As Far As 2019 Is Concerned, President Buhari Will Contest – Gov. El-Rufai
The Kaduna governor said: “As far as 2019 is concerned, my position is the president is looking very well. He is recuperating very fast. My hope and prayer is he will contest in 2019.
“Everything that our group is doing, and we have a group, we have a Buharists amongst governors, ministers. Our group wants to ensure that President Buhari runs in 2019.
“If he chooses not to run, he will tell us which direction to go.”
El-Rufai who had been asked to comment on the possibility of himself replacing Buhari as the candidate of the All Progressive Congress (APC) in 2019, remarked that Buhari’s supporters have no personal political ambitions.
According to him, “We are Buharists, we don’t have any personal ambition, we don’t have any personal aspiration and we are waiting for him to decide.
“And every political effort we are making, every structure we are creating, and we know many people that have already started campaigning, they want to tag some of us as part of the problem and we are ready for them.
“But our political ideology is to support whatever President Buhari wants to support. That has not changed.
“And I want to assure you whatever names you hear, Nasir El-Rufai is not an aspirant for the presidency neither any of the governors that are known to be Buharists as well as some of the ministers that are known for from time.”
