The ‘Akida’ faction of the All Progressives Congress, APC, in Kaduna State, has said that Governor Nasir el- Rufa’i lacks the moral justification to criticize President Muhammadu Buhari.
The group noted that if el-Rufa’i could tell them to go and climb Kufena mountain when they complained about the appointments he (el-Rufa’i) made in Kaduna state, then the 30-page Memo he sent to President Muhammadu Buhari is like one from a leper full of sins.
In a press statement issued in Kaduna, the Chairman of the APC Akida, Mr. Tom Mataimaki Maiyashi, said the el-Rufai’s Memo to Buhari in which he kept mentioning specific people in the president’s cabinet as unfit, incompetent and clueless, was not only wicked, but did not match the aspirations and yearning of Nigerians.
“In our view, knowing the role Mr. President played and his integrity, Nasir el-Rufa’i wouldn’t have become the governor of Kaduna State.
“El-Rufai’s Memo is a total disrespect, shocking and clueless. How could el-Rufa’i write such a Memo to Mr. President when he is doing nothing in Kaduna State?
“Look at gutters all over the state, I wonder if that is a mark of progress in our state,” Maiyashi noted.
He further states that, ”Someone who claims to be holier than thou asked us to go and climb Kufena Mountain and jump down if we are not satisfied with his appointments. He even said we are ants he can crush with his iron shoes.
“el-Rufa’i muzzles and pounds us. Can such a person correct Mr.President? This is the height of disrespect, arrogance and deceit.”
The group noted that, “Nasir el-Rufa’i should first change himself. It is the integrity of Mr. President that makes him to be a governor today. Malam Nasir el-Rufa’i can never be a role model of proper conduct.
“So, for him to tell Mr. President what to do in his administration is unfortunate. He should have been the least to criticise Buhari.
The group concluded that el-Rufa’i had proven to be someone who was not prepared to listen to others, rather, he has shown himself to be Mr. Intelligent.
“It was in that psychology he wrote that Memo because he thinks he understands and knows all”, Maiyashi said.
