Governor El-Rufai has said that the Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed, and others in the villa know the individual in the villa working against the APC in the forthcoming general elections.
Recall that on Wednesday, February 1, Gov El-Rufai in an interview alleged that some persons in the presidency were working towards the failure of the ruling party APC. Lai Mohammed while speaking with state house correspondents after the Federal executive council meeting on Wednesday, February 1, stated that the Presidency is not aware of those in its fold working against the APC.
Speaking in a fresh interview with Arise TV on Thursday, February 2, Gov El-Rufai insisted that some elements in the villa are working against the ruling [party. He stated that even Lai Mohammed knows the person he is referring to as working against their party. He said
“Let me restate exactly what I said. I am a quantity surveyor. What I said was that we are convinced that there are elements in the Villa, some elements in the villa that want APC to lose the elections, I did not say the Federal government. I did not say Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu. I said APC. So I don’t understand why the Federal government is responding to what I said because the Federal government is not part of it. I referred to elements in the villa and I know who I am referring to and those in the villa know who I am referring to and with the greatest respect even Lai Mohammed my brother knows who I am referring to.”
