Kaduna State Governor, Nasir El-Rufai has hailed Rivers people for supporting and voting for a southern president.
Speaking, during the commissioning of the Eneka-Igbo Etche Link Road in Obio-Akpor Local Government Area of the state on Thursday, Rufai said the people of the state voted “quality over political sentiments”.
According to him, 2023 is the first time the PDP was unable to get 25 percent in Rivers state, adding that it shows Rivers people know when to vote for quality.
“I want to, on behalf of our presidential candidate and our party, thank you and the good people of Rivers State for making the right choice of voting for Aiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu,” said El-Rufai, a powerbroker in the All Progressives Congress (APC),” he said.
“It is the first time since the Fourth Republic started in 1999 that the PDP was unable to get 25% in Rivers State. It shows that the people of Rivers State can differentiate and they know when to vote for quality and they voted quality over political sentiments. We want to thank you for providing that leadership, Governor Wike,” he added.
