Reacting to VP Osinbajo’s claim that President Buhari did not know of the prosecution of the CJN until Saturday January 12th, Governor El-Rufai replied
”Why should he know about it? Let us stop this personalizing of institutions. Why should the president know about the prosecution of anyone? Wouldn’t you be worried if the President knows about every prosecution. Institutions should be allowed to work. I am the governor of Kaduna state. The constitution requires I declare my assets before being sworn in and the constitution stated it in very plain language.
Saying that the President doesn’t know is a compliment. It shows that he doesn’t interfere” he said
