Senator representing Kaduna Central Senatorial District, Senator Shehu Sani has accused Kaduna State Governor Nasir Ahmad El-Rufai to be behind a purported threat of his expulsion from the All Progressives Congress (APC) following his stands against removal of subsidy from Premium Motor Spirit (PMS) otherwise called petrol by the Federal Government.
Senator Sani in a press release signed by his Special Adviser Politics and Ideology, Comrade Suleiman Ahmed, which AUTHENTIC News Daily got a copy of, alleged that “The press conference and threat of expulsion made by one Tanko Wusono of Kaduna APC against comrade Senator Shehu Sani for objecting to the increase in pump price of petroleum products stands unambiguously condemned. Kaduna APC as it exists today is simply an extension of El-Rufai’s government.
He explained that “The press conference is the hands of Jacob and the voice of Esau. The said Tanko Wusono is the special assistant to El-Rufai Commissioner for local government Bashir Saidu at the same time member of Kaduna internal revenue board. El-Rufai is cowardly to directly confront Sen Sani and resort to using Buhari’s name to fight his domestic battles.
Shehu Sani however alleged that El-rufai was never a Buhari man but pretender who can kneel down to anyone as long as that can propel him to power. He asked how can someone who is allergic to criticism, who claimed to be a Buharist but still can’t publicly declare his assets like PMB.
“El-Rufai is a bad and rotten egg in the APC. He knelt down for Atiku to become BPE chair and later betrayed him. He knelt down for Obj to become a minister and later betrayed him. He knelt down for Buhari to be governor of which later he will betray him. Fear El-Rufai whenever he kneels down before you.
Senator Sani further alleged that “The use of APC Kaduna to fight Shehu Sani by El-Rufai is a testimony to how timid and mischievous the governor is. El-Rufai is a Man who had abused PMB and only aligned himself with him when Yar’adua and GEJ denied him juicy ministerial positions and recognition he craved.
“El-Rufai is a man who had spent 13 years of the 16 years of PDP in power and now claims false progressive credentials. The heart, the lungs and the “blockos” of El-Rufai is still PDP.
“The threat of expulsion of the distinguished senator by El-Rufai spokesman is nothing but the hallucinations of a barely educated ogogoro drinker. It will be interesting for the general public to know that even the so called state headquarters of the APC is a building owned by a top PDP chieftain in the state. It will also interest the public to know that 80 percent of Kaduna state APC Exco are appointed into El-Rufai government.
Senator Shehu Sani who claimed to be a hundred percent supporter of PMB, but who is neither a sycophant nor a hypocrite, but will not speak his mind when there is the need to do so also accused the governor of destroying APC in Kaduna thereby scaring people away from the party.
“El-Rufai is a man who jails journalists and fear challenge to his tyranny.
Senator Shehu Sani is an activist who remain consistent in his beliefs and struggles. Senator Shehu Sani is loved by his people and will continue to serve them. We call on El-Rufai to stop hiding behind APC Kaduna and wearing the mask of PMB to fight his battles.
