OrderPaperToday – The political rivalry between Governor Nasir El-rufai and Senator Shehu Sani is getting more messy as the latter has accused the former of plotting to take over the job of President Muhammadu Buhari.

In an interview with the Interview magazine, Sani said the Kaduna governor is “thinking of removing President Muhammadu Buhari.”

The Senator however warned El-rufai to halt his scheming and face his job as chief executive of Kaduna state, stressing that he would not hesitate to stop the governor in his tracks.

Both men have been locked in a battle of political supremacy connected to 2019 and the state chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has been made a pawn for the struggle. The party had some time ago, suspended the senator, allegedly at the prompting of the governor, although the suspension did not stand at the end of the day.

But speaking in the March edition of The Interview magazine, Sani said: “It would be counter-productive for the governor to start thinking of evicting Buhari in 2019 to be the President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.

“El-Rufai should do his job and stop putting his eyes on the presidency.”
