APC Spokesman Attacks Gov. El-Rufai: "Who Gave You The Guts To Insult Atiku?"

The embattled Deputy National Publicity Secretary of the APC, Timi Frank, has described Governor of Kaduna state, Nasir El-Rufai, as “an ingrate and a perpetual betrayer”.

Mr. Frank also called on President Muhammad Buhari to be wary of the governor.

He was reacting to a statement credited to El-Rufai in which he called a former Vice President, Atiku Abubakar, a corrupt politician.

In a statement released in Abuja on Wednesday, Mr Frank said Atiku remained the most investigated politician in the history of Nigerian politics and he has not be found wanting in any of the allegations levelled against him.

Frank wondered where Governor El-Rufai “got the guts” to challenge the man (Atiku) who he said brought El-Rufai to limelight through an appointment at the Bureau for Public Enterprise, BPE.

His words: “El-Rufai’s latest outburst is not surprising because of his antecedent of betraying all his known benefactors both in politics and in private life.

“It is on record that the likes of former President Olusegun Obasanjo will not be surprised because he has once betrayed Baba.

“Former President Goodluck Jonathan, who brought out El-Rufai from exile can’t forget in a hurry how this same man betrayed him. It is only a matter of time for El-Rufai to also betray President Buhari once the president is no longer in power.

“Even if El-Rufai does not respect Atiku as a person he should respect the institution and the position the former Vice President held in this country.”
