However, the women leader of the APC in the state expressed strong opposition to the governor's remarks, describing him as treacherous.

Maryam asserted that El-Rufai had done everything to secure his victory in the 2023 elections.

Her statement reads in part:

"If you say there is no money in Kaduna State, why don’t you resign? Notwithstanding the huge debt burden, he ran from pillar to post, trying to get the party’s governorship ticket from Mallam (El-Rufai)"

In a letter signed by Ali Maishago, its Kaduna chairman, and Zakka Bassahuwa, the state secretary, the APC said the women leader was suspended for allegedly defaming the governor's character.

The state APC leaders said the women leader's actions were against the party's constitution.
