The endorsement of Kaduna State Governor, Nasir El-Rufai, for re-election in 2019 by the All Progressives Congress in the state is a charade, Shehu Sani, the senator representing Kaduna Central, said on Monday.
Mr. El-Rufai, alongside President Muhammadu Buhari, was on Sunday endorsed for re-election at a meeting, held at the Umaru Musa Yar’Adua Hall, Kaduna, attended by one senator of the APC from the state, members of the House of Representatives and the State House of Assembly, and political appointees at both federal and state levels.
The second APC senator from the state, Mr. Sani, had stayed away from the event. He said the endorsement was further to Mr. El-Rufai’s alleged leveraging on Mr. Buhari’s political capital for his selfish interest.

He said the endorsement was further to Mr. El-Rufai’s alleged leveraging on Mr. Buhari’s political capital for his selfish interest. The so called endorsement of Governor El-Rufai by Kaduna APC amounts to endorsement of toxic waste,” said Mr. Sani.
El-Rufai simply gathered his employees, aides and hangers on to endorse him.
Mr. Sani, who has been in a protracted dispute with Mr. El-Rufai, belongs to another faction of the APC in Kaduna.
He said: “He is a poisonous viper corrosive to the integrity and moral standing of the party in the state and the nation.
