Shehu Sani, the Senator who represented Kaduna Central in the 8th national Assembly, has described Governor Nasir El-Rufai as a little Hitler and “accidental governor with no civil service experience other than subservience to any person in power.”
In a statement the Senator personally sent to DAILY NIGERIAN, Mr Sani was apparently reacting to comments made by the governor on his Twitter handle on Thursday.
DAILY NIGERIAN recalled that when the news of minimum wage payment by Governor Nasir El-Rufai broke, the Senator took to his Twitter handle to express his reservations over the development.
Mr Sani said that any payment of minimum wage by any state not in accordance with the template of the new minimum wage act is simply a fraud.
According to the Senator, selective, manipulative and dubious payment is simply a deceit.
He, therefore, called on the people to confirm full compliance from the NLC & the TUC first, not from politicians.
However, apparently angered by Mr Sani’s comment, a Twitter user who simply identify himself as Saifu Kajuru called on Mr El-Rufai to, “please start paying @ShehuSani minimum wage so that he can use it and buy some sense!”
Responding, Mr El-Rufai said: “[it is] uncertain whether he is good enough to be employed by the Kaduna State Civil Service Commission!”
In a swift reaction on Friday, the senator described the governor as, “a rabidly ambitious pigmy with speciality in deceit and drama.
“A patented traitor and leech on the throne of power. A certified religious bigot and attested ethnic irredentist; a poison in the pack of a toothpaste.
“A little Hitler, a fake progressive with a honour as minute as his height. El-rufai is angry the villa dropped his name from UNGA in New York,” Mr Sani wrote.
