Nasir El-Rufai Nasir El-Rufai

Governor Nasir El-Rufai of Kaduna State has given reasons why governors of the All Progressives Congress, APC, from the North decided to support the party’s flag bearer, Bola Tinubu.

El-Rufai explained that Northern APC governors decided to support Tinubu to ensure unity, fairness, and justice in Nigeria.

He disclosed this during a town hall meeting with some Northern Christian groups in Kaduna.

El-Rufai said the Northern governors settled for Tinubu because of his track record when he was the Governor of Lagos State.

According to El-Rufai: “In the spirit of unity, fairness and justice in the country, after President Buhari’s tenure, it is fair that the Presidency should go to the South.

“And we converged in Katsina Lodge before Governor Aminu Bello Masari said that among all the presidential candidates, we should go for Ahmed Tinubu because of his track records while he was governor of Lagos.”
