President Muhammadu Buhari has urged the electorate across the country to vote for all APC candidates without exception.
Mallam Samuel Aruwan, Senior Special Adviser, Media and Publicity, to Governor Nasiru El-Rufai, stated this in statement yesterday.
Aruwa said the President gave the directive while inaugurating his National Campaign Council noting that without comprehensive victory for all the APC candidates it might be difficult to achieve holistic success.
He dismissed as baseless media reports that the President had urged the
people to vote for candidates of their choice and not APC SAK as was the case in 2015. “That is not true. I am clarifying this as the spokes person for Buhari and El-Rufai re-election campaign organization.
“What brought about all this issue was that some people that could not have won election on their own in 2015 found their way into elective offices; some into the senate while others into the House of Representatives and others the state assembly , because Buhari said people should vote APC SAk.
“Instead of them to work for the interest of the party or Kaduna State, they spent their time insulting the President, insulting the Governor of Kaduna State and failed on their part to uplift the poor conditions of those who elected them”, he said.
He said for instance that some frustrated the plans of the state to get loan to actualize the blueprint for the development of the state at the senate.
“Can you imagine in 2015, the Governor gave out money to contestants into various offices to pay their agents, one senatorial candidate collected N109,500,000 to pay party agents, but he disappeared only for the Governor to pay again the sum of N70m on behalf of this senator.
“Those who were there when the money was given out are ready to swear by the Holy Qur’an as such I am using my position as Spokes person for Buhari and El-Rufai Election Campaign to call on Kaduna People to reject these characters in 2019”, Aruwan said in a statement.
