A former senator who represented Kaduna Central Senatorial District in the 8th Senate, Shehu Sani has asked senators of the 10th National Assembly not to confirm the former Governor of Kaduna State, Malam Nasir El-Rufai as minister.

Sani in a statement he issued on Sunday expressed surprise that El-Rufai’s name was listed as a ministerial nominee despite his alleged religious intolerance that is dangerous to the unity of the nation.


He asked the three senators from Kaduna not to confirm the former governor for the sake of posterity.

Sani reminded the senators of the need to respect the Senator Abubakar Sodangi-led committee which banned El-Rufai from holding public office.

The statement reads: “The Senate should uphold and respect the 2008 Senator Sodangi Committee that barred him from holding public office.

“Particularly the three senators from Kaduna State; they must categorically and unambiguously reject El-Rufai’s nomination.

“Silence is a great disservice and betrayal of the people of Kaduna state who have suffered under his eight years of tyranny and persecution.

“Nigerian senators should save the country from the danger and jeopardy of harbouring, incubating and crowning such a man into the palace of power.

“A man with a track record of religious intolerance, extremism and disrespect for rule of law doesn’t deserve the gavel of approval from the legislature. He doesn’t deserve to be a minister.

“Any opposition senator that confirms El-Rufai has betrayed the moral conscience of the people of this country; any ruling party senator that confirms El-Rufai has brought in a destructive agent into the government of Tinubu.

“Confirming El-Rufai as a minister is a suicidal mission for the Tinubu administration.”
