Reacting, to the statement by the Governor, Fani-Kayode commended El-Rufai for refusing to negotiate with the bandits.
Taking to Twitter, Fani-Kayode, a PDP chieftain wrote: “Yesterday El-Rufai did two things which gladdened my heart. Firstly he took responsibility and apologized for failing to protect those that were killed by Fulani herdsmen on Sunday.
“Secondly he said that he would NOT negotiate with terrorists but rather send them to their maker. Kudos!
