Senator Shehu Sani of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, has prophesied that Nasir El-Rufai, the former governor of Kaduna State, will cause friction between President Bola Tinubu and his vice, Kashim Shettima.
During a recent appearance on the esteemed Arise Television program, the ex-legislator eloquently attributed the ongoing clash between the esteemed former president, Olusegun Obasanjo, and his esteemed vice, Atiku Abubakar, to the influential figure of El-Rufai. It is worth noting that El-Rufai had previously served as a minister during their shared administration.
In a thought-provoking analysis, Sani expressed his view that El-Rufai, a nominee for a ministerial position, embodies a metaphorical serpent introduced into the current administration. He emphasized the potential for this former governor to sow discord among the president, his esteemed cabinet, and the esteemed state governors, thereby instigating a state of chaos.
The individual in question posed the following inquiry: “Was he, referring to El-Rufai, not occupying the esteemed position of Minister during the period when contentious matters arose between Obasanjo and Atiku?” The forthcoming outcome shall bear an uncanny resemblance to its predecessor, for there exists an undeniable continuity in the trajectory of events. In the event of any discernible disharmony between President Tinubu and Shettima, it is imperative to acknowledge that the genesis of such a schism can be attributed to a singular individual.
In the event that any semblance of disharmony arises between the esteemed President and the distinguished members of his esteemed cabinet, it is imperative to acknowledge that the President himself shall remain the primary instigator of said disharmony. With an illustrious history and an impressive track record, he stands as a paragon of achievement and accomplishment.
The assertion at hand is not a mere prophetic statement, but rather an incontrovertible reality rooted in historical events. It is with utmost conviction that I declare that a serpent, metaphorically speaking, has been introduced into the very fabric of their governing body. The consequences of their actions shall inevitably befall them, as they shall bear the burden of their decisions.
In a sagacious counsel, he duly implored the esteemed president to exercise utmost vigilance, asserting that any member of his esteemed cabinet who falls short of the anticipated standards ought to be expeditiously relieved of their duties and promptly succeeded.
