The governor of Kaduna state, Nasir El-Rufai, has reportedly said he was not under any tension of defeat in the ongoing election, adding that he has another job waiting for him if he loses the election.
Fielding questions from newsmen shortly after casting his vote, Mr El-rufai said his members of staff are jittery but he is not under tension.
“I have no fears if I win or not because the president has already won his re-election. The worse thing that could happen is for me to lose the election. But since the president has already won his reelection bid, it means I already have a job in Abuja.
“Only my staff are jittery if I win or not and I usually share this joke with them. But the security in the state has improved because everything has been orderly and from the information I am getting, polling units opened early,” he said.
He said as a leader, it has become a norm for him to join the queue on election day like any other person.
“I always joined queue because it’s the right thing to do. I mixed with people all the time so it’s what I always tried to do,” he said.
