Nasir El-Rufai, the governor of Kaduna State, disclosed on Wednesday that some individuals in Aso Rock Villa are attempting to thwart Bola Tinubu, the APC’s presidential candidate, from winning this month’s poll.
“I think there are Villa factions that want us to lose the election because they weren’t able to have their candidate,” he added. During an appearance on Channels TV’s Sunrise Daily, El-Rufai said that their candidate had lost the primary.
El-Rufai clarified that those opposed to Tinubu’s victory were those whose candidates were beaten by the APC presidential flagbearer in the party’s presidential primaries.
They’re attempting to make us lose the election, and they’re hiding behind the president’s commitment to upholding moral principles. I’ll offer you two examples. First, we all agreed that the fuel subsidy, which is costing the nation trillions of naira, would be eliminated.

El-Rufai said: ”In fact, I explained to the president during our conversation why it needed to be eliminated.” Because it is impossible to spend N2 trillion on petroleum subsidies while having a capital budget of N200 billion for federal roads.
”When the subsidy issue started to get worse in 2021, I had this talk with the president.” He was persuaded. We went. It evolved. “The governmentwide agreement led to a change.”
“This currency makeover is the second example I’ll use. You must comprehend the president. The Central Bank Governor is being held responsible for the redesign of the currency, but No. You must go back and examine Buhari’s inaugural address as president. He did this; the Buhari-Idiagbon administration changed our currency covertly in an effort to find individuals hiding illicit monies. It has the best of intentions. It is the president’s right. However, doing so now, within the allowed time, is neither politically nor economically sensible, El-Rufai explained.
