Statecraft group RED Media have been consulted by Nasir El Rufai to market him for Presidency in 2019, LeadersNG have gathered.
You would recall that Red Media marketed a GEJ Presidency in 2011 and a Buhari P residency in 2015. While one of its directors Chude Jideonwo had openly criticised their former client Buhari, his sights have been set on El Rufai who is believed to have paid heavily for the consultation.
El Rufai, the Kaduna Governor was fingered in the death of over 1500 Shi’ites in December 2015. You would also recall that the Power hungry Former FCT Minister was alleged to have given bribes through NPA Boss Hadiza Bala Usman to APC chieftain so he would be named Vice President to Yemi Osinbajo in the event of Buhari’s death. El Rufai had earlier written an over 50 page Memo to President Buhari criticising his administration.
As the race for the 2019 Presidency tightens, we expect to see more gimmicks and politicking from the Kaduna Governor.
