We Are Behind El-Rufai’s Body Bag Statement, APC Declares

Published

The ruling party on the country, the All Progressives Congress (APC) has given its reaction to the threats made by the Kaduna State Governor, Nasir El-Rufai, that any foreigner who dares to intervene in Nigeria’s forthcoming elections will go back in “body bags”.

 

It noted that it backed the declaration “as regards any country that thinks we are a colony; that we have a right to defend every inch of this country; and we are not a banana republic.”

“That is exactly what Governor Elrufai has said. The PDP can twist it the way they want. Governor Elrufai never said people should not come and observe or monitor elections. And he was not referring to people who are genuinely coming to monitor and observe the elections.
“Nigerians also go to other countries as monitors and observers. So that is acceptable to us, we welcome peer review. What we don’t welcome and what is unacceptable to us is any country thinking we are a colony, we are not. We are a sovereign nation.”

Malam Nasir Ahmad El-Rufai (born 16 February 1960) is a Nigerian politician who is the incumbent Governor of Kaduna State, Nigeria. He was the former Director General of Bureau of Public Enterprises, the head of privatisation agency in Nigeria. He was the Minister of the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja from 16 July 2003 to 29 May 2007.

He is a member of All Progressives Congress (APC) and was elected as the Executive Governor of Kaduna State during the 2015 general elections in Nigeria.
