Nasir el-Rufai, governor of Kaduna state, has expressed his disappointment in individuals that allegedly leaked his 30-page memo to President Muhammadu Buhari.
El-Rufai made this known on Friday, April 14, 2017 after attending Jumat service with the president in Abuja.
He said: “I am disappointed that a private communication to the highest office in the land can be leaked and it was leaked from the villa.”
The governor also blamed some of the president’s aides saying some people around the President leaked the memo he wrote to Buhari back in September 2016.
“This is a fact. I was told by those who published it… we live in an age where anything you write or say can be leaked. I have no ill motive but I wanted to communicate with the president what many Nigerians are talking about and what steps can be taken to improve governance of the country and move the country forward,” he said further.
After the memo was leaked, El-Rufai said he had no regrets about what he wrote, and that he felt less concerned if anyone was upset about the letter.
“That was my motive and if tomorrow, like I said, I see anything that the president needs to know I will discuss with him and I will articulate and put it into writing and on the record for him to have a reminder document to work on.”
In the 30-page document, el-Rufai noted that the President Buhari led government and the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) were performing below expectations.
