The Nassiriya Organization has thrown its weight behind the Governor of Kaduna State, Malam Nasiru Ahmad El- Rufai to become president of Nigeria in 2023.
National Leader of the Nassiriya Movement and Northwest Zonal Vice Chairman of the ruling All Progressive Congress(APC), Dr Garkuwa Ibrahim Babuga, while speaking to journalists in Kaduna said the association and its members across 21 states are ready to convince the Kaduna state governor to change his mind and contest the 2023 presidential polls.
He noted that even if it means approaching the court to mandate El-Rufai to contest, the Nassiriya movement is ready to.
“We are ready to go up to the Supreme Court. We also met his parents and relations but we’ve not gotten a successful answer. We have to go to court. Nigeria is for El-Rufai in 2023. El-Rufai is fit to be President based on his track records of achievements.
Many people are yearning for the El-Rufai Presidency. I don’t have to overblow the trumpet, you all have seen his developmental strides in the FCT and in Kaduna state. He is the best person for the Villa in 2023.
Let’s continue to be loyal and support President Buhari to complete his tenure. But El-Rufai as President and successor to Buhari will further unite Nigeria.
We are appealing to our elders in the North, please forget party differences, we should join forces and rally round El-Rufai so that he contest and win the presidency.
Although he did not answer our call, we are going to court so as to compel El-Rufai to vie for the number one seat in Nigeria.
On the 2nd of November, 2020 we going to Court 13 here in Kaduna. Our lawyer is Barrister El-Zubair.”
It isn’t yet clear if Governor El-Rufai, will give in to the demands of the, Nassiriya Organization, or will continue his support for power rotation to Southern Nigeria.
