We will render support to the victory of governor Nasir El-Rufai and all APC candidates in Kaduna state. We are counting on the millions of votes from Kaduna state for the re-election of President Muhammadu Buhari in 2019 polls. Kaduna state voted massively for APC in 2015 and I am convince that your votes for APC in 2019 will be higher than before “
On his part,Kaduna APC State Deputy Chairman,Alhaji Shuaibu Idris, told opposition that there is no vacancies in Presidential Villa and Kaduna state government House as the current occupants have performed credibly well and need no replacement in 2019.
Also speaking, Garba Datti Babawo, member representing Sabon Gari federal constituency and chairman caucus House of representatives members from Kaduna state, called on the electorates to vote all APC candidates, saying only APC that laid the foundation will transform the nation.
Babawo, said the gang up against President Buhari and the APC by the former military leaders and some clerics will fail,warning that any attempt by the National Assembly to override President Buhari on the rejected electoral amendment bill will be resisted by APC members:”
We heard that there are meetings to override Mr president on the electoral amendment bill rejected by him but we are in full support of Mr.President. Any attempt to override him will fail” he said.
Dr. Sani Bello, a former Peoples Democratic Party( PDP) Kaduna state governorship aspirant who recently decamped to the APC urged his supporters to vote all APC candidates in 2019, adding that having observed PDP his former party, only APC will work for Nigerians.
Bello said:” I m calling on all my supporters and Kaduna electorates to vote President Muhammadu Buhari, governor Nasir El-Rufai and all other candidates in the forthcoming elections to continue with the transformations, because PDP has nothing to offer Nigerians. I am one of the leading figures that left the party to join hands with APC to vote governor Nasir El-Rufai and other APC candidates because PDP relegates competency”
