Shehu Sani, the Immediate past senator who represented Kaduna Central in the 8th Senate has lambasted Governor Nasir El-Rufai for enrolling his son in a public school, calling it a political stunt for 2023
He further said the action is not only clownish, comical but also deceptive. Sani while addressing pressmen in Kaduna, said the governor’s moves are meant to deceive the people especially Kaduna citizens. His words
“His action was simply a 2023 political stunt set up for the media and people who reside outside Kaduna.
For people who reside in Kaduna, they know what public primary school looks like in the state, they know where they are located and the problems they are facing.”
“It is not because I have a political difference with him, no, but for whoever lives in Kaduna state knew that what the governor did with his son by enrolling him into public school was just a comedy.
The enbattled former sanetor went ahead to spit on the governor by saying he should have rather upgraded all schools in Kaduna State stating public school doesn’t mean primary schools alone, as there are public secondary schools and public universities as well.
“He would have done better by upgrading schools in Kaduna, you cannot spend N195m in a particular school and then take your son and the media to that school and think you have done anything differently.
“Let me tell you, we had a governor in this state, Balarabe Musa, who has never lived in government house during his reign and all that while he was a governor he lived in his private house and I also know that the children of former governor Ahmed Makarfi attended this same Capital School.
I also know that other public officials’ children go to that school too. So if you are not been corny, deceptive and comical, you would have allowed all your children to enrol in public schools.
“We have Kaduna State University, KASU which is a public University and we have several public secondary schools in the state.
During Sallah, we saw the governor with a lot of his children and all of a sudden, you picked one of them and said oh, take him to Capital School,
I think the governor is becoming a bad representation of Baba Sala, I Go Die and Basket Mouth, a kind of comedy situation.”
“He is not new in this kind of drama. It was the same person who was moving around Kaduna—Abuja road and he went with cameras that he was chasing kidnappers, so this is a new script but as far as am concerned, that is a comedy.
Since we are in an era in this state of using public utilities, public hospitals, and now public schools, so it is also in order that public officials, both elected and appointed should also patronize public toilets in Kaduna.
That is the highest form of patriotism and selfless service. You should use what the masses are using which is public toilets.
“As a governor of the state and as a leader, if it is good to patronize public schools by public servants, politicians and all of us should patronize public toilets like the one that is not far away from my office.”
