The Senator representing Kaduna Central, Senator Shehu Sani, has berated the Kaduna Governor, Malam Nasir el-Rufai, for his ingratitude to the National Leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC) National Leader, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu.
In a statement Wednesday, Sani, said the comment credited to El-Rufai in his memo was unfortunate and a clear case of ingratitude to Tinubi and the South-West for its role in the 2015 election.
He said without Tinubu’s contribution, the APC would never have been able to oust the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) from power.
The statement read in part, “The memo written by Kaduna Governor which tends to belittle the contribution of Asiwaju Ahmed Bola Tinubu and the South-West is sad and unfortunate. It is perfidious and the height of ingratitude.
“We must accept the stark truth that without Bola Tinubu and the principled position of the South-West, dislodging Goodluck Jonathan and the then ruling PDP could have still remain a pipe dream, a hollow hope or a political mirage. El-Rufai defecates 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 unequalled. El-Rufai smiles with Tinubu on broad daylight and stings him at night. He hugs Tinubu with a chest of hooks and shakes him with toxic palms.
“El-Rufai should publicly apologise to Tinubu and the South-West .To insult a man publicly and apologise to him privately is to eat your cake and have it. Those heavily drinking from the liquor of power should know that they will later or lately have to drive back home.”
