Five associations in kaduna state have bought nomination form for the State Governor, Malam Nasiru El-Rufai to seek re-election.
Speaking while presenting the form to the governor at government house kaduna, the leader of the delegation Alhaji Abbas Likoro said they purchase the form in order to plead with the governor to re-contest due to his administration achievement in various sectors across the state.
The leader of the delegation described governor Elrufai as a leader that deserves second term in office.
According to Alhaji Abbas Likoro, the associations purchased the form include Independent Petroleum Marketers Association of Nigeria, IPMAN, Petroleum Tanker Drivers Association, PTD,, National Association of Road Transport Owners, NARTO , Traders of Sheikh Mahmud Gummi Market and The Katsina and Daura People’s Association all kaduna state branch.
Governor Nasiru El-Rufai said it was the most pleasant surprise for his life and told the delegation that he had accepted the nomination form in good faith .
He said “when the party fixed the money for form, I could remember that during the meeting ,the President Buhari was the first person to raise his hand and said he does not have five million naira.
”Infact, we the governors started discussing on how we will raise the money for Mr President. We said each governor will contribute two million each. And we travelled to China and it was in China I told the President that some group have purchased the form for you. So who will buy my own for me?
“I don’t have N20m also to buy my form. The money I have in the bank is not close to that amount”
Governor El-Rufai assured the delegation that, his administration would continue to ensure that, whoever is living in the state irrespective of religious or tribal inclinations will get justice.
