APC Senator blasts El-Rufai: You are a failure, a “dubious progressive”

The lawmaker representing Kaduna Central in the Senate, Shehu Sani, has attacked Governor Nasir El-Rufai, describing him as a “dubious progressive.”

Mr. Sani, who was controversially suspended by a faction of the party in his home ward, blamed the governor for the act.

“My “Indefinite suspension” by Governor Nasiru elrufai controlled, induced and misinformed self acclaimed “APC excos” and the paper it was written upon is as worthless and as useless as the used sanitary pads in the toilets of his family official residence,” the lawmaker wrote on his official facebook page.

PREMIUM TIMES reported the controversial suspension amidst allegations that Mr. El-Rufai’s political adviser bribed the ward officials to execute the act.

Mr. Sani and Mr. El-Rufai, despite being elected on the same APC platform, have had no love lost between them.

Efforts to get the reaction of the governor to Mr. Sani’s claim were unsuccessful. Calls to Mr. El-Rufai’s spokespersons, Samuel Aruwan and Muyiwa Adekeye, were not picked. Mr. Aruwan did not also respond to a text message sent to him.

Read the Senator’s facebook post below:

My “Indefinite suspension” by Governor Nasiru elrufai controlled,Induced and misinformed self acclaimed “APC excos” and the paper it was written upon is as worthless and as useless as the used sanitary pads in the toilets of his family official residence.It’s as valueless as the used tissue papers of his gluttonous and bulging poodles and lackeys.

I wish to fully assure the bespectacled pygmy and his running dogs that the “new suspension” will not give them the public support they couldn’t gather with the “first suspension”.

For a man who has been unable to address the pervasive insecurity and genocide in southern Kaduna for a man who has been unable to stem the tide of rampant kidnapping and abductions in Kaduna, “suspending” Shehu Sani cannot be counted as an achievement. Mr Governor, My suspension will not increase your physical height nor give you the flesh or muscle of a macho.

Elrufai remains a typical establishment man,who was brought to limelight by the PDP,nurtured by the PDP.He is a dubious progressive and a bogus representation of change. If elrufai represent change, then Mabutu,Batista,Kamuzu Banda represent change.Elrufai is a bug, a lice and a parasite to PMB administration.

His loyalty to PMB is nothing but self serving and self preservation.Elrufai is a foul air to any serious concept of change. Elrufai remains the excrement of the toilets of PDP wadata House and no broom or deodorant of change can give him a new identity.

We will continue to work for the masses and defend their interest.”

Editor’s note: The last sentence of the main story was edited to reflect which of the spokespersons a text message was sent to.
