Nasir El-Rufai, Governor Of Kaduna State, has accused Bukola Saraki, the Senate President, of providing the worst leadership at the Senate since Nigeria returned to democracy in 1999.
The Cable reports that Governor Rufai, who spoke on a radio show on Thursday, lambasted Saraki for mentioning names of some Senators who debunked their said defection from the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, as earlier announced by him (Saraki).
He also accused the some of the decamped APC lawmakers of not having electoral value, stating that most of them relied on President Muhammadu Buhari’s political appeal to get elected.
Governor El-Rufai 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.”
Senator Saraki has not publicly declared if he will join ranks and cross over back to the Peoples’ Democratic Party, PDP, the party which majority of his former APC colleagues defected to
