Following the resignation of Former Vice President Atiku Abubakar from the ruling All Progressive Congress, Kaduna State Governor, Mallam Nasir el-Rufai has described it as a good thing for the party.
El-Rufai stated this at the presidential villa in Abuja when he joined President Muhammadu Buhari at the State House to observe Jumat prayer.
He said if given the ticket of the Peoples Democratic Party, the former Vice-President is not a threat to President Muhammadu Buhari in the 2019 presidential election.
El-rufai said these in an interview with State House correspondents after joining Buhari in observing juma’at at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.
He described Atiku as a serial defector and presidential aspirant, saying no governor will leave the party with him.
