A People’s Democratic Party, PDP lawmaker, Rafiu Ibrahim (PDP, Kwara) has revealed why the Kaduna State Governor, Nasir El-Rufai is ‘angry’ at the Senate President, Bukola Saraki.
The Federal lawmaker from Karate state said El-Rufai’s anger with the Senate president started when the Senate’s refusal to approve $350 million loan sought by the Kaduna State Government from funders.
The lawmaker said this why reacting to an alleged statement by Mr El-Rufai on a Hausa radio programme where he allegedly described the present Senate under the leadership of Mr Saraki as the worst, Mr Ibrahim described the Kaduna governor as a “loose cannon and a liar who is one of the people that got the All Progresives Congress (APC) into the current mess it found itself now.”
A while ago, Gov El-rufai had requested a loan for ‘Development Policy Operation’ from the World Bank.
However, the request was turned down by the Senate after a committee headed by Shehu Sani (APC-Kaduna) advised against it on the ground that the state is the second most indebted in the country.
