The Kaduna State Governor, Nasir El-Rufai, has claimed that some unnamed people asked him to join in a plot to destroy the National Leader of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Bola Tinubu.
E-Rufai stated this while he was playing host to 121 Members-elect of the House of Representatives, who were on a consultation tour of the North-West, at the Government House, in Kaduna.
Newsmen recalls that El-Rufai was invited to deliver a lecture in Lagos, last month, on godfatherism, where he said that he had an answer to godfatherism, as he had retired four godfathers in Kaduna.
However, while defending his statement, El-Rufai said that it was “a generic statement”, adding that, he had a template that was used to retire some godfathers in Kaduna State.
He said: “That was not an attack on Asiwaju, it was a generic statement, but the whole thing took a Media frenzy, because to some people, Asiwaju is a meal ticket.
“Let me tell you, because of that, some people started confessing and giving me some offer that Asiwaju should be dealt with.
“They said Asiwaju wants to finish you, he has been abusing you, we should finish him by finishing his man, Femi Gbajabiamila.”
“I told them that this is not about Asiwaju, but President Buhari, and I will fight it with the last drop my blood. I told them to change their mind.
“I went to Asiwaju and told him that we will do what we can, to make this project of making Gbajabiamila a success.”
