President Muhammadu Buhari has been accused of abandoning all his good friends because of Governor of Kaduna State, Nasir El-Rufai.
Former lawmaker, Senator Shehu Sani made the claim on Tuesday while reacting to the outburst of the governor against President Buhari over the presidential election issues.
Speaking In an interview on Tuesday with Daily Post, Sani claimed that El-Rufai has gotten all he needs from Buhari hence the president is no longer useful to him.
He explained that Buhari’s power and influence in the political field has come to end.
He wrote: “Buhari should expect more attacks and open and direct insults from Elrufai for three reasons.
“El-Rufai’s loyalty to Buhari has expired. He has gotten everything he wanted from Buhari, and Buhari is no more useful to him.
“Buhari’s power and influence in politics has come to an end; El-Rufai has shifted camp to Tinubu.
El-Rufai is serving Buhari the venom of his real self.
“Buhari abandoned all his good friends who served and sacrificed for him over the years in Kaduna because of his love for El-Rufai. We warned him against El-Rufai but he ignored; it’s time for Buhari to know that what he incubated and elevated is not a millipede or centipede but a serpent.”
Speaking further, Sani stated that he has always known that El-Rufai’s love for Buhari was not real.
He argued that he knew the day would come when El-Rufai would show his true colors and abandon the companionship he shared with the president.
He went on to advise the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Tinubu to be wary of the governor as his loyalty cannot be trusted.
“El-Rrufai spent 8 years praising Buhari and Buhari spent 8 years praising El-Rufai each time he came to Kaduna; Buhari trusted keeping a scorpion close to his groin.
“Tinubu should be careful with El-Rufai. El-Rufai’s preference was Amaechi and not Tinubu. Kaduna APC delegates voted for Amaechi and not Tinubu.
“Tinubu should be careful so that El-Rufai should not drag him to start fighting with people whom he ordinarily should have no reason to fight. El-rufai will create more enemies for Tinubu than friends.
“El-Rufai is a friend and beneficiary of the CBN Governor. His fight against cashless policies is not about the common people; it’s about the fear of losing power.
“El-Rufai is never a man for the poor and he will never be”, he concluded.
