Gov Uba Sani Recommended El-Rufai’s Replacement? Fresh Fact Emerges

Aug 12, 2023 | Entertainment, News


FCT, Abuja The governor of Kaduna State, Sani Uba, has dismissed rumours linked to him that he opposed the ministerial nomination of his predecessor, ex-governor Nasir E-Rufai.

Recall that El-Rufai was enlisted in the ministerial nominees list President Bola Ahmed Tinubu submitted for screening and clearance.

Ironically, the ex-Kaduna governor was not cleared alongside two other ministerial nominees whose screening was halted due to a series of petitions against them.

How El-Rufai was frustrated out of ministerial slot

In the case of El-Rufai, his clearance was halted due to a series of security reports against the former Kaduna governor.

Meanwhile, a follow-up report confirmed that El-Rufai held a private meeting with President Bola Ahmed Tinubu, where he announced that he was no longer interested in being a member of his cabinet.

It was also gathered that El-Rufai recommended Jafaru Sani, his former commissioner, to take his slot, a move that was rumoured to have been rejected by Governor Uba due to Sani’s loyalty to El-Rufai.

While reacting to the allegation, Governor Uba said:

“The only thing that is true in the story is that I met with the president. Every other thing is false and a conjecture to create friction between me and Mallam (el-Rufai)

“I went to see the president specifically because I was worried by the turn of events. I believe both of them mean well for the country.

“At no time did we discuss the issue of replacement. That is the least of my worries.

“If indeed Mallam wants to nominate a replacement, I will never oppose his choice. We are on the same page. Those who know us very well know that this is all lies. We know where the disinformation is coming from but we are not bothered.”

However, there are also speculations that Governor Uba has been deliberately sponsoring rumours in the media as a decoy to think he and his former principal are in a heated feud.
