The Kaduna State APC is enmeshed in crises, with two party senators, Shehu Sani and Sulaiman Hunkuyi and a number of members of the House of Representatives forming a formidable faction against the governor.
However, the party has held a stakeholder meeting in order to look into the crisis eating up the polity in the state. The governor who spoke called on the warring factions of the party sheath their sword and unite for the development of the party in the state.
“I had fought with two presidents,” Mr El-Rufai said at the Kaduna APC stakeholders meeting held at Murtala Mohammed Square, Kaduna, “Umaru Yar’Adua ended in his grave, while President Goodluck Jonathan ended in Otueke.” “Let us forget our differences and work for the development of the party. If you are not willing to stop the fight, you should know that I am a dogged fighter,” he said
Governor El-rufai later knelt before the stakeholders, apologizing to the ward, local government and state excos, members of state and National Assembly and other stakeholders of the party for all his wrongdoings.
“I implore you to tell me the wrong I did to you and I will apologize. But if it goes beyond today, I will never tender apology,” he added. Senator Hunkuyi who was not invited to the meeting however made a shocking appearance. In his remark says he high the governor (El-rufai) in high esteem and that it is normal to have political fights.
