I never discussed el-Rufai’s replacement with Tinubu -Gov. Uba Sani

Share This

Uba Sani, governor of Kaduna state, has denied a trending story on social media that he opposed Nasir el-Rufai’s ministerial nomination from the state.


El-Rufai had been nominated for a ministerial position by President Bola Tinubu but is yet to be cleared by the senate which said there were “adverse” security reports against the former Kaduna governor.


He is said to have met with Tinubu and told him he was no longer interested in being minister and that Jafaru Sani, his former commissioner, should replace him.


Sani, his successor in office, was reported on Saturday to have met Tinubu and rejected Jafaru on the ground that he was a loyalist of el-Rufai.

“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),” the governor told TheCable on Saturday.


“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.”


It is believed that a former senator from the state is planting stories in the media to create the impression of a falling out between Sani and el-Rufai.
