Nasir El-Rufai, Governor of Kaduna State, has expressed optimism that the President Muhammadu Buhari-led All Progressives Congress, APC, will emerge victorious in 2019 presidential election. The governor said boasted that the APC would win 24 states of the federation in the next elections. Featuring on Channels Television, the governor maintained that APC’s victory will be without stress.
“I have no doubt in my mind that we will win the 2019 Presidential election. We will also win our 24 States and more,” he said. Recall that El-Rufai alongside six other governors from the North recently endorsed Buhari for a second term. The governors who had endorsed Buhari include, Abdullahi Ganduje (Kano), Yahaya Bello (Kogi), Simon Lalong (Plateau), Jubrilla Bindow (Adamawa), Ibrahim Geidam (Yobe) and Abubakar Bello (Niger).
