Shehu Sani mocks El-Rufai on being left out of Japan TICAD7 trip

Senator Shehu Sani

Former Senator Shehu Sani has mocked Kaduna State Governor, Nasir el-Rufai, saying it was not his fault that the governor was left out of the trip with President Muhammadu Buhari to Japan.

Sani said this on Thursday in a tweet in reaction to a statement by El-Rufai.


The governor had said on Wednesday that Sani had become a blogger after being kicked out of the Senate.

Sani left the All Progressives Congress (APC) after clashes with El-Rufai to join the Peoples Redemption Party (PRP) where he lost his seat (Kaduna Central) at the National Assembly during the 2019 elections to the APC candidate, Uba Sani.

“We have kicked out Shehu Sani, who has now become a blogger and Uthman Hunkuyi who has now relocated to China with his family for not giving the people of Kaduna State the opportunity of getting the loan that will help in improving the lots of Kaduna people,” El-Rufai had said.

In reaction, Sani claimed El-Rufai attacked him because he was furious about being left out of the trip to Japan for the Seventh Tokyo International Conference on African Development (TICAD7).


“The Governor say he don turn me to a http://blogger. Eh dey pain am they no travel with tam to Japan after he don spend 3 days for Abuja with him http://passport. No be me deny you visa, no be me remove your name put Zullum. Tallman, Make you leave me, face Kyari,” Sani said in Pidgin English.

Governors Babajide Sanwo-Olu, AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq, and Babagana Zulum of Lagos, Kwara and Borno State are the governors who make up Buhari’s entourage to Japan.
