Kaduna State Governor Mallam Nasir El-Rufai has said the All Progressives Congress (APC) did not promise Nigerians that it would allow fuel subsidies to continue when he was campaigning in the 2015 general elections.

El-Rufai revealed that he personally convinced President Muhammadu Buhari of the importance of removing subsidies after the party came to power in 2015.

However, he regretted that some unnamed people within the presidency advised the president to allow the gasoline subsidy to continue.

According to him, APC did not promise that the subsidy will be maintained and that it will redesign the naira.

He said:

“You have to separate the personal decision of some people in the village from the manifesto of the party because it is very important.”

El-Rufai further added that most of the people working with Buhari in Aso Rock are not APC members, adding that he strongly believes there are elements in the Village who want the ruling party to lose the upcoming elections.
