Governor Nasir El-Rufai of Kaduna State has denied stepping down as the chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC) Campaign Council for the Kogi governorship election.
The governor made this known in a statement issued on Sunday by his Special Adviser on Media and Communication, Muyiwa Adekeye.
El-Rufai said he will continue to campaign for the re-election of Yahaya Bello as governor of the state for a second term.
The governor reminded the purveyors of the rumor that it is well-known that he gives his best to all his assignments, and the Kogi election will not be different.
He said: “The people of Kogi State will make their free choice at the ballot. Therefore, every political actor has a duty to ensure that the voters act on the basis of accurate information, not lies and fake news.
“I will be on the ground in Kogi this week as the APC works for another democratic mandate.”
The statement added that “APC will continue to campaign to persuade the people of Kogi State to renew the mandate they gave our party four years ago. That is the focus of the Malam Nasir El-Rufai and the members of the APC Campaign Council.”
