Nasir El-Rufai, governor of Kaduna state, says Bola Tinubu, the All Progressives Congress (APC) presidential candidate, is the best man for Nigeria’s top job in 2023.
He stated this during the inauguration of the Kaduna State APC Campaign Council at Murtala Square in Kaduna on Thursday.
According to El-Rufai, Tinubu will transform Nigeria same way he did in Lagos while serving as governor of the state
The governor described the APC presidential flagbearer as a just leader who would ensure that everyone is treated fairly and equitably if elected at the polls in 2023.
“Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu is our candidate whom we all supported to get the ticket and we are sure we will not regret it,” El-Rufai said.
“He is an experienced leader; he has shown what he can do in Lagos State, we expect him to apply the same magic formula to transform Nigeria for the better,” he added.
The governor urged residents of the state to vote for all APC candidates across all elective positions at the forthcoming 2023 general election.
El-Rufai’s declaration of support for Tinubu comes days after a viral video of the Kaduna governor criticizing the APC presidential candidate for insisting on running for office regardless of his age.
