APC has no plan to suspend El-Rufai- Spokesperson, Wusono


The All Progressive Congress, APC, in Kaduna State, says it has no plan to suspend the former governor, Nasir El-Rufai.

There were reports alleging that El-Rufai would soon be suspended for anti-party activities.

A message on Tuesday night by Salisu Wusono, spokesperson of APC in Kaduna, explained that there is no such plan, adding, “Nothing like this.”

El-Rufai visited the headquarters of the Social Democratic Party (SDP) in Abuja and also was recently seen with Abdul Ningi, the Senator suspended for alleging that the 2024 budget was padded by N3 trillion.

These visits brought debates on social media, amid insinuations that the former governor is plotting a political move.

Debunking the views of many, Shehu Gabam, national chair of the SDP, had said political meanings should not be read into the SDP visit because he has known El-Rufai for quite some time.

He clarified, “My relationship with Mallam Nasir el-Rufai predates 1999. I knew him long before then, and we have been close.”

He wondered why coming to the SDP secretariat is so special, saying that he does not know why it is so special that people misinterpret or interpret how it suits them.

He said, “There are a lot of politicians of the APC that have visited me, other parties have visited me.”

He further explained that not too long ago, Al Mustapha came to his office and people were speculating that he was decamping to SDP.

He added that El-Rufai played a major role in the merger that birthed the APC in the buildup to the 2015 polls.
