The Kaduna State Governor, Mallam Nasir el-Rufai, has alleged that the mammoth crowd that attended the Monday rally of the Peoples Democratic Party in Sokoto was rented from Niger Republic by the party. El-Rufai, who made the allegation on Tuesday during the inauguration of the campaign council of the All Progressives Congress in Kaduna, said the PDP had nothing to offer Nigerians.
He described the PDP campaign inauguration in Sokoto as a gang-up of “thieves”.
Speaking during the inauguration of the 69-member Kaduna APC Campaign Council, the governor noted that the 2019 General Elections were between patriotic leaders and those who went to Abuja to loot. He said the APC government anchored its agenda on putting the people first, saying the government since 2015 had focused on running an “equal opportunity government.”
The governor claimed the APC government for the last three years had been fixing the rot the PDP left behind in its 16 years rule.
The PDP in its response accused El-Rufai and others of creating problems for the PDP while they were members of the party. It said the rots created by the former minister at the Federal Capital Territory and others while in the party were being cleared by the National Working Committee of the party, led by its National Chairman, Prince Uche Secondus.
