Governor Nasir el-Rufai of Kaduna State has warned against voting for the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) in the 2023 general elections.
The governor, who made the appeal yesterday during an empowerment programme in Kaduna, said the PDP would destroy his good legacies and drag the state and the entire country backward if allowed to return to power.
He, however, urged the people to vote for the candidate he would anoint as his successor in 2023.
Governor el-Rufai said: “Some people said that what we have done now cannot be reversed, wrong. A bad governor, a PDP governor can reverse this in six months.
“Don’t make the mistake of voting PDP back into office in 2023. If you do, things will go back to what they used to be. While we go through our process as All Progressives Congress (APC) and bring out a candidate and I endorse that candidate, please trust me that that person will be the better governor of Kaduna from 2023 and beyond.
“Let us continue to pray for the progress and success of Kaduna State and stop eulogising the governor.
“People have been talking about Kawo Bridge. Kawo Bridge would not have been possible if our members of the National Assembly had not approved the loan that Shehu Sani and Suleiman blocked for two years.
“People like El-Zazzau and all the members of the National Assembly fought and made sure we hold this market and that is why you are seeing this.”
