Ahead of the 2023 Presidential election, the Kaduna State Governor, Malam Nasir El-Rufai, has declared his support for the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress, Bola Tinubu.
According to The PUNCH, El-Rufai, stated this at the inauguration of the Kaduna State APC Campaign Council at the Umaru Musa Yar’Adua Indoor Sports Hall, Murtala Square, Kaduna, on Thursday.
He stated that the party in the state was giving Tinubu total support to replicate his developmental stride in as governor of Lagos State in the country come 2023.
El-Rufai said, “Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu is our candidate whom we all supported to get the ticket and we are sure we will not regret it.
“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.
“Tinubu is a leader who will be just, fair and equitable to all.”
He pointed out that the campaign council’s assignment was to make sure the APC won every vote in the general election of 2023.
He claimed that the work his administration had accomplished over the previous seven and a half years had altered public perceptions of government and advanced the interests of the average citizen.
He went on to say that the successes were achieved through teamwork, and that the same team would back all APC candidates to victory in 2023, and that voting for the APC in 2023 would be a vote for progress and development.
The governor, therefore, called on party members to organise themselves and work very hard and ensure that the APC was voted from “top to bottom”.
The APC governorship candidate in the state, Senator Uba Sani, in his address promised to carry everyone along and urged members of the campaign council to see their responsibility as a challenge and work as a team to deliver it.
“Remember that you are occupying a position of trust and do not forget in a democracy power belongs to the people,” he said, adding that they should “seek out the people to vote for the party.”
He advised party members to reach out to grassroots voters and work hard to ensure the party’s sweeping victory in the state as well as the presidential election.
