Senator Sani Shehu has come for the Governor of Kaduna State, Nasir El-Rufai after his recent claims that the Peoples Democratic Party rented their campaign crowd from Niger Republic.
The charismatic lawmaker advised the All Progressives Congress to rent their campaign crowd from Sudan.
On his verified Twitter handle, Sen Sani said, “They rent theirs from Niger because of proximity; You can rent yours from Sudan because of affinity.”
The subtle message in the senator’s response can’t be lost on the governor following widespread rumour that President Muhammadu Buhari’s alleged body-double is a certain Jubrin from Sudan.
El-Rufai had on Tuesday during the inauguration of 69-member Kaduna APC Campaign Council said, “Thieves have ganged-up against President Muhammadu Buhari. Yesterday, they were in Sokoto and they rented a crowd from Niger Republic just to show people that they have supporters because Sokoto people refused to come out.
“So, when it is time to launch President Muhammadu Buhari’s campaign in Kaduna, people should come for the whole world to see that it is not Niger Republic people that are disguising as Nigerians.”
Shehu and El-Rufai have been at loggerheads since 2015 over control of the party in Kaduna and the former’s political ambition.
