“l should spend most of my time with my family which I have not done in the last 10 years,” he said.

Speaking further, the governor said election was not a war but a competition that at the end of it will have a winner.

El-Rufai said: “When politicians give weapons and drugs to young people for electoral purposes, then what do you do with them after you win? They become monsters that will be difficult to deal with.

“We have no thugs in the APC, all those that campaign with us, we try to empower and give them employment so that they can be off the streets.

“If you don’t find a job for this people, they are the one who became soldiers for Boko-Haram, kidnappers and involved themselves in other criminal activities.”
