Kaduna State governor, Nasir El-Rufai has said he was disappointed that some person in the Presidential villa leaked his memo to President Muhammadu Buhari.
El-Rufia said this in an interview with State House correspondents shortly after he joined Buhari for the Juma’at prayer at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.
The governor said those who published the memo revealed the persons who leaked it.
The governor said he would not hesitate to write another memo to the President if the need arises.
He said, “I am disappointed that a private communication to the highest office in the land can be leaked and it was leaked from the villa. I am told by those that published it, but this is a fact of life.
“We live in an age where anything you write or say can be leaked. It is ok, my intentions are clear, I have no ill motive but I wanted to communicate with the President what many Nigerians are talking about and what steps can be taken to improve governance of the country and move the country forward.
“That was my motive and if tomorrow, like I said, I see anything that the President needs to know I will discuss with him and I will articulate and put it into writing and on the record for him to have a reminder document to work on.
“I have no regrets and I have no apologies.”
