Kaduna State governor Nasir El-Rufai has said the loss suffered by the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the local council election in his ward happened because the people are not happy with the candidate.
“People are laughing that I lost the polling unit in my ward – anyways, it is democracy that won. I am not on the ballot – So it is not a referendum on me,” El-Rufai said in a television interview on Monday.
“It is a referendum on the councilor and the performance of the local government chairman. I’m happy that it went well.
“People are making choices based on the performance of their elected officials.”
El-Rufai said the people voted for individuals on the ballot and not the party.
