Kaduna Not Small Like Lagos, Can Feed Igbos In All South-East States - Gov El-Rufai

Governor El-Rufai stated this while speaking with the State House correspondents on Tuesday after a closed-door meeting with President Muhammadu Buhari.

According to him, despite Kaduna’s worsening insecurity, the state continued to attract investments even though it could have been better.

He said, “Kaduna State is a huge state. We have 46,000 square kilometers. I joke with my colleagues from the southeast, Kaduna state alone can feed the five states of the southeast two and half times. It’s a huge state. So, the fact that there is insecurity in one part does not mean there’s insecurity everywhere. It’s not Lagos, it’s not a small place at all.

“Yes, we’ve had investment summit and they have been very successful. In the last five years, we have attracted nearly $3billion in investments in spite of all these stories about insecurity because investors know that large parts of Kaduna state are quite safe, they are safe as anything.”

KanyiDaily recalls that Governor El-Rufai also revealed President Buhari will spend at least two days in Kaduna in January to commission projects in Kafanchan, Kaduna and Zaria.
