2019 General Elections: El-Rufai Gets Buhari Nods For Second Term
Governor Nasir El-Rufai of Kaduna State has made it known that his quest to contest for second term in office has received the nod of President Muhammadu Buhari.
He noted that with the endorsement of the President, he would definitely seek re-election.
The governor stressed that he got Buhari’s blessing shortly before he briefed him on his intention recently.
He, however, stated that those interested to contest can come out as the “constitution of our party allowed for primaries to elect a standard-bearer.”
According to El-Rufai, he is ready to face anybody in a free contest in order to emerge as the party’s flag bearer.
El-Rufai said, ”It was after I have finished briefing him that he (President) gave me the nod to seek re-election together with my deputy.
”It equally allows for a consensus candidate if the majority of the party members agreed on a consensus candidate.”
