Human Rights Activist turned politician, Senator Shehu Sani has hit out at Kaduna State Governor Nasir El-Rufai for playing down South-West and Senator Bola Tinubu’s contributions in Buhari’s emergence as the president in his controversial memo.
Sani, who is at war with El-Rufai described the latter as an ingrate in a statement he released on Wednesday.
The senator representing Kaduna Central contrary to El-Rufai’s claim in the memo to President Buhari, argued that the contributions of the former Lagos State governor and that of Southwest to the victory of the APC in the last general elections was unparallel.
He added that Tinubu was familiar with betrayal.
He said, “We must accept the stalk truth that without Asiwaju Ahmed Bola Tinubu and the principled position of the south West, dislodging Goodluck Jonathan and the then ruling PDP could have still remained a pipe dream, a hollow hope or a political mirage. El-Rufai defecated on a broom that is supposed to clean the littered floor of the nation.
“President Buhari is the heart of APC and Asiwaju is the lungs. Tinubu’s contribution to the success of the party is unequal. El-Rufai smiles with Tinubu in broad daylight and stings him at night. He hugs Tinubu with a chest of hooks and shakes him with toxic palms.
“Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu is a man who built a castle for others to live and asked to appreciate the gift of a room in the boys’ quarters. Those who rubbished a hunter who borrowed them his arrow to disable an antelope will someday come back for same arrow to disable a lion.
“Tinubu honoured many official invitations to Kaduna, unknowingly; he was back-stabbed with an acidic memo. Tinubu has a history of being betrayed and has a history of overcoming betrayal.”
