The leader was on Tuesday in Ukambani, where he encouraged Kenyans to join his bandwagon and be part of the team that will form the next government.
This is as he expressed confidence in clinching the top seat, telling Kenyans that the same, if it happens, will bring with it a reward for every Kenyan.
Ruto said that his government will see to it that Kenyans have money in their pockets, the main reason why they should side with him.
"I hope you are ready to form the next government with me. We have big plans about the economy and how to change the situation and put money in the pockets of the people and dismiss the poverty currently being seen in Kenya," he said in Emali.
Ruto added that he is the only one with the interests of Kenyans at heart, unlike his opponents who are busy championing for constitutional amendments.
His remarks were echoed by his allies who accompanied him, among them former Machakos Senator and Ukambani leader Johnston Muthama.
The firebrand politician, who doubles up as the National Chair of the DP's UDA party, said that all Kenyans have settled on the DP and will back him.
"Kenyans from all across the country and from all the tribes have settled on Ruto. They are together behind him and his ideologies," he said.
His bid, however, is facing opposition from among others, President Uhuru Kenyatta, who has reportedly settled on ODM leader Raila Odinga as his preferred successor and the next President of Kenya.
