Kaduna State Governor El-Rufai was captured on video playing the duties of a traffic officer on an expressway, and he was good at it. Check out the video!

Following a traffic gridlock on the Kaduna-Zaria Expressway, Kaduna State Governor Nasir El-Rufai, who was on the road at the time, rolled up his sleeves and resumed duty as a traffic officer.


The governor got down from his vehicle and directed motorists on how to move

As captured in a video currently making rounds online, the Executive Governor alighted from his car to direct motorists on how to move in order to create free vehicle movements. Impressed by the governor’s actions, a small crowd is seen cheering him up for the exemplary deed.

Going by our findings, this is not the first time the former Minister of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) Abuja is seen controlling traffic. A similar incident occurred in 2018 in the Gonin Gora area of Kaduna State.

The action of the governor is very commendable. He could have sat down in his vehicle while his convoy cleared the way for him to pass. But he chose to get down and control the traffic himself.
