El-Rufai Declares Support For Bola Tinubu’s Presidential Ambition




Governor Nasir El-Rufai of Kaduna State has openly endorsed the Presidential ambition of the national leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Tinubu.

Naija News reports that the Kaduna governor openly backed Tinubu’s ambition at the Murtala Square in Kaduna on Thursday.

It was gathered that Tinubu alongside the former Governor of Borno State, Kashim Shettima, former EFCC boss, Nuhu Ribadu and other dignitaries were in the state to seek the support delegates ahead of the ruling party’s primaries.

Shetimma had earlier assured the delegates that the Kaduna State Governor, Malam Nasir El-Rufai was “solidly by their side,” according to Daily Trust.

However, while speaking, El-Rufai said he would need the support of delegates from Kaduna State before taking a decision.

“I want to correct Kashim Shettima because he said the governor is fully with them,” El-Rufai said.

The governor added that he cannot fully back Tinubu unless the delegates from the state agree.

“Before we confirm what Kashim Shetima said here, I want to confirm from our statutory delegates are you with Asiwaju?” El-Rufai asked, to which the delegates stood in unison, shouting yes.

Your Excellency, I do what they tell me, they are my bosses. This is how APC in Kaduna works,” he said while addressing Tinubu.
