Controversial governor of Kaduna state, Nasir El-rufai has declared that he will never join the opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) even if his life depends on it.
El-Rufai, a former top ranking member of the PDP and minister of the Federal Capital Territory defected to the ruling All Progressive Congress (APC) under which he won the Kaduna state gubernatorial election in 2015.
El-Rufai was reacting to claims by the spokesperson of PDP’s presidential campaign, David Bawala himself a former member of the APC, who recently dumped the party following the muslim-muslim presidential ticket of the APC.
Speaking on his twitter handle, Bwala described El-Rufai as the finest politician the north ever produced and expressed optimism that the diminutive governor would soon join the PDP.
But reacting, El-Rufai on his official Twitter page said: “Thanks @BwalaDaniel but no, thanks. Never ever, not even my corpse will be found in the vicinities of your new-found political party. I still dey laugh!!! – @elrufai”
