The governor of Kaduna State, Nasir El-Rufai has blasted the Former governor of Lagos State, Bola Ahmed Tinubu since both declared their interest in running 2023 presidency. 

According to information leaked through governor one of the El-Rufai aides who said:

“Nigerians know who a drug baron is. Nigerians know who was arrested and convicted of drug peddling in the US some decades ago."

“The Executive Governor of Kaduna State cannot be a running mate to such a person.”

“Here in Lagos, you have over six million registered voters, only about a million voted (in 2019 general elections); five million did not vote. If I want to run for governor of Lagos, I will start now."

“I will commission a study to know why those five million registered voters did not vote; where do they go on election day?

“Then I will start visiting them for the next four years. I will try and get just two million of them to come and vote for me; I will defeat any godfather."

“The key is to go to the people. The card reader and the biometric register have given us the tools to connect directly with the people,” El-Rufai had stayed in Ikoyi, Lagos, at an event organised by the Bridge Club tagged, “An evening with His Excellency Mallam Nasir El-Rufai, Governor of Kaduna State.”

“Yes, he’s recognised – a man like him must be recognised in one way or the other. Can’t a man who pushed drug and was arrested in the US have his name written in the black book in the US? That’s recognition too,” El-Rufai said.

“He uses his media companies to show he’s clean, he’s not corrupt.
“Who was he before being a governor? Where did he acquire his wealth? Who has bought Lagos State? Whose company collects revenue for Lagos State and has brought his protege to head one of the most important agencies of federal government – Federal Inland Revenue Service, FIRS – to collect revenue for FG?

“Have you heard the latest? FIRS is now embroiled in corruption running to tens of billions. Who do you think is collecting the money?”

“He’s not fit being his running mate. He would not even allow Tinubu to be his running mate, no, it’s not possible.
“The Ex-Governor of Lagos State belongs to the dark side of history and cannot be accorded the same respect like the former minister of the Federal Capital Territory.”

“We’re all members of a political party. The same role he plays even a bad one in APC is the same role but excellent one is the Governor playing. How many votes did his Action Congress of Nigeria get in 2015 and how many in 2019? Don’t you see his strength and control of Lagos is waning?”

“He caused trouble in Oyo State, Ogun, Ekiti and Ondo states. Didn’t we lose Oyo completely and lose Ondo in the presidential elections?

"What influence are you talking about? Does he even have a role in APC apart from from imposing a fake name on himself?

“For those he’s recruiting to speak for him, time will tell. They will also know when they have been used and how not important their landlord is. Thank God he’s called Lion of Bourdillon and not Lagos or South West or Nigeria.” he said
