APC dismisses Senator's allegation that El-Rufai wants to kill him

Sani said the Governor should be held responsible if anything happens to him, adding that his life is in danger.

The Senator also alleged that Governor El-Rufai threatened to crush him at a town hall meeting.

El-Rufai and Sani have been at loggerheads for a while, following what the lawmaker termed the dictatorial tendencies of the Kaduna Governor.

Political observers thought the hatchet had been buried when Governor El-Rufai paid a condolence visit to the Senator following his mother’s death.

In a swift reaction, to the Senator's allegations, the Kaduna state publicity secretary of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Salisu Tanko Wusono dismissed the lawmakers story, saying “Crying wolf and insinuating that anyone wants to attack them further exposes them as lightweights.

“These are people clinging on straws, and trying to create mischief, conscious of their political weakness as a coalition of the defeated, the deluded and the selfish discontented.”

Wusono also added that “Their leaders lost bids to become state chairman and governorship candidate. They were trounced by democratic means, and they know it. The same democratic instruments and the rules of the party are what they seek to undermine.

“They have been engaged in these irresponsible antics since 2014.  The APC and its leaders have every right to warn them to desist from puerile politics. No one will be allowed to thwart the APC from deepening its success. The APC will not waste time pandering to the insecurities of politicians, who interpreted past efforts to embrace them as a kind of weakness.”

Senator Shehu Sani recently described Governor, Nasir Elrufai as an affliction on the people of Kaduna state.
