A former Anambra State Governor, Dr. Chukwuemeka Ezeife, has slammed the Kaduna State governor, Nasir El-Rufai for suggesting there is no alternative to Muhammadu Buhari ahead of the forthcoming 2019 election in the country.
Recall that the Kaduna State Governor had earlier stated during an interview that the Nigerian President will emerge the winner of the 2019 polls as he is the number one choice for Nigerians.
In reaction, Ezeife stated that the Kaduna State governor should not be taken seriously.
Ezeife further maintained that Buhari’s regime is not in the best interest of Nigerians and Nigeria.
While questioning El-Rufai’s rationale for making the statement, Ezeife said El-Rufai’s support for Buhari may be as a result of his political interest.
Ezeife said: “Is Governor El-Rufai being honest? Is he not eyeing the Presidency?
“What does the continuation of Buhari’s Presidency translates to for the average Nigerian?
“Let me say that Nigerians know why these kinds of statement are being made today.
“But El-Rufai’s statement is neither in Buhari’s interest nor in Nigeria’s statement. The governor is not serious.”
