THE FIXATION OF NIGERIANS ON THE RELIGION OF POLITICAL HOLDERS IS PATHETIC_GOV EL-RUFAI.

Governor of Kaduna, Nasir el-Rufai, says the “fixation” of Nigerians on the religion of political office holders is “pathetic and sad”.
.
.
El-Rufai spoke on Friday in an interview with Channels Television. With the election of presidential candidates of political parties, there have been concerns about the religion of the candidates and their intended running mates.

He said, “I don’t look at people from the lens of Muslim-Muslim or Christian-Christian, some of my closest friends are Christians. It was Pastor Tunde Bakare, a pentecostal pastor, who took me to CPC, not President Muhammadu Buhari. I’m very close to Pastor Bakare. I’m very close to many Christians.
.
.
I don’t think the business of governance has to do with religion. I think we should look for the best person for the job. The person who will get the job done.
