APC pledge support to Gov. El-Rufai's body bag comments says Nigeria a "sovereign nation.”

The comments from  Kaduna Governor, Nasir El-Rufai that any outsider or foreigner who attempts to interfere with the coming General Election will be sent back to their country in "body bags" has been supported by the The All Progressives Congress (APC)

In a statement Friday night by the APC National Secretary, Mallam Lanre Issa-Onilu, the party said it stands fully by the comment.

The statement read thus;

“So what Governor Elrufai said clearly is the position of this government that we are proud as Nigerians and we are ready to defend the integrity of this country and that any country that thinks in the name of election will want to interfere and dictate to us or intimidate us in any way, it is unacceptable.

“That is exactly what Governor Elrufai has said. The PDP can twist it the way they want. Governor Elrufai never said people should not come and observe or monitor elections. And he was not referring to people who are genuinely coming to monitor and observe the elections.

“Nigerians also go to other countries as monitors and observers. So that is acceptable to us, we welcome peer review. What we don’t welcome and what is unacceptable to us is any country thinking we are a colony, we are not. We are a sovereign nation.”
