The Kaduna State Governor, Nasir El-Rufai, says former President Goodluck Jonathan almost put him in prison because he thought he was a threat to his second term ambition.
El-Rufai, in an interview with newsmen, said although Jonathan was his very close friend from when he was the deputy governor of Bayelsa State, he persecuted him because he believed those who told him that he was a threat.
The governor said his persecution started in 2006 when he was in charge at the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja.
He maintained that no one could intimidate or blackmail him into doing what he would not do unless they offered superior logic.
On the insecurity in Kaduna State, he said the government was working hard, and using the carrot and stick approach to gradually solve the problem.
