El-Rufai’s Son Berates Gov Sani Over $587m, ₦85bn Debt Claim

Hon. Bashir El-Rufai who is the son of the immediate governor of Kaduna State, Nasir El-Rufai, has lashed out at Governor Uba Sani accusing him of neglecting his duties in the state.

He claimed that Governor Sani was always hibernating in Abuja while surrounding himself with incompetent aides.

Bashir said that instead of admitting its incompetence, the Uba Sani administration has resorted to raising alarm on a debt burden inherited from Governor El-Rufai administration.

He was reacting to claims by Sani that he inherited a huge debt burden of $587m, N85bn and 115 contractual liabilities from the El-Rufai’s administration, making it difficult for him to pay workers’ salaries.

Africa Today News, New York had reported that Governor Sani disclosed this during a town hall meeting on Saturday in Kaduna.

Responding, Bashir posted on X: “These guys have realised that they are wholly incompetent and the only way to mask the nonsense is to deflect.

“From a Governor that is always sleeping in Abuja to a litany of incompetent aides that were only rewarded for foolish political reasons.”

On the debt profile of the state, he responded: “FYI: He was the Senator from Kaduna who lobbied and approved the loans.

“One would think that from all the FAAC allocations these unserious clowns have changed to dollars, debt would be the least of their problems.

“The current administration in Kaduna is building a banquet hall for 7bn naira and is lamenting about debt left by the previous administration.”
