The Governor of Kaduna State, Nasir El-Rufai, has warned that Officials of the United States of America, USA, United Kingdom, UK, European Union, EU, and any other foreign country, that try to interfere in the affairs of Nigeria, will “go back to their countries in body bags”.
El-Rufai handed out this threat on Tuesday Live, a late night programme on NTA, anchored by Cyril Stober.
He said that the foreign countries have no right to lecture Nigerians on how to run their country.
He warned the foreign countries, to steer clear of the internal affairs of Nigeria, noting that, if a crisis breaks out in the country, they would not partake of it.
El-Rufai said: “As Nigerians, we must understand that these guys can sit pretty in their country and say things, but when the crisis breaks, we are here. We are the victims, our wives and children are the victims; and we must rise up and unite, and say that no to violence in this country.”
The Governor added: “Those that are calling for everyone to come and intervene in Nigeria, we are waiting for the person that will come and intervene. They will go back in body bags. Because nobody will come to Nigeria and tell us how to run our country. We have got that independence, and we are trying to run our country as decently as possible, and we know the history of those countries that are trying to teach us these things; we have read their history. We also know that in their stages of development, they went through these challenges.
“So, please, let us work together; let us advise one another, but do not lecture us.”
