Some people in Aso Rock working to make Tinubu lose election – El-Rufai reveals
Kaduna State governor, Malam Nasir El-Rufai has made a stunning revelation, saying some elements in Aso Rock Villa are working against the All Progressives Congress presidential candidate, Bola Tinubu, ahead of February 25 presidential election.
He said those in the forefront of working against Tinubu’s victory are those who suffered defeat during the APC presidential primaries.
El-Rufai spoke on Wednesday when he was featured on Channels Television, noting that some are elements in the Villa wants the APC to lose election because they didn’t have their way.
According to him, those working against APC’s presidential election are hiding behind President Muhammadu Buhari who is insisting on doing what is right.
I will give two examples: this petroleum subsidy, which is costing the country trillions of Naira, was something that we all agreed would be removed.
“In fact, I had a discussion with the president and showed him why it had to go. Because how can you have a capital budget of N200b for federal roads and then spend N2 Trillion on petroleum subsidy? This was a conversation I had with the president in 2021 when the subsidy thing started rising. He was convinced. We left. It changed. Everyone in the government agreed, and it changed.
“The second example I will give is this currency redesign. You have to understand the president. People are blaming the Governor of the Central Bank for the currency redesign, but No.
“You have to go back and look at the first outing of Buhari as president. He did this; the Buhari, Idiagbon regime changed our currency and did it in secrecy with a view to catching those that are stashing away illicit funds. It is a very good intention. The president has his right. But doing it at this time within the allotted time does not make any political or economic sense.”
