President Buhari Has Endorsed My Second Term Ambition In 2019 – Gov. El-Rufai
Governor Nasir El-Rufai of Kaduna state has disclosed that President Muhammadu Buhari has endorsed his ambition to seek re-election in 2019.
Speaking in a radio interview in Kaduna, the governor noted that with this endorsement, he would definitely seek re-election.
El-Rufai, however, said those interested in contesting can come out as the constitution of the party allows for primaries to elect a standard-bearer.
He stated that he is ready to face anybody in a free contest in order to emerge as the party’s flag bearer.
El-Rufai said: ”It was after I have finished briefing him that he (President) gave me the nod to seek re-election together with my deputy.
”It equally allows for a consensus candidate if the majority of the party members agree on a consensus candidate.”
