El Rufa'i’s son to Tinubu

Says “IMF, World Bank won’t save him

Bashir el-Rufa’i, a son to the immediate past governor of Kaduna State, Nasir el-Rufa’i has claimed that no institution, locally or internationally, can stop the incumbent government from “being voted out of office” making an allusion to President Bola Tinubu.

Bashir, who mentioned this in a series of tweets yesterday, maintained that even if the President had the backing of the International Monetary Fund (IMF) and the World Bank, the people of the country would vote against him after the expiration of his first tenure.

He said, “Nobody is too big to be elected out of office by the people. It will happen & wallahi, nothing will happen. So, forget all these intimidations flying up and down. Let us be patient.

“Even IMF & World Bank no go save una that time. Political strategist una. That one na for Lagos.”

“I didn’t call names o… but due to their guilt, they already know who is being spoken about. Wallahi, none of you will force anyone to support this utter failure of governance disguised as useless, dangerous ethno-centric political strategy”, he added.

Bashir’s father, Nasir el-Rufa’i was among the ardent supporters of Tinubu during the 2023 general election, but things started to fall apart between them when the former Governor’s name was screened-out of the ministerial list.  His successor, Uba Sani,  while addressing a Town Hall Meeting at the Late Umaru Musa Yar’Adua Hall, Kaduna in March, had also lamented the huge debts inherited from Nasir el-Rufa’i.

Sani said the State is now left with a few amounts, not enough to pay salary. He had added that his administration inherited a total of $587million, N85billion, and 115 contract liabilities from the ex-governor.

Despite this, he said he had to borrow money in the last nine months of his government, noting that the huge debt burden was eating deep into the State’s Federal allocation.

The Governor stressed that due to the rise in the exchange rate, he was paying back almost triple of what was borrowed by the administration of Nasir el-Rufa’i.
