A group known as The Nassiriya Organisation, in 21 States of Nigeria, has dragged the Governor of Kaduna State, Nasir El-Rufai, to the High Court in Kaduna, asking the court to compel him to accept their request for him to join the 2023 Presidential race, Page 36 learnt..
Addressing Journalists in Kaduna, the State capital, at the weekend, the National Leader of The Nassiriya Organisation, and Zonal Vice Chairman of the All Progressive Congress, APC, in the North-West, Dr. Garkuwa Ibrahim Babuga, said that they had instituted a suit at the Kaduna High Court, against the Governor’s refusal to accept their request.
Babuga stated that they had no option than to approach the Court, because they had spoken to the Governor on the issue, but he had declined their request.
His words: “We also met his parents and relations, but we have not gotten a successful answer. We have to go to court. Nigeria is for El-Rufai in 2023.
“El-Rufai is fit to be President, based on his tract records of achievements. Many people are yearning for the El-Rufai Presidency. I do not have to overblow the trumpet, you all have seen his developmental strides in the FCT and in Kaduna State. He is the best person for the Villa in 2023.
“Let us continue to be loyal and support President Buhari to complete his tenure. But El-Rufai as President and successor to Buhari, will further unite Nigeria.
“We are appealing to our Elders in the North, please forget party differences, we should join forces and rally round El-Rufai, so that he contest and win the Presidency.
“Although, he did not answer our call, we have gone to court, so as to compel El-Rufai to vie for the number one seat in Nigeria.
“The next sitting on the matter is on the 2nd of November, 2020. We have sought the legal services of Barrister El-Zubair. We will all be in the court.”
Recall, that Governor El-Rufai had said in the Media, that he is in support of a President from the South, come 2023, but the Leader of The Nassiriya Organisation countered the Kaduna State Governor’s opinion, noting:
“It was his opinion. All we are looking for now, is to drag him into the race. El-Rufai will be the best Nigerian President in 2023, by the grace of Allah.”
