A former Head of State, Muhammadu Buhari, has endorsed the governorship aspiration of one-time Minister of the Federal Capital Territory, FCT, Nasir El-Rufai, in Kaduna State on the platform of the All Progressives Congress, APC.
Mr. Buhari, himself a presidential aspirant on the party’s ticket, disclosed in Kaduna on Monday, during Mr. El-Rufai’s formal declaration to run for governor, that he asked the former minister to for the position, despite his (El-Rufai) total devotion to working for him.
He expressed confidence that the governorship aspirant would provide good leadership for the state.
“You are not doing El-Rufai a favour by voting for him, you are doing yourselves a favour,” Mr. Buhari told the teeming crowd of supporters that witnessed the event.
Mr. Buhari described Mr. El-Rufai as a “pragmatic and prudent manager of resources,” who would champion the rescue mission in Kaduna State and dispense justice fairly to everyone.
