El-Rufai Allegedly Woos Shehu Sani’s Loyalists With Plots of Land, Juicy Contracts

By Ikenga Chronicles January 17, 2017

Allegedly unperturbed of the carnage being perpetrated by  Fulani herdsmen in Kaduna, the State Governor, Nasir El-Rufai  has allegedly started wooing his political detractors with plots of land and juicy contracts without recourse to due progress.

This came as some of the loyalists and supporters of Senator Shehu Sani, representing Kaduna Central were reported to have defected to the camp of the governor because of the juicy offer.

Shehu Sani and El-Rufai have been at daggers drawn since the inception of El Rufai’s administration in the state subsequently leading to the suspension of the senator from the APC.

Recall that one Sheikh Abdulazziz a supposed loyalist to Shehu Sani  had recently announced his defection to El-Rufai’s camp through the Governor’s Special Assistant on politics, Uba Sani.

He wrote: “As I once said earlier when I was with Shehu Sani’s camp, all  I need is recognition, yesterday we were invited by his Excellency the Executive Governor of Kaduna State , Mallam Nasir El-Rufai and we had a fruitful discussion.’’

He added” The governor in his kind gesture forgave all of us for been deceived earlier in the name of struggle, at least each and every attendant was given 200 thousand, a plot of land and a contract Alhamdu Lillahi. Later, the governor through his political aide promised to continue financing my education.’’

Reacting to the claim that Sheikh defected from his political camp to join forces with El-Rufai, the Senator said:  “I do not know Sheikh Abdulaziz and he never belonged to my camp as he claimed.”

“Governor El-Rufai invited him and few others through his S. A ‎Political Affairs, Mallam Uba Sani and gave each of them N200,000, a plot of land and a contract for defecting from my camp. Honestly they don’t belong to my camp? Hence, Mr. Governor has been duped”, Sani said.

Many sources however confirmed that Sheikh Abdulaziz actually belong to the political camp of Shehu Sani.

Speaking, a Kaduna resident called on Senator Sani Shehu to focus on his legislative duties in the National Assembly instead of attacking and castigating El-Rufai at the slightest opportunity.

A source who spoke in defence of the El-Rufai’s action said: ‘’If Sehu Sani is interested in the Governorship seat in Kaduna come 2019, then he should make his intent public rather than “Pull-Down” the governor to make him look bad. You cannot advance your ambition by destroying another person, you should show what qualities you have which makes you better than others.’’
