This comes amid reports that State House operatives fear that he could seek to deal with President Uhuru Kenyatta once he occupies the seat, in response to the problems Uhuru is sending his way currently.
But he on Saturday said that he has no such plans, adding that he as well will not seek to settle things with ODM leader Raila Odinga, whom he says has teamed up with the President to frustrate him.
He called for calm in the camp of these two, stating that he had no problems with them, adding that they can be sure that they will have their security detail intact even if he gets the chance to call the shots.
"I will protect all of them and give them enough and even more protection. Even those ones known for going around the country will be considered. I don't have a problem with that," he said in Awendo.
He spoke as he bashed the two for teaming up to battle his candidacy, following reports that Uhuru has settled on the former Premier as his preffered successor and is working towards implementing it.
Ruto wondered why the two are now working against him yet he helped them secure the presidency and Prime Minister positions some years back, observing that they should he supporting him actually.
"Don't we all know that I was the one who helped Baba (Raila) secure the Prime Minister positions when I was in ODM? I did the same to make Uhuru President. Why are they now united against me?" added the DP, who has been attacking both leaders.
Uhuru is said to have embarked on a plan to fortify Raila and strengthen his bid by trying to rally the opposition brigade behind him, even as reports indicate that he is having it hard achieving this.
He has since reneged on his earlier vow to endorse the DP, after earlier stating that he will help him secure two terms once done with his own.
