bad economies.
“When we sit down with President Buhari these days, I pity him. I pity him because he has always become President anytime Nigeria is in trouble,” he said on Sunday at the Latter Rain Assembly in Lagos state.
“First, it was after the NPN (National Party of Nigeria) government had almost grounded the economy (in 1984) and now, after a massive looting of the nation’s treasury; and he has to lead the team to fix it.
“But we are working round the clock to fix these problems. With your prayers and the cooperation of Nigerians, we shall surmount these problems.”
