The ongoing war of words between Kaduna State Governor Nasir El-Rufai and Senator Shehu Sani, has taken a new twist.

Sani on Wednesday accused Governor Nasir El-Rufai of tyranny, describing him as a ‘military administrator.’

The All Progressives Congress (APC) lawmaker also reacting to the demolition of the APC faction secretariat, a building belonging to Senator Suleiman Hunkuyi, in Kaduna State, said El-Rufai is only angered by his suspension.

An aftermath of crisis rocking APC in Kaduna State saw the emergence of a faction formed by members loyal to the two suspended APC Senators Suleiman Hunkuyi and Shehu Sani.

The new faction opened a new State party Secretariat at 11B Sambo close in the state but the building housing the secretariat was demolished on Tuesday, February 20.

Sani, who is representing Kaduna Central at the Red Chambers on Wednesday pointed accusing fingers at Governor El-Rufai over the demolition.

“What is happening in Kaduna is simply tyranny. We don’t have an elected governor we have a military administrator, one who thinks that everything should go his own way.

“He engineered the party to suspend us, to suspend me. That is about a year and half ago. When the suspension (El-Rufai’s suspension) came, he became very angry moving about bulldozers to bring down buildings,” he said.

Sani also said that the appointment of Bola Tinubu as Chairman of the party’s reconciliation committee ahead of the 2019 elections will only be successful if governors cooperate with Tinubu.

He also debunked claims that he has the ambition to become Kaduna State governor for constantly criticising El-Rufai.
