‘If not for Buhari, he wouldn’t be governor,’ APC says

The faction also criticized El-Rufai over a leaked memo in which he accused the president of not meeting up to expectation.

President Muhammadu Buhari and Kaduna State Governor, Nasir El-Rufai.

The faction also criticized El-Rufai over a leaked memo in which he accused the president of not meeting up to expectation.

Chairman of the Kaduna APC faction, Tom Mataimaki Maiyashi made the comments via a statement.

It reads:

“In our view, knowing the role Mr. President played and his integrity, Nasir El-Rufai wouldn’t have become the governor of Kaduna State.”

“El-Rufai’s Memo is a total disrespect, shocking and clueless. How will Nasir El-Rufai write such a Memo to Mr. President when he is doing nothing in Kaduna State?

“Look at gutters all over the state, I wonder if that is a mark of progress in our state. Someone who claims to be holier than thou asked us to go and climb Kufena Mountain and jump if we are not satisfied with his appointments. He even said we are ants he can crush with his iron shoes.

“El-Rufai muzzles and pounds us. Can such a person correct Mr. President? This is a height of disrespect, arrogance and deceit. Nasir El-Rufai should first change himself. It is the integrity of Mr. President that makes him to be a governor today. Malam Nasir el-Rufai can never be a role model of proper conduct.

“So, for him to tell Mr. President what to do in his administration its unfortunates. He should have been the least if at most people should criticize Buhari.

“Everything that Kaduna state government is entitle to is been given. From the Paris club funds refund to bail out for states. El-Rufai has shown nothing for these funds apart from the federal allocations.

“Nothing to show that merited what Kaduna has been getting from the federal government. El-Rufai has failed woefully. It was in that psychology he wrote that Memo because he thinks he understands and knows all.”

Kaduna State Senator, Shehu Sani had also criticized El-Rufai for the memo describing the governor as a dubious hypocrite.

El-Rufai said, on Thursday, April 7, 2016, that it was Buhari who forced him to contest for the governorship of the state.

Sani also said that he was forced to abandon his governorship ambition because El-Rufai was Buhari’s choice.
