The governor of Kaduna State, Nasir El-Rufai has acknowledged that Nigeria was in dire straits following what he called, “multiple quagmires,” noting that God will choose the best leader for Nigeria come 2023.

El-Rufai said this while receiving the All Progressives Congress chief presidential aspirant, Bola Ahmed Tinubu, who was in Kaduna State, on a condolence visit, donating N50million naira to the victims of the bandits’ attack on a Kaduna-bound train.

While commending Tinubu for his kindness, the governor noted: “We are aware of your aspiration to be president of this country, we look forward to further engagement so that we can progress that aspiration.”⁣

He continued: “Nigeria is at crossroads, critical crossroads, and we must take very difficult decisions to get the right leaders that would take us out of the multiple quagmires that we are going through. These are human challenges and they can be solved by human ingenuity.”

“I pray for God to choose who is best for Nigeria so that we will be the better, united, progressive and exemplary country that is fair and just to everyone,” El-Rufai added.

The Kaduna State Governor also commended Tinubu for cancelling his 70th-anniversary colloquium as a mark of honour for the victims of the attack.⁣⁣

El-Rufai said: “This visit preempted my planned visit to Asiwaju to thank him for solidarity with the people of Kaduna for cancelling his colloquium the day it was to take place. This gesture by Asiwaju is a show of powerful leadership, empathy and concern for the lives and property of Nigerians. It’s unprecedented in our history in Nigeria.⁣

In his remarks, Tinubu said: “We are facing the current challenges seriously and we have to do more. Nigeria bleeds on behalf of everybody. We need to fight terrorism with all our energy and whatever we have. It’s not shameful for people to be poor, but it’s unacceptable to accept poverty as a norm.⁣

“It’s shameful to be callous, wicked and be a bully or terror to instill fear in humanity and it’s not acceptable,” the APC presidential aspirant quarrelled. ⁣
