The governor of Sokoto state, Aminu Tambuwal, on Thursday, December 6, came hard against his Kaduna counterpart, Nasir El-Rufai over the latter’s statement concerning the PDP campaign rally held for the north west zone on Monday, December 3.
Tambuwal said El-Rufai was shocked by the massive reception that the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Atiku Abubakar, had in Sokoto during the rally.
He also said the Kaduna governor was worried about the decreasing popularity of the APC among Nigerians. He also described El-Rufai as one of the people who have destroyed the All Progressives Congress (APC) administration in Nigeria.
In a statement by Akibu Dalhatu, the special adviser on public enlightenment and mobilization, Tambuwal reacted to the claim by El-Rufai that the PDP hired crowd from Niger to give the impression that Atiku was well accepted.
