2019 Presidency: El-Rufai accuses PDP, Atiku of importing supporters from Niger Republic

Kaduna State Governor, Nasir El-Rufai, on Tuesday said majority of the
persons who participated at the Peoples Democratic Party presidential
rally, which held in Sokoto on Monday were imported from neighbouring
Niger Republic.

El-Rufai stated this on Tuesday during the inauguration of his
campaign committee in Kaduna.

According to the Kaduna Governor, the PDP brought these people to show
that they have supporters and "because Sokoto indigenes refused to
attend the rally."

He, however, vowed that his governing party, the All Progressives
Congress (APC), will not allow looters and criminals return to power
in 2019.

"Thieves have ganged up against President Muhammadu Buhari. Yesterday
(Monday) they (PDP) went to Sokoto for a rally and brought in people
from Niger Republic.

"This was to show that they have crowd because Sokoto people refused to attend.

"Our people should be assured that the very day Buhari will come to
Kaduna, all our people that will receive him will be Kaduna indigenes
and not people from Niger.

"We will fight for every vote and persuade our people that you will
only secure victory for the party you support when you vote on
election day," he said.

The PDP on Monday launched its zonal presidential rally in Sokoto for
the North-west which was addressed by the party's presidential
candidate, Atiku Abubakar; Senate President Bukola Saraki, the Sokoto
State Governor, Aminu Tambuwal; and the Speaker of the House of
Representatives, Yakubu Dogara.
