2019 elections: Whoever says he defeated Buhari is either dreaming or needs… — el-Rufai says
Governor Nasir el-Rufai of Kaduna State has said that anyone who thinks he defeated President Muhammad Buhari in the 2019 presidential election needs psychiatric assistance.
This was even as he said, President Buhari had consistently won Kaduna since he started contesting elections in 2003.
The governor was apparently reacting to the claim made by the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) Presidential candidate, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, who said he won the 2019 presidential election with 1.6 million votes .
He also appealed to all the people of Kaduna State to join hands with his government to move the state forward, promising that, the government will be fair to all and work for all, irrespective of their political and other affiliations.
Top government functionaries at the programme include the Deputy Governor-elect, Dr. Hadiza Balarabe, Speaker of the state assembly, Hon. Aminu Abdullahi Shagali, SSG, Balarabe Abbas Lawal and wife of the Governor, Architect Hadiza el-Rufai.
