‘El-Rufai not on medical treatment abroad’


Nasir El-Rufai

The Kaduna State government has debunked speculations that Governor Nasir El-Rufai is ill and receiving treatment abroad.

Since three weeks that the governor has been out of the state, there had been rumour that he was flown out for medical attention abroad.

But Government House sources debunked the claim yesterday, saying “Governor El-Rufai is hale and hearty, and is overseas receiving lectures on his doctoral degree programme.

He would soon be back to the state.”

The source, who pleaded anonymity told journalists that “El-Rufai has started receiving lectures as a part time student of Philosophy of Doctorate degree (PhD) in Governance and Policy Analysis at United Nations University, Merit, Netherlands.”

    A few years back, when the EFCC had an arrest warrant out for him, he went for another Doctoral degree in Harvard.
    I wonder who is after him now.

    Hale and Hearty is the wrong phrase to use in this media work. It has a meaning in Nigeria.
