The governor of Kaduna State, Nasir El-Rufai has said he currently has no personal aspirations towards being president in 2019.

The governor who spoke to newsmen after a visit to President Muhammadu Buhari, said he was a Buharist and had a goal of getting the President to re-contest in 2019.

El-Rufai said “As far as 2019 is concerned my position is the president is doing very well, he is recuperating very fast. He is recovering and my hope and prayer is that he will contest in 2019.

And everything that our group is doing and we have a group. We have a group of Buharists, amongst governors, ministers.

Our group wants to ensure that President Buhari runs in 2019. If he chooses not run he will tell us which direction to go and we will go.

We are Buharists. We don’t have any personal ambition, we don’t have any personal aspiration and we are waiting for him to decide.

Every political effort we are making, every structure we are creating is towards that end”
