Why I Picked A Fellow Muslim As Running Mate–El-Rufai

Governor Nasir el-Rufai of Kaduna State on Tuesday opened up on why he picked Dr. Hadiza Balarabe, a fellow Muslim, as his running mate for the 2019 governorship election in the state.

The governor made this known when the people of Sanga Local Government Area who were at the Sir Kashim Ibrahim Government House, Kaduna, paid him a thank-you visit for picking their daughter.

El-rufai said that the choice of his running mate was based on competence and performance.

“Muslim-Muslim ticket is not a religious ticket but a competent and performance ticket,” the governor said.

El-Rufai had told critics of the Muslim-Muslim ticket that the Government House was not a place for worship but where people work.

“The people that have criticised me most on this are people who never voted me in the first place. So, are they not supposed to be celebrating it?

“In their own opinion, I have made a wrong choice. Then, why are they mourning?” he asked.
