Group rejects El rufal endorsement as Tinubu’s running mate

Disgruntled youths under the umbrella of the North East Stakeholders Forum of the All Progressives Congress have kicked against the open endorsement of Kaduna State Governor, Nasir el-Rufai, by Tinubu Support Organisation as the ideal candidate for the vice presidential slot.

 

The TSO had described El-Rufai as the best among the contenders being proposed as running mate to the APC presidential candidate, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu.

 

Director-General of Tinubu Support Organisation, Aminu Suleiman, while briefing newsmen in Kaduna on Monday said that they had decided after a consultative meeting with critical stakeholders of the party in the North-West geopolitical zone of the country.

 

Suleiman reiterated that, though the APC had many outstanding individuals among its ranks that could serve as Tinubu’s running mate, the North-West, as the single largest voting bloc in Nigeria, should be allowed to produce the next Vice President.

 

Reacting to the development, Chairman of the APC North-East Youth Stakeholders Forum, Haruna Sardauna, on Monday night urged Nigerians to reject the imposition of el-Rufai on the country.

 

Sardauna also called on the President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.); APC National Chairman, Senator Abdullahi Adamu, and the party’s standard bearer, not to take the focus away from the North-East region for justice and equity sake.
