War of words between Kaduna State Governor, Nasir el-Rufai and Former Lagos State Governor, El Rufai Disrespects APC Chairman Bola Tinubu escalated on Friday with the former saying he’s too clean to be the latter’s running mate.
Speaking exclusively with Daily Mail, El-Rufai through one of his aides who refused to be named as he was not the official spokesman of the Governor said, “Nigerians know who a drug baron is. Nigerians know who was arrested and convicted of drug peddling in the US some decades ago.
El Rufai Disrespects APC Chairman
“The Executive Governor of Kaduna tate cannot be a running mate to such a person.”
Tinubu had allegedly tipped the Governor of Kaduna State as his running mate for the Presidency in 2023 but the Governor has not only turned such a move down but derided the former Lagos State Governor. He also went ahead to urge Lagosians to demystify Tinubu laying strategies on how to unmake a man called ‘Lion of Bourdillon’ so as to stop him from being the godfather of Lagos politics.
