APC Speaks On El-Rufai ‘Insulting’ Tinubu, Defends Comment On Stopping Godfatherism In Lagos 3

The All Progressives Congress in Kaduna State has defended Governor Nasir el-Rufai’s comment on stopping godfatherism in Lagos State.

Over the weekend, El-Rufai had taken a swipe at Bola Tinubu’s dominance of the political structure in Lagos State, saying he would teach people of Lagosians how to end godfatherism in Lagos State.

However, Kaduna APC said that the governor did not insult APC National Leader, Bola Tinubu in any way by his anti-godfather remark as being insinuated in the media.

Kaduna APC said in a statement by its Assistant Publicity Secretary, Salisu Tanko Wusono, that it was worrisome that a state like Lagos which boasts of over six million registered voters would record a voter turnout of about one million. The statement partly reads:

“The Kaduna State chapter of the All Progressives Congress wishes to identify with the Kaduna State governor and support his opinion on why every Nigerians should ensure massive participation in electoral process, because it is worrisome to see a situation where only one million voters would turn out to vote out of acclaimed six million registered voters.”

“Therefore, we are of the opinion that what the Kaduna State Governor said was just clarion advice that all hands should be on deck to ensure that every registered voters in Nigeria are encouraged to come out to vote on election days.”

“Having found out from our interactions with many stakeholders, we discovered that Malam Nasir el-Rufai did not insult Asiwaju Bola Tinubu or anybody for that matter at the occasion rather the Kaduna state governor was only encouraging all registered voters to vote at every election so as to downplay the role of godfatherism in Nigeria politics just as it were in the recently concluded general elections where many political godfathers were sent out of business.”
