Comrade Timi Frank has blasted Governor Nasir El-Rufai of Kaduna State, for suggesting that former vice-president Atiku Abubakar is corrupt.
El-Rufai and Atiku have been engaging each other in a war of words, after the Turaki Adamawa claimed El-Rufai offered him shares in Transcorp and he rejected it.
Frank, who has sued the All Progressives Congress (APC), for allegedly trying to expel him from the party , says El-Rufai is “an ingrate and a perpetual betrayer”.
The embattled APC spokesperson, insists Atiku propelled El-Rufai into limelight, with an appointment in the Bureau for Public Enterprise (BPE). He also accused the Governor of always betraying his benefactors.
Frank said in a statment released on Wednesday: “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 a matter of time El-Rufai will also betray President Buhari once the president no longer in power.”
“The huge task of governance, which El-Rufai has practically failed woefully in Kaduna, is supposed to be paramount to him instead of deploying his strongest power against Turaki Adamawa, who is far above the governor in all levels.
“Just two days ago, more than 45 innocent citizens of Kaduna lost their lives; immediately El-Rufai launched a bill board in Southern Kaduna apologising for his maladministration.”
Timi Frank also advised President Muhammadu Buhari to be wary of El-Rufai.
