El-Rufai Bombs Tinubu

Governor Nasir el-Rufai of Kaduna State has disclosed that he does not know if the national leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu is the political godfather in Lagos State…

“There is no dispute between me and anyone in the APC, the APC is one family, I don’t dispute with my own party. They may dispute with me but I don’t. I made comments in Lagos about how to retire godfathers.”

“It is a template that we have used in Kaduna and it has worked. If anybody thinks he is a godfather, the template may apply to him but I am not in dispute with anyone.”

“I expressed my views firmly and very clearly, there is no human being that I am afraid to express my views on, and when I am ready to express my views, specifically on a particular name then I will do so but I haven’t.”

“As regards wanting Tinubu retired as godfather of Lagos politics, I am in same party with Tinubu and we got along very well but. I don’t know if he is the godfather of Lagos, it’s up to him to say that.”

“What I know for sure is that we have retired godfathers in Kaduna and I have told those that asked me the question that ‘there are six million registered voters in Lagos but only one million voted,’ in the last election.”

“So there are five million people that you can bring into the electoral playground and you can defeat anyone if you work hard’. It’s hard work, it’s four years. That is what I said and if anyone feels offended by that, that is his business or her business.”

“I have no apologies, I don’t apologise for my views. My views are thought-out and I put them there. I don’t have to explain anything to anyone. This is a democracy, and in a democratic space, there must be room for people express their views.”
