Kaduna Market Traders Distances Self From El-Rufai’s Form Purchase


LAGOS SEPTEMBER 12TH (NEWSRANGERS)-The Kaduna Market Traders Association has denied being part of the groups that purchased the 2019 governorship form of the All Progressives Congress (APC) for Governor Nasir El-Rufai of Kaduna state.
The group, in a statement on Tuesday, said it does not know the identity of those who paraded themselves on their behalf to purchase the form for the governor.
It was reported on Monday that five groups had come together to buy the governorship form of the party for Governor Nasir El-Rufai of Kaduna state.
The groups led by the Independent Petroleum Marketers Association of Nigeria (IPMAN), include Petroleum Tanker Drivers, National Association of Road Transport Owners (NARTO), Traders of Sheikh Mahmud Gummi Market and Katsina and Daura People’s Association living in Kaduna.
The governor, who expressed surprise at the development, said the gesture came at the right time because he could not have afforded the nomination fees set by the party.
“I don’t have N20m also to buy my form. The money I have in the bank is not close to that amount. I have only one account in GT Bank. Except I sell my house I will not be able to raise that that amount,” El-Rufai told the delegation at the Sir Kashim Ibrahim Government House, Kaduna on Monday.
But in a rebuttal, one of the groups described those who used their name to purchase the forms as “political scammers close to the governor”.
