We copied Aregbesola’s programme and I’m shameless about it-El-Rufai.
The governor of Kaduna state, El-Rufai says he copied the social programmes implemented by Rauf Aregbesola as osun state governor in his state. Speaking on Saturday during Aregbesola’s 63rd anniversary the kaduna governor said the programmes struck him and helped him connect with Aregbesola.
El-Rufai also said Aregbesola did many innovative things in Osun state and the results are clear,he also revealed that by the time he was elected as Kaduna state governor he sent a team to osun state to look at some of these policies and adjust them for implementation in Kaduna state.
Futhermore, he said if something works he is shameless in copying it,he said he likes copying whatever works because he doesn’t think you need to be proud to copy good work.
El-Rufai however blamed the drop in crude oil prices for the disruption In the programme implementation in osun.
He could not stop the programme so he kept borrowing to fund them hoping that something positive will happen with oil prices, the legacy of domestic debt that he left behind is as a result of funding social programmes to reduce poverty and inequality among the citizens of the state which have been successful but was disturbed.
