Kaduna: El-Rufai sons disagree over debts inherited by Gov Sani

Bashir and Bello El-Rufai have opposed each other on X platform over a recent disclosure by Kaduna State Governor, Senator Uba Sani, who said his administration inherited $587 million, N85 billion, and 115 contractual liabilities from the past administration.

Sani made this known on Saturday at a town hall meeting in Kaduna, indicting his predecessor, Nasir El-Rufai.

However, his revelation did not go down well with Bashir, who blasted the governor for allegedly trying to cover up for his ineptitude.

Bashir tweeted: “These guys have realised that they are wholly incompetent and the only way to mask the nonsense is to deflect.

“From a Governor who is always sleeping in Abuja to a litany of incompetent aides who were only rewarded for foolish political reasons.”

Bello, on his part, countered his brother for attacking the governor, asserting that Sani was right to reveal the debts he inherited from the past administration.

Pledging his loyalty to Sani, Bello, a member of the House of Representatives, representing Kaduna North Federal Constituency, said, “It’s a known thing in politics that some people won’t rest unless there are fights between one another. I am in the middle, and I could even be meeting with the governor tonight in thirty minutes.

“Two weeks ago, I had to call my brother and tell him to drop a tweet. I did that today, but he refused. He is over 30 years old. People should stop confusing our handles.

“I am loyal to Governor Uba Sanni, and I will not criticize him publicly. No one will make me do that. He mentored me, gave me my first government job, and believed in my election. This too shall pass. The rural development being done in Kaduna State is impressive.

“Nigeria, as a whole, not just Kaduna, is facing financial constraints. As leaders, we are all elected to do what we can with what we have and improve it. I honestly do not see what the fuss is about.”

The lawmaker further said social media attacks from haters of the governor won’t deter Sani.
