In another media appearance on Arise TV, El-Rufai insisted that strongly believe that there's a conspiracy to incite voters against the APC - Nasir El-Rufai

He said:

“I still stand by my words. There is, there appears to be a very strong evidence and conspiracy and to incite voters against the APC in the forthcoming elections by coming up with ad-hoc decisions and policies that are not well thought out.
“Because, these policies are not only seen as insensitive, but aimed at punishing people and they will take it out on us on our party and our candidates.”
