Governor Nasir El-Rufai of Kaduna State has openly declared his support for the presidential aspiration of the national leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu.

El-Rufai made the declaration at the Murtala Square in Kaduna where the national leader of the APC, accompanied by the former Governor of Borno State, Kashim Shettima, former EFCC boss, Nuhu Ribado and other dignitaries canvassed support from delegates.

Shetimma had earlier assured the delegates that the Kaduna State Governor, Malam Nasir El-Rufai was “solidly by their side.”

However, while speaking, El-Rufai said he would need the support of delegates from Kaduna State to take a decision.

“I want to correct Kashim Shettima because he said the governor is fully with them,” El-Rufai said, adding that he cannot be fully in Tinubu’s corner unless the delegates from the state agree.

“Before we confirm what Kashim Shetima said here, I want to confirm from our statutory delegates are you with Asiwaju?” El-Rufai asked, to which the delegates stood in unison, shouting yes.

“Your Excellency, I do what they tell me, they are my bosses. This is how APC in Kaduna works,” he said.
