A group, Kaduna Progressive People Forum, (KPPF), has alleged that, the Kaduna State governor Nasir El-Rufai is on the verge of destroying the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the state, and therefore called on President Muhammadu Buhari, to act fast by intervening in the crisis brewing in the party.
The group in a statement cosigned by the President, Dr Abdullahi Usman, Arch. Marcel Guntu, Secretary and Haj. Maimuna Ibrahim, Public Relations Officer (PRO), titled, “A Call On Gov. Nasiru El-rufai To Stop Name Dropping And Embarrassing President Muhammadu Buhari”, urged the President and the party leadership to take action before is too late.
The statement reads;
“We wish to call on the kaduna state governor, mallam Nasiru El-Rufai to please stop embarrassing our President, Mohammadu Buhari with his frequent name-droppings.
“It is on record that Nasiru El-Rufai who hitherto insulted, maligned and called President Buhari an uneluctable candidate has the habit of name-dropping President Buhari with every given opportunity. On numerous occasions, this has backfired and causes a lot of embarrassment to the person of President Mohammadu Buhari.
“The most recent issue that comes to mind is El-Rufai’s purported claims in a memo he deliberately and mischievously leaked to the press, that President Buhari once instructed him to deal with Sen. Shehu Sani by initiating moves for the recall of the vibrant Senator.
“At this juncture, let us pause and commend the presidency for coming out clean on the most recent episode. Before now, many have innocently fallen for El-Rufai’s name-dropping tricks. But with the recent open denial of involvement by the President, people will now understand and come to terms with the fact that the maverick governor was as usual, up to his deceitful and mischievous acts not minding the negative impact or embarrassments it might cause the president.
“We wish to also use this opportunity to alert Mr President that Gov. Nasiru El-Rufai is on the verge of destroying the APC in kaduna state. His quest for power for himself and his cronies at all costs is jeopardizing the chances of APC, and by extension President Mohammadu Buhari in kaduna state which is one of his strong holds. El-Rufai’s high handedness, autocracy and misrule in kaduna state is making the masses to lose confidence in the APC and therefore seeking solace in other political parties, especially the main opposition party, PDP.
“Just recently, his hatchet man and close alley, whom he wanted to be a Senator against the wish of the people committed the dastardly act of taking the party to court without making any efforts to resolve his grouse internally within the party. This same individual is responsible for the lose of many APC stalwarts to other parties and the deep rooted division we have in kaduna state APC.
“Consequently, we are calling on Mr President and the National Leadership of the APC to take action before its too late. Kaduna state is one state APC cannot afford to lose. A stitch in time, they say, saves nine.”
