Saraki Describe El-Rufai As Careless Talker
El-Rufai, made this known during an interview on several local radio stations in Kaduna on Thursday, Thecable reports.
Saraki, was attacked by the Governor for listing some members of the ruling All Progressives Congress among those that defected to the Peoples Democratic Party on Tuesday.
He stated that lawmakers who defected got their position through the support of President Muhammadu Buhari.
The governor said, “We have never had a bad senate leadership like this one by Bukola Saraki. Some people whose names were mentioned among those who defected said they never authorised it.
“We know those who cannot win elections in their homes. Many of them found themselves in the National Assembly by riding on the back of Buhari.
“Some of them won the elections because the presidential and parliamentary elections held on the same day.”
The Senate President while responding to El-Rufai’s claim stated that he is a careless talker, revealing that he couldn’t have announced that names of the defectors without them signing the letter communicating their defection to PDP.
Speaking through his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Mr. Yusuph Olaniyonu, the Senate President said, “El-Rufai is a known careless talker. He is a man suffering from diarrhoea of the mouth. You (one of our correspondents) report the National Assembly on a daily basis. Is it possible for the name of a senator to be announced as having defected without him or her signing the letter communicating same to the Senate President?”
“We challenge el-Rufai to mention the name of any senator whose name was announced without his or her consent. He (el-Rufai) is a divisive element, an expert hero worshipper and noisemaker.”
“He worshipped (former President Olusegun) Obasanjo once the way he is now worshipping (President Muhammadu) Buhari, and now he is on the forefront of abusing the former President. It will soon be the turn of Buhari to be rubbished by el-Rufai. He did the same to ex-Vice President Atiku (Abubakar).”
