Bashir El-Rufai, the son of former Kaduna State Governor Nasir El-Rufai, has launched a scathing attack on Governor Uba Sani, accusing him of incompetence and poor performance.

His remarks came in response to comments made by Governor Sani regarding the financial situation inherited from the previous administration.


Addressing a town hall meeting in Kaduna, Governor Sani revealed that his administration inherited a substantial debt burden of $587 million, N85 billion, and 115 contractual liabilities from the El-Rufai administration. He lamented that this debt was significantly impacting the state’s federal allocation, with a large portion of funds being used for debt servicing.

In a series of posts on social media platform X, Bashir El-Rufai criticized Governor Sani for surrounding himself with incompetent aides appointed for political patronage. He accused the current administration of deflecting blame instead of addressing its own shortcomings.

El-Rufai questioned the wisdom of Governor Sani in allocating funds for the construction of a banquet hall worth N7 billion while simultaneously lamenting about debt inherited from the previous administration.

He highlighted the irony of Governor Sani’s statements, particularly in light of his role as a former senator from Kaduna who lobbied for and approved the loans in question.

El-Rufai’s tweets have sparked a wave of reactions, with supporters of the governor defending his actions while El-Rufai’s loyalists have criticized Governor Sani for his handling of the state’s finances.

The exchange between El-Rufai and Governor Sani underscores the political tensions and divisions within Kaduna State, with both sides vehemently defending their positions amidst growing scrutiny over the state’s financial management.
