Yesterday, June 19, Nasir El-Rufai, the former Kaduna State Governor, joined issues with his successor Governor Uba Sani, saying the latter “will fall like candy after prancing”.

Sani’s spokesman Muhammad Lawal Shehu declined comment when contacted for reaction. “No comment”, he said.

El-Rufai retuned to Kaduna barely two weeks after he and his commissioners were indicted by the State House of Assembly for allegedly misappropriating N423 billion between May 29, 2015 and May 29, 2023.

The former governor, who met with his political associates and followers at his Alimi Road residence where he celebrated the Eid-al-Adha, said he remained unperturbed by the ongoing probe of his administration by the House of Assembly.

El-Rufai in a short video clip that went viral after the meeting, predicted that the probe of his government will not yield any result.

He urged his followers (in sarcasm) to pray for the new Governor (Uba Sani) and his cabinet to do the right thing, the former governor said in Hausa.

At a town hall meeting in Kaduna on March 30, Sani said his administration inherited a huge debt burden of $587 million, N85 billion, and N115 billion contractual liabilities from the administration of El-Rufai.

He also lamented that due to the rise in the exchange rate, the state was paying back almost triple of what was borrowed by the previous administration.
