Your attack on gov Sani disrespectful, mannerless — APC chieftain slams El-Rufai’s son

Your attack on gov Sani disrespectful, mannerless — APC ch

Ibrahim Ahmadu, an All Progressives Congress (APC) chieftain, has labelled Bashir El-Rufai, son of former Kaduna State Governor Nasiru El-Rufai, as rude and mannerless in his assault on Governor Uba Sani.

Allnews.ng had reported that at a town hall meeting in Kaduna on Saturday, the governor revealed that his administration inherited $587 million, N85 billion, and N115 contractual liabilities from the El-Rufai government.

Governor Sani, on the other hand, stated that the situation had not prevented his government from satisfying its contractual duties, despite the difficulty in paying workers' wages.

However, in a series of postings on Saturday under his X account, Bashir stated that the governor was merely attempting to conceal his administration's ineptitude and failure in office.

In response to Bashir's reaction, Ahmadu told The Nation on Sunday that the governor did nothing wrong by publicising the debt left by his predecessor.

The APC stalwart said Bashir's assault on the governor was irresponsible and inappropriate, especially given that he had assisted the El-Rufai family during difficult political times.

Ahmadu said: “What is wrong is the inability of the former governor’s son to comprehend the rationale behind the disclosure to the public.

"His vituperations are unguarded and unacceptable, especially when the man involved has helped the family during hard times of political waves.

“Was it wrong for Governor Uba Sani to address Kaduna citizens at a town hall meeting where he said he inherited a huge debt burden that was eating deep into the state’s allocation?

“For us as citizens of the state, we cannot accept a situation where N7bn out of the N10bn allocation for the state in March was deducted to service the state’s debt.”
