Kaduna State Governor, Nasir El-Rufai has come out to blame the silence of Muhammadu Buhari for the decision reached by many delegates to vote for Bola Tinubu as the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress.

He recently revealed this while speaking to the press, and fans have been reacting.

According to him, Buhari asked the Northern delegates to vote for any of the shortlisted five presidential candidates of their choice, so they had to do what they felt was right.

He added that Buhari also didn’t dictate how delegates from Kaduna State voted at the APC presidential primaries.

His words, “In many of our states, the delegate votes were divided.”

“Before I went to address the Kaduna delegates for the last time, I went to the President and I asked him, have you decided on who we should vote for? He said, I told you, go and vote for any of the five (candidates selected by APC Governors).”

“I said, Mr President, the Kaduna delegates are your delegates, you are going to retire and live in Kaduna. So you can tell me who you want out of the five, and the President said ‘I want all five’.”

“I said, what then should I tell Kaduna delegates. He said, tell them to vote their conscience; they are representing 10 million people in Kaduna state. It’s a heavy responsibility, and they should discharge it and pick the best candidate.”

“Now I don’t know how the Kaduna delegates voted, but the feedback I got after the voting is that most of them voted for Asiwaju, some voted for Amaechi and some voted for Professor Yemi Osinbajo.”
