‘Like Judas, El-Rufai betrayed Obasanjo, Atiku,’ APC chieftain cautions Presidency

President Muhammadu Buhari and Kaduna State Governor, Nasir El-Rufai.

A chieftain of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), Comrade Timi Frank has cautioned the Presidency ‘not to fall to the antics’ of Governor Nasir El-rufai of Kaduna state.

Reacting to comments attributed to the Women Affairs Minister, Aisha Alhassan, Frank noted that El-Rufai has record of betraying all his benefactors.
Frank also warned that the claim by the governor of a 'Buharist' group amounts to disservice to some other Nigerians who truly love the President.

In a statement in Abuja on Saturday, September 9, 2017, Frank described Mama Taraba’s ‘endorsement’ of former vice president, Atiku Abubakar for the 2019 Presidency as show of ‘honesty and not a disrespect for President Buhari.’
His words:“The President Buhari I know is a man of the people. The President knows people who are truly his own and when people are talking of loyalty, El-rufai should keep quiet because he is not known to be one. A serial betrayer like this governor has no record of loyalty to anybody.

"Governor El-rufai does not have electoral value and credibility to force the President to contest in 2019. Buhari is in best position to take such decision by himself.”

Frank alleged that El-Rufai was doing all that to blackmail the President into his endorsement should Buhari not seek re-election in 2019.

"When Nigerians were busy praying for safe return of Mr President from his medical leave to London some months back, it was alleged that the likes of El-rufai were busy scheming on how to become the Vice President.

"El-rufai is known for singing sycophantic praises to whoever is in government. He did it to former President Olusegun Obasenjo and later abandoned him. He did it to Alhaji Atiku, who brought him to limelight, and again turned to his enemy.

“He has even repeated this same act against President Muhammadu Buhari, who El-rufai said would never become President. The record is there for everybody to see. He will do it again once Buhari leaves government.

"Maybe, El-rufai was expecting Mama Taraba to become selfish, self-centered, arrogant and turn Judas like him, and turn her back against Atiku Abubakar who will always stand by her again and again politically,"
he added.

Frank also recalled that the same El-rufai had late last year written a lengthy lamentation letter to the President which was later made public.
