Senator Shehu Sani would one day be beaten up for criticising me, El-Rufai

Kaduna State Governor Mallam Nasir El-Rufai has said a time will come that his supporters would beat up Senator Shehu Sani for criticising his government.

El-Rufai, who has been at loggerheads with Senator Sani stated this in a recent interview he granted newsmen in Kaduna where he traced the genesis of their dispute to his failure to appoint Sani’s candidates for commissioners.

He added that all the people the activist cum politician nominated for commissioners were not up to scratch.

He said, “I told my media team not to respond to him; we are a government of everybody including Shehu Sani. Let the party apparatchik respond to him, let people in the streets respond to him, and I also told them to let’s work, let’s produce results because we will get to the point that nobody can come and criticise us because the boys will beat him up.

“…I asked all of them including Shehu Sani to give me names of people that I will appoint to positions, they gave me, and I looked at them, and none of the people from Shehu’s list is good enough to be a commissioner in my cabinet…In a state where there are about 10,000 PhDs that I have in my data base; I am not going to take a diploma holder and make him a commissioner just because he is Shehu Sani’s man. I don’t operate like that.”

Recall last December, Senator Sani, who represents Kaduna Central said in a statement that the attack on his constituency office at Stadium Roundabout by Constitution Road, was carried out by men working for Governor Nasir el-Rufai.
