El-Rufai-Sani Rift: Lukman urges APC’s intervention

Share this article

A former National Vice Chairman (North West) of the APC, Salihu Mohammed Lukman, has urged the party leadership to intervene in the escalating feud between former Kaduna State Governor Nasir El-Rufai and the incumbent governor, Ubah Sani.

Lukman expressed concern over the rift, stating, “That shortly after taking over, the two friends are falling apart is most unfortunate and only reminds one of what played out between Alhaji Ahmed Mohammed Makarfi and Arc. Namadi Sambo between 2007 and 2010.”

He highlighted the role of party leaders in resolving such disputes, emphasizing the need for intervention to strengthen state governments’ governance capacity.

Lukman called on all APC members in Kaduna to take responsibility for the state’s challenges and urged Governor Sani to undertake an inventory of the state’s debt and its utilization.

The call for intervention comes amid claims by Governor Sani of inheriting a significant debt burden from El-Rufai’s administration, prompting a response from El-Rufai’s son, Bashir, who accused the governor of incompetence.

Lukman’s statement underscores broader concerns within the APC about internal conflicts and governance issues in several states, including Benue, Ebonyi, and Cross River.
