Uba Sani suffers backlash as El-Rufai calls Kaduna governor ‘incompetent’



Uba Sani

Bashir El-Rufai, the son of former Kaduna Governor Nasir El-Rufai, has slammed Governor Uba Sani for accusing his father of plunging the state into debt. 

Sani previously stated on Saturday that the El-Rufai administration left the state with a massive financial burden of $587 million, N85 billion, and 115 contractual responsibilities.

According to the governor, the state is now struggling to pay salaries as a result of the debt being withdrawn from the Federal Account Allocation Committee (FAAC).

Sani said, “Despite the huge debt burden of $587 million, N85 billion, and 115 contractual liabilities sadly inherited from the previous administration, we remain resolute in steering Kaduna State towards progress and sustainable development.

“We have conducted a thorough assessment of our situation and are sharpening our focus accordingly. It gladdens my heart to inform you that despite the huge inherited debt of the state, to date, we have not borrowed a single kobo.”

Reacting to Sani’s statement, Bashir berated the governor, saying he was looking for a cheap excuse for his incompetence.

Bashir stated this in a statement on his verified X handle on Saturday.

El-Rufai said, “These guys have realized that they are wholly incompetent, and the only way to mask the nonsense is to deflect. From a governor who is always sleeping in Abuja to a litany of incompetent aides who were only rewarded for foolish political reasons,

“One would think that from all the FAAC allocations these unserious clowns have changed to dollars, debt would be the least of their problems,” he said.
