The Governor of Kaduna State, Nasir El-Rufai, on Friday responded to the exit of previous VP Atiku Abubakar from Nigeria's decision party, APC. 

Mr. El-Rufai, a leader of the APC, talked after the Friday Jumat petition at the mosque in the Presidential Villa, Abuja. 

Mr. Abubakar on Friday reported that he was leaving the APC. He didn't state the gathering he would join, in spite of the fact that he is relied upon to keep running for president on the stage of the restriction PDP. 

The former VP and Mr. El-Rufai have in the past had an open spat over issues of debasement and dedication. 

While noting columnist's inquiries on Friday, Mr. El-Rufai said Mr. Abubakar was not driven out of the APC. 

Q: How would you feel that Atiku has left the gathering that you are in together? 

El-Rufai: Well, I won't state we were in the APC together. A few of us shaped the APC, some of them joined on the grounds that they believed that the APC was a stage for which they will challenge decision however when they didn't kick the open door they off glancing around. 

I have caught wind of what the former Vice President said in regards to leaving the APC. 

We knew he would leave in December yet he has left in November which is great in light of the fact that the prior he leaves for where he has a place, the better. He hosts changed political gatherings a couple of times, there is not all that much. Before the 2019 races if circumstance changes and he wants to get the ticket in 2019 he will return. 

That is the thing that he has done a couple of times. 

Q: Some are stating you individuals host driven him out of the get-together? 

El-Rufai: No one hosts driven him out of the get-together, the APC is an equivalent open door stage for everybody. He has in his announcement of leaving the gathering made reference to the notice I kept in touch with Mr. President in September 2016, where I was approaching the President to connect with party pioneers that vibe wronged and I specified him, the Asiwaju and numerous others. 

The others are still in the APC since they have faith toward the gathering, they trust we have come to spare the nation from a terrible circumstance. In any case, the previous Vice President is continually searching for a chance to challenge. He is a serial contender and we wish him good fortune. 

Q: Some Nigerians are stating that a few individuals from your gathering faithful to him may run with him. How would you respond? 

El-Rufai: I don't think about the followers in the APC that will run with him however I need to guarantee you that there is nobody representative in the APC that will run with previous Vice President Atiku Abubakar. 

The main representative that he would think will run with him, the legislative leader of Adamawa State has just supported President Buhari for the 2019 decisions. Furthermore, there are numerous governors I won't specify the number however a larger part of the APC governors have effectively taken the position that the president should keep running for a moment term in office. 

We are thankful to the Almighty God that the question marks about his wellbeing have been put to rest, he is showing signs of improvement consistently and we are certain that the best approach to protect our gathering and save and propel the enthusiasm of Nigeria is for Mr. President to keep running for a moment term. I'm interested to see which APC senator will run with Atiku. 

With respect to party supporters it relies upon what you protect as followers. We will keep a watch out how that advances. 

However, as a senator I need to guarantee you that not one representative will leave the gathering to run with the previous Vice President. 

That I am certain of. I can talk definitively about it since I'm in contact with my associates. 

Q: Don't you consider him to be a danger in the occasion the PDP gives him the ticket an
