Naija News understands that El-Rufai stated this on Tuesday during the inauguration of his campaign committee in Kaduna.
According to the Kaduna Governor, the PDP brought these people to show that they have supporters and “because Sokoto indigenes refused to attend the rally.”
He, however, vowed that his governing party, the All Progressives Congress (APC), will not allow looters and criminals return to power in 2019.
“Thieves have ganged up against President Muhammadu Buhari. Yesterday (Monday) they (PDP) went to Sokoto for a rally and brought in people from Niger Republic.
“This was to show that they have crowd because Sokoto people refused to attend.
“Our people should be assured that the very day Buhari will come to Kaduna, all our people that will receive him will be Kaduna indigenes and not people from Niger.
“We will fight for every vote and persuade our people that you will only secure victory for the party you support when you vote on election day,” he said.
They rent theirs from Niger because of proximity ;You can rent yours from Sudan because of affinity.
