Senator Shehu Sani, a former lawmaker who represented Kaduna Central Senatorial District at the National Assembly, has warned President Muhammadu Buhari, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, and Adams Oshiomhole to be aware of Governor Nasir El-Rufai’s venom.
“PMB will have a taste of your patented venom and perfidy once you reach a point that he is of no further importance to you,” he said.
Sani described El-Rufai as a neophyte who relies on the popularity of Buhari to win elections, adding that he is an “opportunist who uses people in power only to betray them later.”
The senator stated this in response to El-Rufai’s mockery. The governor had posted pictures of Sani and Senator Suleiman Hunkuyi, the lawmaker who represented Kaduna North, boasting that he retired them permanently from politics.
Mr. Sani however noted that El-Rufai does not possess the capacity to retire anyone from politics. According to him, the governor’s inability to emerge as the Chairman of the Nigerian Governors Forum proved that he could not win without Buhari.
“Your treacherous history of jumping from one godfather to another is well-known to all Nigerians. And I have always believed that it’s a matter of time before PMB will have a taste of your patented venom and perfidy once you reach a point that he is of no further importance to you,” he added.
He further stated that before he dumped the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), he told President Buhari, APC National Chairman Oshiomhole and APC National Leader Tinubu, that El-Rufai would attack them at the right time.
“Before I left the APC, I told PMB and Oshiomhole and Tinubu that you will insult, betray and fight them. It is in your DNA.
Naija Buzz few weeks ago published a report where El-Rufai spoke about defeating and retiring the godfather of Lagos politics. It is well known that Tinubu, a former Governor of Lagos State, is the political godfather in Lagos.
El-Rufai however noted that his statement wasn’t directed at Tinubu, adding that he was not aware that Tinubu is even the godfather of Lagos politics.
Sani further revealed that El-Rufai knelt before Oshiomhole during the APC primaries in 2018 just to snatch his ticket.
