El-Rufai who spoke through Mr Muyiwa Adekeye, his Special Adviser on Media and communication he was neither involved in an accident, nor in a coma.
As from Wednesday night, rumours were rife in hush tones that Governor el-Rufai was involved in an accident.
The rumours however, became louder on Thursday, as it was being carried that the Governor was injured, while his driver died instantly.
Adekeye via his twitter handle described the rumour of the governor’s involvment in an accident as an act of hatred, which according to him moved people to peddle lies.
According to him: “It is hatred that moves people to peddle lies, concoct rumours of accidents and try to pass off their ill-will as God’s doing. It is a burden on those who have permitted reason to exit their minds and have given their hearts to a constructing narrowness.”
