The senator representing Kaduna Central District, Shehu Sani, has accused Kaduna State Governor, Malam Nasir El-Rufai, of “thinking of removing President Muhammadu Buhari”.
In an explosive interview in the March edition of The Interview magazine, Sen. Sani said, “It would be counter-productive for the Governor to start thinking of evicting Buhari in 2019 to be the President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria”.
“El-Rufai should do his job and stop putting his eyes on the Presidency”, the former rights crusader-turned politician added.
Senator Sani, who belongs to the same governing All Progressives Congress with the governor, has been at loggerheads with Mr. El-Rufai for undisclosed political reasons.
The height of the political disagreement between the duo led to the purported suspension of the senator for 11 months by the state chapter of the party.
Mr. Sani, in the same interview, accused Mr. El-Rufai of ruling like “an emperor,” promising to “give him war or peace”, depending on the one he wants.
