The Kaduna State Governor, Nasir El-Rufai, on Thursday dared the cabal he accused of working against the presidential aspiration of the party’s candidate, Bola Ahmed Tinubu.
The governor during an interview on Channels Television programme, Sunrise Daily, on Wednesday claimed that some elements in the presidency are working against the former Lagos State governor’s success in next month’s election.
He added that the individuals in question are still bitter that their candidates lost out in the June 8, 2022, presidential primary that produced Tinubu as the APC candidate.

The presidency had since dismissed the governor’s claim on gang-up against the APC candidate in the State House.
El-Rufai, who featured in a programme in the Hausa Service of the British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC), insisted that he feared nobody in the country.
He said: “ Respecting people is not fear, I swear we don’t fear anyone in this country, so we are not fearful, we are respectful but if you show us you are not an elder, I swear we will fight you.”
