Senator Shehu Sani has criticized Kaduna State Governor, Nasir El-Rufai for insulting All Progressives Congress (APC) Leader, Bola Tinubu.
Sani also accused El-Rufai of attempting to belittle Tinubu’s contributions to the victory of the APC in the 2015 elections.
The Senator made the comments via a statement released on Wednesday, April 19.
The statement reads in part:
“The memo written by Kaduna Governor which tends to belittle the contribution of Asiwaju Ahmed Bola Tinubu and the South-West is sad and unfortunate. It is perfidious and the height of ingratitude.”
“We must accept the stark truth that without Bola Tinubu and the principled position of the South-West, dislodging Goodluck Jonathan and the then ruling PDP could have still remained a pipe dream, a hollow hope or a political mirage. El-Rufai defecates on a broom that is supposed to clean the littered floor of the nation.
“President Buhari is the heart of APC and Asiwaju is the lungs. Tinubu’s contribution to the success of the party is unequalled. El-Rufai smiles with Tinubu on broad daylight and stings him at night. He hugs Tinubu with a chest of hooks and shakes him with toxic palms.
“El-Rufai should publicly apologise to Tinubu and the South-West. To insult a man publicly and apologise to him privately is to eat your cake and have it. Those heavily drinking from the liquor of power should know that they will later or lately have to drive back home.”
Sani had also criticized El-Rufai over the memo in which he criticized President Muhammadu Buhari for his administration’s policies.
