Nasir El-rufai, the governor of Kaduna state, has received the endorsement of the Tinubu Support Organization to serve as Bola Ahmed Tinubu’s running mate.
Globalgistng reports that Tinubu recently acknowledged that he is still looking for a running mate. It has been rumoured for a while that Kashima Shettima, the former governor of Borno, and Prof. Babagana Zulum, the current governor of Borno, are the two leading candidates being considered to run with Tinubu.
Director-General, Aminu Suleiman, stated at a press conference on Monday in Kaduna that the group chose El-Rufai after meeting with important stakeholders from the northwest zone and elsewhere.
He thinks that Tinubu’s choice of running mate will make the difference between his victory and failure in 2023.
As a result, the organisation, which has considered all of the options, believes that the vice presidential candidate for the APC should come from the northwest, which has the largest voting bloc in the nation.
El-Rufai is the best candidate to support Tinubu as vice president, according to the group. El-Rufai is very experienced and has excelled in both politics and governance at the federal and state levels.
Today Monday, July 4, 2022 El-Rufai is Asiwaju’s top choice for vice president, Suleiman declared. “After due consultation with critical Stakeholders, especially in the North-West, it is of fact,” he added.
“The Tinubu Support Organization is putting forth great effort to ensure that Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu is elected as the nation of Nigeria’s next president.
TSO thinks that Asiwaju’s choice of running mate will make or break his chances of winning. “We are pleased that the APC has a number of exceptional leaders. But after weighing all the possibilities, TSO believes that the APC’s vice presidential candidate should come from the North-West, which is Nigeria’s single largest voting region. “In our opinion, Malam Nasir El-Rufai is the VP who can best support Asiwaju.”
He should be chosen as the running mate, according to the Executive Governor of Kaduna State and ourselves. “El-Rufai has a lot of experience. He has held positions of authority at both the state and federal levels, and he has performed admirably in each one.
He has consistently supported progressive policies.
He has no qualms about making tough choices.
This man is in charge of a state government that includes representatives chosen from all over Nigeria.
His aptitude is undeniable. His individual talent is exceptional. He’s resolute.
He has bravery. He has strong morals. We are aware that he resisted all attempts to force him into the presidential race.
He and his fellow APC governors from the north deserve credit for upholding the ideal that gentlemen should respect agreements.
