Nasir el-Rufai, governor of Kaduna, has stated that Bola Tinubu, presidential hopeful on the platform of the All Progressives Congress (APC), will get the support of Kaduna during the party’s primary.
El-Rufai said this on Thursday after APC delegates expressed their intention to support the presidential ambition of Tinubu.
The Kaduna governor had earlier stated that he would rally round any candidate supported by the delegates, and thanked Tinubu for visiting Kaduna, and for remembering the state during its trying moments.
“You are the first presidential aspirant to come to Kaduna. You are not taking us for granted. We will not forget that,” el-Rufai said.
“You have spoken to our people. They appear convinced, and when the people of Kaduna give their word, sir, you can rest assured of our support.
“We keep to our words and ensure that as we intend to keep our promise. We will also want you to promise to deal with insecurity, infrastructure and support agriculture and empowerment.”
