El-Rufai Going To Ruin Kaduna With His Anti-People Policies – Shehu Sani

Published

on

Shehu SaniThe senator representing Kaduna Central Senatorial District, Senator Shehu Sani has openly disagreed with Governor Nasir el-Rufai of Kaduna State, saying he has so far introduced unpopular policies and running a government that does not consider the interest of the people of the state.
The senator also said he will not fail to call the governor to order if he doesn’t deliver on the promises made during the gubernatorial campaign.
Sani, who spoke in an interview with Tribune, said while he never intended to be on a collision path with the present Kaduna administration, Governor El-Rufai’s policies are harsh, inconsiderate and anti-people.
“He is a technocrat, while I’m an activist and a revolutionary. So, my power base is the common people the masses who constitute my strength. They are the people I have lived with and fought for over the years. The way the governor is running the affairs of government in Kaduna State is the one which, if care is not taken, we will all sink.
“He has to take consideration of the fact that he met people that were impoverished, that were muscled, harassed and demoralized by the government of the PDP. So, first of all, they don’t need harsh policies that will further impoverish and alienate them. We need to carry them along, taking cognisance of the situation which we find them in. I fundamentally differ with him on that issue. For that reason, he has decided on his own not to even appoint people who identify with me in anyway and who are also seen to be from my camp”, he said.
The senator said Mr. El-Rufai is ignorant of the needs of Kaduna residents and with the way he is going, he will plunge the state into ruins.
According to Sani, “Kaduna is a place I have I lived all my life and since I came out of prison in 1998, I have never been out of Kaduna for more than two weeks and I’ve never been appointed to any public office which I will live in Abuja and not know what is happening in Kaduna. So, I can tell you that within Kaduna North, Kaduna South and metropolis of Kaduna, there is hardly any street that I don’t know anybody.
“He is running the state in such a way that he will end up ruining all of us, which I will not be part of. He has taken some steps which have only attracted anger from the general public against him”.
In what appeared to be an ego contest, Mr. Sani said he and the governor have similar statuses.
“He is a governor, I’m also a Senator. He is not bigger than me, neither am I bigger than him.
“So, as far as I’m concerned, whether El-Rufai is a governor or whatever, anything which he does that does not tally with what is supposed to be done, I will certainly tell him”, Mr. Sani said.

    Fashola: If We Keep Our Promises, APC Will Retain Power In 2023Babatunde Fashola

Minister of Works and Housing, Babatunde Fashola has expressed optimism that Nigerians will still vote the All Progressives Congress (APC) back to power in 2023.

Fashola, however, added that the only thing that can make Nigerians not to vote for the APC is if the party fails to fulfill its campaign promises to them.

The Minister made this remark while speaking with journalists on Monday in Abuja.

He noted that even if the promises are not 100% fulfilled but the citizens see signs of commitment and progress, other parties should forget about displacing APC in 2023.

The former Lagos State Governor added that opposition parties are not doing better than the APC, hence should not expect Nigerians to vote for them come 2023.

He said: “Some governors have joined us, from where we think we could not get voters before. To retain power in 2023, certainly if we keep our promises, people will vote for us. It is that simple, that is politics,” the former Lagos governor said.

“If you do what you say you will do, even if you don’t do hundred percent and they see that you are making progress, they will even want you to finish what you started.”
