Why I Rejected El-Rufai’s Endorsement
Lawmaker representing Kaduna Central Senatorial District, Shehu Sani, has described the endorsement of Governor Nasir el-Rufai by the All Progressives Congress in Kaduna State for a second term as a charade.
Sani, while condemning the endorsement in a statement on Tuesday, described el-Rufai’s mobilisation of support for President Muhammadu Buhari to get a second term as self-serving.
He said, “The so-called endorsement of Governor el-Rufai by the Kaduna APC amounts to endorsement of toxic waste. El-Rufai simply gathered his employees, aides and hangers-on to endorse him. He is a poisonous viper corrosive to the integrity and moral standing of the party in the state and the nation.
“El-Rufai’s name dropping and mobilisation for Buhari 2019 is self-serving. His loyalty to Buhari is for political relevance and his allegiance to Buhari is for self-protection and preservation.
“Now that President Buhari is back from medical vacation and the chances of becoming a Vice- President is zero, el-Rufai has taken up a new project for Buhari 2019. El-Rufai’s obsession with Buhari is not about Buhari but about himself. Buhari should protect his testicles from a man who always bend close to his knees.
“Those who endorsed el-Rufai are marketing a bottled fart. A man who boasts of sending (the late former President Umaru) Yar’Adua to his grave should not be trusted by Buhari. The snake that killed the hunter can kill the charmer.”
