A chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Senator Shehu Sani, has predicted that the former governor of Kaduna State, Nasir El-Rufai, may cause issues between President Bola Tinubu and his vice, Kashim Shettima.
Speaking on Arise Television show on Friday, the former lawmaker ascribed the face-off between former president Olusegun Obasanjo and hs vice, Atiku Abubakar, to El-Rufai, who served as a minister during the administration.
Sani opined that El-Rufai, a ministerial nominee, “is a serpent brought into the present administration, stressing that the former governor would cause chaos between then president, his cabinet and state governors.
He said, “Was he (El-Rufai) not a Minister when issues came up between Obasanjo and Atiku? It is going to be the same thing. If you see any discord between President Tinubu and Shettima, the same person caused it.
“If you see any discord between Mr president and members of his cabinet, he is still going to be the person that planted that discord. He has that history and track record.
“This is not a prophecy but a proven fact of what had happened, so I am saying that they have brought a serpent into their government. And they are going to pay the price for it”.
He, however, advised the president to be watchful, saying any of his cabinet who fails to meet expectations should be removed and replaced.
