Shehu Sani slams El-Rufai over Kaduna debts
A former Kaduna Central senator, Shehu Sani, has slammed the immediate past governor of Kaduna State, Nasir El-Rufai, over the debt he left behind for his successor, Senator Uba Sani.
Sani in a tweet on Wednesday also dared El-Rufai to make public his assets by publishing the content of the form he submitted at the Code of Conduct Bureau (CCB).
El-rufai, a two-term governor, said his administration left behind financial liabilities to the tune of $577.32 million foreign debt, N64.54 billion domestic debt and Other Contingent Liabilities of N16.06 billion for the new governor, Sani.
He disclosed this in his farewell speech at the swearing-in ceremony of the new governor in Kaduna on Monday and claimed he never stole from the state’s coffers.
Sani slammed the erstwhile governor with the former lawmaker alleging that El-Rufai left a massive debt profile for Kaduna state.
“Mr El-Rufai, retired Governor now back to ‘blogging on Twitter’ while waiting for political appointment from Tinubu, after working for Amaechi and surreptitiously dropping negative stories,” he tweeted.
“You left a huge debt profile for our Children and grand Children in Kaduna State to pay AND YOU claimed that you NEVER STOLE from the coffers of Kaduna State.
“One of your stooge even claimed that you are poorer now. I dare you to make public your assets by publishing the content of the form you submitted at the Code of Conduct Bureau, both the one of 2015 and that of 2023.
“I will get back to you after you have done this.”
