Governor of Kaduna state , Nasir El-Rufai has given reasons why governors of the All Progressives Congress, APC, from the North decided to support the party’s flag bearer, Bola Tinubu. The matter was tendered during a town hall meeting with some Northern Christian groups in Kaduna. El-Rufai explained that Northern APC governors decided to support Tinubu to ensure unity, fairness, and justice in Nigeria. He said the Northern governors settled for Tinubu because of his track record when he was the Governor of Lagos State.
He said; “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.”
APC chieftain, Victor Ndoma-Egba has assured presidential candidate Bola Tinubu of victory in Cross River State.The gathering was attended by Tinubu, his running mate, Senator Kashim Shettima, and other party stalwarts. Ndoma-Egba said Cross River people would vote for Tinubu as they did for the late Moshood Kashimawo Olawale (MKO) Abiola, who won the 1993 presidential election.
He recalled Tinubu visited Cross River with MKO before the poll, and though the state was NRC (National Republican Convention), “you were received like a brother and a friend.”
“After that visit, for the presidential election, Cross River voted SDP (Social Democratic Party) because of your visit.“Today you are here to canvass votes for yourself. If we did it for another person on your recommendation, we will do it for you too this time around.”
