Nasir El-Rufai

The governorship candidate of the All Progressives Congress, APC, in Kaduna State, Nasir El-Rufai, on Saturday promised social justice if elected.

Samuel Aruwan, spokesperson of the APC Kaduna State Campaign Council, disclosed this in a statement made available to journalists on Sunday in Kaduna. 

Mr. El-Rufai also promised to unite residents of the state irrespective of religion, ethnicity and political affiliations. 

Speaking during a town hall meeting in Kaduna with hundreds of persons with disabilities, Mr. El-Rufai said: “Let me say it from the main framework of social justice, we are all one and created by God for his own reason. Social justice is justice in terms of the distribution of wealth, opportunities, and privileges within a society. Social justice assigns rights and duties in the institutions of society, which enables people to receive the basic benefits and burdens of cooperation. 

“The relevant institutions can include education, health care, social security, labour rights, as well as a broader system of public services, progressive taxation and regulation of markets, to ensure fair distribution of wealth, equal opportunity, equality of outcome, and no gross social injustice.

“And so, I wish to submit here that if elected there will be real social justice in ensuring unity, development and social security for all.”

The candidate concluded that the APC led government would ensure viable security in the state and also adequate social amenities.

Mr. El-Rufai is the main challenger to Governor Ramalan Yero of the Peoples Democratic Party.
