The Chief of the All Progressives Congress also believed the Jonathan-led government has reduced Nigeria to a laughing stock in the comity of nations.
In an interview with SaharaTV on Tuesday, El-Rufai while responding to a question on the insinuation that the President was against Mallam Lamido Sanusi being installed as the Emir Kano, said “Unfortunately we have a president who is petty.
When God has elevated you to the position of being the President, how can you stoop so low as to be concerned about who becomes the Emir of one part of the country which you govern.” “Unfortunately, he descended to that level; it is so sad, and it is a reflection of the kind of people we have running our country. The Federal Government did everything to frustrate Sanusi Lamido as Central Bank Governor, removed him abruptly from office, and got people to publish fictitious stories about him. “ El-Rufai argued that all these happened because someone had the courage to say money was being stolen from the country’s treasury and calling on the authorities to investigate and people asked to account for it. He added, “When God is set to elevate you, no one can bring you down. Whether Jonathan likes it or not, Sanusi is the Emir of Kano.”
