The Deputy National Secretary of the All Progressive Congress, APC, and governorship aspirant of the party in Kaduna state, Nasir El-Rufai, Friday, picked his governorship nomination form.
Mr. El-Rufai who arrived the party secretariat in Kaduna in the morning in company of his supporters said rescuing Kaduna state from what he described as “low ebb” is an inevitable mission that must be carried out to the later.
He said “We are here with my team to fill our expression of interest and nomination form to contest governorship of Kaduna state. We are driving because of our state is backward and ready to change it. We are not contesting to make money for ourselves; we are not contesting for selfishness but (we are) contesting to re-build a new brand Kaduna state.
“Our prayer always to God is to give us opportunity to serve but if it is not so, may God deny us and give to whoever pleases Him for unity, peace, development, justice and progress of our dear state.
“What I want to say to our people is simple, don’t vote wrongly, we shouldn’t allow people to cheat us and make us slaves. We must all vote wisely and vote competent people to man our state.
On the forthcoming APC governorship primaries in the state, Mr. El-Rufai said he considered all aspirants brothers.
“I consider my other aspirants brothers, competitors and not enemies, I respect them and don’t make any disparaging comment against any one because at the end of the day APC is one family and we will unite to defeat PDP.
“My aspiration is not do or die, that is why we don’t use hate or abusive words in our engagement and it is about constructive engagement and genuine demonstration to serve passionately. We are
running open campaign for nothing but new Kaduna state, please join us and let’s run a better system.”
