KADUNA State Governor, Mallam Nasir el-Rufai, has described the Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, as an experienced information manager, a dogged fighter and a dedicated nationalist who is committed to the advancement of Nigeria’s interests.

Speaking during a courtesy visit to the minister in his office in Abuja, El-Rufai said he and Alhaji Mohammed struggled together in the All Progressives Congress (APC), during which ‘’he (the minister) was abducted once, just like I was arrested twice by the same people.’’

The governor said he came to wish the Minister well and to let him know that the thoughts and prayers of the people of Kaduna State are with him.

He said Nigerians should give maximum support to President Muhammadu Buhari and his team in their quest to get Nigeria out of the difficult situation in which it had been consigned by the previous administration.

In his response, the minister, who said he was ‘excited’ at the visit, called El-Rufai ‘’one of our brightest and most courageous.’’

He expressed confidence in the ability of the governor to make Kaduna State one of the best states in the country.
