A senator representing Kaduna Central, Shehu Sani, has dared Kaduna State governor, Nasir El-Rufai’s challenge for opponents of his government’s policies to climb Kufena Rock and fall.
Senator Sani criticized December last year’s Kaduna Concert, describing it as “shameful, disgraceful, irresponsible and utterly insensitive that at this sorrowful and mournful season of bloodshed and economic difficulties, the Kaduna state Government and so called ‘banks and the private sector’ have jointly decided to feast, make merry and dance on the graves of victims of Boko Haram armed insurgency in the North.”
But Governor El-Rufai dismissed critics of the concert, alluding that those against the concert should climb the rock and fall.
On Monday, Senator Sani posted his pictures climbing the rock, implying that he took the challenge thrown by his governor.
“Today I visited and climbed Kufena mountain but I’m back home safe; a good tourist site; I hope you will find time to visit and climb too,” he wrote on his Facebook page.
It is however unclear if Senator Sani had strictly adhered to the governor’s challenge by jumping down from the rock after climbing.
