El-Rufai will use Buhari, betray and abandon him– Senator Sani

Senator Shehu Sani who represents Kaduna Central District in the National Assembly, affirmed that the Governor of Kaduna State, Mallam Nasir El-Rufai, will eventually betrays President Muhammadu Buhari.

Senator Sani justifies his assertion by stating that Mr. El-Rufai is fond of using political leaders as a ladder for success and when he no longer needs them, he would dump them. 

The vocal Senator made the declaration during an interview with Nigerian Vanguard on Friday, March 9, 2018.

While explaining how the current crisis in the Kaduna chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC) began, Mr. Sani said in the past, the Kaduna Governor used and betrayed former presidents Olusegun Obasanjo, Umar Yar’Adua and Goodluck Jonathan.

“It came in different stages- the one that began with me and the one that is continuing with Senator Hunkuyi and others.

“There are both ideological and political differences between me and (Governor) El-Rufai.

“He came from a political establishment. For the 16 years of PDP rule, he spent 13 years as a PDP man, he was never known until 1999 when he was appointed the DG of Bureau of Public Enterprises and later, Minister for FCT.

“This was a man who used to call Obasanjo his mentor and he used to call (Late) Umar Yar’Adua his mentor and teacher and he used to call Jonathan Goodluck his very good leader, and now, it is Buhari.

“What I know is that the Nasir- el Rufai that betrayed Atiku, betrayed Obasanjo, Jonathan, Atiku will also betray Buhari.”
