With the obvious desperation being exhibited by the Kaduna State governor, Nasir El-rufai, in connection with the lingering internal crisis of the All Progressive Congress (APC), Nigerians have begun to ask very many questions bothering on his interest in the party and why it has just been him “here” and “there” even though he dismissed reports of him nursing an ambition to contest.

Why is it always El-rufai? Many are asking. But the answer is not far-fetched. Recall that the Kaduna state governor was the first person to announce an agreement of zoning of the party’s presidential ticket to the South even though he was not the only governor who had a meeting with President Muhammadu Buhari where some issues in the party were said to be discussed.

It left many wondering why the Kaduna State governor would ascribe so much power to himself to announce a zoning arrangement when he is not the chairman of the party and was never the spokesman of the party – a move that cast false impression of Mr. President as many Nigerians felt it was undemocratic for Buhari to force any candidate or arrangement on the party as claimed by El-rufai.

With the abnormal rush by El-rufai to announce a zoning arrangement for the APC and follow it up with massive media outings, it became clearer that the man was only clearing the coast for his selfish ambition. Multiple sources confirmed his ambition to file for the position of Vice President. This seems to be the reason for his desperado in pushing the presidential slot to the South.

El-rufai activities have deepened the crises in the APC as many party chieftains fear that if there is no urgent intervention to stop El-rufai and his allies, the party could suffer a great loss in the forthcoming election. This is in addition to the dent his statements are already doing to the personality of the president through the claims that the president ordered for the ousting of the Buni-led team.

With the current turn of events, Nigerians have now understood the tricks and schemes of El-rufai. This is why it is asked why it should be always him.

Though the personality of El-rufai was made open long ago Nigerians never paid close attention to it until he brought himself out now. Of a truth, who could know a man that his boss with whom they worked together for eight years? Former President Olusegun Obasanjo’s assessment of El-Rufai from page 412-413 of his book, My Watch Volume 2, said it all. In the book, the governor was vividly described as naive, immature, and a green snake. There is nothing truer than these words of Baba.

Why it’s always El-rufai is for the fact that “He was described as a malicious liar. He was more than that; he is a pathological purveyor of untruths and half-truths with little or no regard for integrity.”
