Senator Shehu Sani walks out on Governor El-Rufai


Senator Shehu Sani on Thursday, walked out of an event in Kaduna to protest the presence of Governor Nasir El-Rufai.

According to Premium Times, the lawmaker representing Kaduna Central, left the launching of the Kaduna Zonal office of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) at Wurno Road Premium Times.

The EFCC had invited both the Senator and the Governor to the event, but Sani drove out of the venue when he noticed El-Rufai’s presence.
“I honoured the invitation to launch the zonal office of the EFCC and to participate in a stakeholders forum.

“I don’t think someone invited in this event fits into the philosophy and principles of the EFCC.

“I don’t know how the EFCC can squarely investigate corruption cases in Kaduna with some of this characters cutting the tape of their new abode,” Sani said.

Other dignitaries who attended the event are the Senator representing Kaduna North, Sulaiman Hunkuyi, immediate past Governor of the state, Ramalan Yero, the EFCC chairman Ibrahim Magu and the representative of Shehu Idris, the Emir of Zazzau, among others.
