EL-RUFAI: I Lost Pleasurable Moments Because I Was Overwhelmed With Public Affairs

The immediate past governor of Kaduna State, Nasir El-Rufai has disclosed that he missed fun moments when he was involved in public affairs.

Recall that El-Rufai reportedly left the country after the Senate refused to confirm his ministerial nomination.

Speaking via Twitter on Tuesday morning, the former governor encouraged the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) to avoid war with the Niger Republic, insisting that the relationship between Nigeria and the embattled country can be compared to that of brothers.

Speaking further, El-Rufai lamented that he has lost sight of pleasurable times during his last ten years in public office.

He, however, indicated that he plans to catch up on lost time.

According to him:

“As ECOWAS beats the drums of war, I recall the 1970s rock classic by Dire Straits – ‘Brothers in Arms’, because a war within our subregion is a war between brothers. Indeed, the people of Niger Republic are one and the same with those living in Northern Nigeria. Let us bend therefore over backwards to avoid this civil war between brothers.

“And so for this bright Tuesday, please enjoy this classic and reflect on the equally timeless lyrics. Music is something to enjoy, but being so overwhelmed with public affairs in the last 10 years, I have lost valuable pleasurable moments. Time to catch up on lost time. Enjoy‼ Life is too short not too‼”
