Kaduna State Governor ,Malam El-Rufai arrived Sir Kashim Ibrahim Government House on Friday evening to a heroes welcome by mammoth crowd of cabinet members, party members ,supporters and friends after it was widely rumoured that he was involved in a ghastly motor accident that claimed life of his driver .
Little wonder, when he arrived the gate of Government House ,there were echoes of “Sai Malam ,Sai Mai Rusau and Murus and chanting of songs from women who besieged the gate to have a glimpse of him.
Addressing the guest after settling down for the welcome reception hosted by his wife Hajiya Hadiza Isma El-Rufai, the Governor in his brief remark said the rumours are unfounded and handiwork of enemies of progress .
El-Rufai’s physical and public appearance at the reception certainly will stop the rumours spreading like wild bush fire.
