– Senator Shehu Sani says Governor Nasir El-Rufai will betray President Muhammadu Buhari after achieving his mission
– Sani accuses El-Rufai of betraying other Nigerian leaders and his former bosses before pitching tents with Buhari
– The Senator also predicts that APC may cease to exist after Buhari or that the party will become a regional organisation
Senator Shehu Sani representing Kaduna central at the National Assembly, has warned that the governor of Kaduna state, Nasir El-Rufai, will betray President Muhammadu Buhari just like he allegedly betrayed others before him.
Sani also alleged that El-Rufai was only using Buhari, who he does not fear or respect, to achieve his mission, after which the governor would turn his back on the president.
According to Sani, if El-Rufai could betray his former bosses including Atiku Abubakar, Olusegun Obasanjo; Umaru Musa Yar’Adua and Goodluck Jonathan, then nothing stops him from doing same to Buhari.
In an interview he granted Daily Independent, Sani said: “Well, it is very clear that President Buhari cannot control El-Rufai.
“Mr President is totally incapable of calling him to caution, if not, a number of things would not have happened. El-Rufai has no respect for President Muhammadu Buhari. He is simply using the president. And he will turn against Buhari but not now.
“He will do so after he has gotten what he wanted from the president which is second term. When Buhari is no longer of political value to him, he will turn his back on the president.
“If he can turn his back on the former Vice President Atiku Abubakar, turn his back against former President Olusegun Obasanjo; turn his back against former presidents Umaru Musa Yar’Adua and Goodluck Jonathan, nothing will make the case of Buhari different. All these personalities are his bosses. Then you can predict what is ahead.
“So l am of the belief that Buhari will not know his friends and his enemies until when he is out of power. One day president Buhari will sit down in his living room, watching the television and seeing how those people he hold in high esteem, people he so much respect and believe in, people who have so much benefited from him, will turn against him.
“I am very certain that this will not happen later but sooner. And l am also very confident that APC will not last beyond Buhari’s presidency. If at this very time when Buhari is alive as a sitting president you can see how state governors and the national chairman of the party are exchanging crossfire and are at war with each other publicly and neither the president nor anybody can call them to caution.
“This is to show you what will happen when Buhari’s time is up as a president. APC will either restrict itself to a regional party either in the South West or it will seize to exist as a political party. Right now, there is so much chaos and confusion, disorder and anarchy in the APC,” he said.
