All Progressives Congress (APC) governorship candidate in Kaduna State, and Senator representing Kaduna Central District, Malam Uba Sani, has debunked the rumoured cold war between Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu and Kaduna State Governor Nasir El-Rufai over the appointment of Senator Kashim Shettima as running mate.
He assured that El-rufai will deliver Kaduna for the Tinubu/Shettima ticket in the 2023 presidential elections, because “El Rufai reigns supreme” in the State.
Senator Uba Sani gave the assurance at the official inauguration of the VP candidate Kashim Shettima as the Chairman, Arewa Women for Tinubu (AWT) organized by the support group.
According to Uba Sani, “I want to also deliver a goodwill message from my brother, Governor Nasir Ahmed El-Rufai of Kaduna State. I want to also say here that Governor El-Rufai has total support for our brother, His Excellency, Senator Kashim Shettima; we have worked together, we are brothers and we are friends,” he said.
The Senator recalled that when the news broke out that Shettima had been selected as Tinubu’s running mate, El-Rufai was the first to try to call and wish him well. Unfortunately, he said a lot of people, obviously ignorant of the cordiality between El-Rufai and Shettima spread false reports in the press.
“I assure you, and stand to be quoted anywhere, anytime that Kaduna State would deliver the highest votes for the Tinubu presidency in 2023,” Senator Uba said. Thereafter, the Senator presented an award of honour from the Arewa Women for Tinubu to the APC vice-presidential candidate.
