El-Rufai Destroyed Buhari, Tinubu’s Relationship – Source



An associate of the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress, Bola Tinubu, has revealed why the Governor of Kaduna State, Nasir El-Rufai was not chosen as the party’s vice presidential candidate.

According to the associate, El-Rufai is one of those who sore the relation of President Muhammadu Buhari with the former governor of Lagos State.

He further stated that El-Rufai is known to attack Tinubu, hence he can not be the APC vice presidential candidate.

There had been claims that El-Rufai is not pleased with the decision of Tinubu to pick the former Governor of Borno State as his running mate.


The associate, who spoke with Daily Independent on the issue, said, “People have short memories in this country.

“How on earth can Asiwaju and el-Rufai pair together? Have you forgotten how he attacked Asiwaju and humiliated him in the past? How many people still membered in May 2019 when el-Rufai came to Lagos and said Tinubu should be retired from Lagos politics?

“He boasted that he ended godfatherism in Kaduna and he can teach Lagosians how to do the same in Lagos. Aside from that, he has made several denigrating remarks about Asiwaju in the past.


“El-Rufai is one of those who cause a wedge in the relationship of Asiwaju and Mr President, especially during the first term. How can he choose that man to be his deputy? It is practically impossible.”
