Kaduna controversy: Why I won’t reply El-Rufai’s son

The governor of Kaduna State, Uba Sani, has reacted to the allegations levied against him by  Bashir El-Rufai, who accused him of shying away from his responsibility by always staying away from the state and hibernating in the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) Abuja.

Bashir made this accusation hours after the state governor accused the immediate past governor, Nasir El-Rufai of leaving a huge debt of $587m, N85bn debts and 115 contract liabilities for the state, making it difficult for him to pay salaries.
