Mallam Nasir Ahmad El-Rufai the Former FCT Minister responded to those speculating on 2015 presidential ticket by the opposition force, the All Progressives Congress (APC).
In his statement published via social media, El-Rufai listed three significant points:
(1) APC will present an integrity-competence ticket not religion. Politics and governance are not to be mixed or dictated to by any religion.
(2) The APC will present to Nigerians the best persons with the integrity, capacity and competence to create jobs, fight corruption and rebuild our nation without discrimination. How these persons worship the Almighty God is private to them and dies not matter to discerning Nigerians particularly young people that suffer most from bad governance, unemployment and the Jonathan culture of impunity.
(3) The PDP that has no record to show other than escalation in corruption, grand larceny, trillions missing, private jets and deaths of innocent people. The PDP’s only “winning strategy” is built around promoting and financing regional and religious division, and using the proceeds of corruption to buy the military, police and INEC officials rig the next elections.

“They will be defeated no matter what they think because Nigerians are wiser and will not be taken for a ride any longer,” the message concluded.
It would be recalled that APC Chieftain Femi Fani-Kayode warned the party against Muslim/Muslim ticket, prophesied that it would suffer a bitter defeat, if goes for this option.
