Governor Nasir El-Rufai of Kaduna State on Friday said northern governors were committed to President Muhammadu Buhari’s re-election bid and have no apologies for their stand.
El-Rufai was speaking after seven state governors from the Northern part of the country met behind closed doors with President Buhari at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.
All the governors were elected on the platform of the All Progressives Congress. The governors are Abubakar Bello (Niger); Ibrahim Gaidam (Yobe); Yahaya Bello (Kogi); Abdullahi Ganduje (Kano); Nasir El-Rufai (Kaduna); Jibrilla Bindo(Adamawa) and Simon Lalong (Plateau).
El-Rufai said they felt satisfied that whenever they met the President, they always noticed that he was getting better as far as his state of health was concerned.
He said, “We are politicians and those of us you see here want the President to contest the 2019 election. We have no apologies for that.
“We believe in Mr. President, we want him to continue running the country in the right direction.
