APC suspends Women Leader for defending El-Rufai over N85bn, $587 million Kaduna debt 

 

The Kaduna State chapter of the All Progressives Congress, APC, has suspended the state Women Leader for defending the immediate-past governor Nasir El-Rufai over the recent controversy on the state’s huge debt.

 

NEWS WEEK NIGERIA had earlier reported that Governor Uba Sani on Friday lamented the high debt profile he inherited from his predecessor, Nasir El-Rufai.

Speaking at a town hall meeting on Saturday, Mr Sani said his administration inherited a debt burden of $587 million, N85 billion, and 115 contractual liabilities from the El-Rufai administration.

 

El-Rufai left N85bn, $587m debts, I can’t pay salaries — Kaduna Governor cries out

 

But the state Women Leader felt strongly about the governor’s remark, saying the governor is treacherous as Mr El-Rufai did everything to ensure his success during election.

“If you say there is no money in Kaduna State, why don’t you resign? Notwithstanding the huge debt burden, he ran from pillar to post trying to get the party’s governorship ticket from Mallam [El-Rufai].

 

“It is a clear case of betrayal. Mallam did everything for Uba to become a senator and later governor.

 

As a senator, Uba Sani is the arrowhead of securing loans by El-Rufai administration. He was deeply involved in that,” she said.

But the APC in a letter co-signed by the state chairman and secretary Ali Maishago and Zakka Bassahuwa respectively, the party suspended the woman leader for defamation of character of the governor.

 

The letter reads: “The Badarawa/Malali Ward APC Executive Committee after due deliberations and careful examinations on the viral video clip released on 30th March, 2024 via social networks; Facebook, Whatsapp, and Tiktok which is against the constitution of our dear party APC as stated in article 21.2 (v).

 

“In view of the above, below are the gross misconducts where the subsequent suspension relied upon:

“Unauthorized publicity of the party dispute that discredited the personality of the Executive Governor of Kaduna State.

 

“Furthermore, from today Sunday 31st of March, 2024, the leadership of APC Badarawa/Malali Ward unanimously resolved to suspend Hajiya Maryam Suleiman (Mai Rusau) from the Party pending the further investigation on the matter from the constituted authority.”
