Alhassan VS El-Rufai: Nigerians Say Buhari Must Speak Out, Says Silence, No Longer Golden

Few days ago, the Minister for Women Affairs, Aisha Allhassan openly indicated her preference for former vice President, Atiku Abubakar as President over President Buhari’s come back.

As a result, the Kaduna state Governor fired back at he service minister calling her name adding that she had never been  friend of Buhari or was she friend of APC and that she does not derve te ministerial appointment in the first instance.

As a further reaction to El-Rufai’s statement on her, the embattled Minister of Women Affairs, Aisha Alhassan threatened to expose Kaduna State Governor, Mallam Nasir El-Rufai and his roles in Chibok girls’ kidnapping.

The Minister said she was surprised that a dirty character like Elrufai could even have the gut to comment against her preference for Alhaji Atiku Abubakar for 2019 Presidential race.

She said: “There are lot of things Nigerians needs to know about the planning and execution of Chibok girls’ kidnapping because those behind it will be unmasked very soon. The intention was very obvious, to defame and blackmail PDP and Jonathan out of power.

The Minister became angry by the comment credited to El-Rufai where he was quoted as saying that Buhari was severely warned not to appoint Aisha Alhassan as Minister.

Mallam El-Rufai said Aisha Alhassan’s leaved Video, an indication that she has never been loyal to President Buhari from day one, noting that her loyalty lies with someone who is not even ready to support the party to success just because the person also want to become a president

In her response, Aisha said those who know history well could tell about the treacherous nature of El-Rufai who can go to any length to stab anyone just to rise politically; she said El-Rufai was a Nobody who was as poor as church rat if not for Atiku that brought him to political relevance.

The same El-Rufai was among those who plotted against Jonathan by tactically supporting Boko Haram and Kidnapping of Chibok girls, the information is out there where he lied that Jonathan wanted to kill him and other top members of APC by raising a false alarm about sniper list. No sane Nigerian will take El-Rufai serious because he is an unrepentant addicted liar.

The same El-Rufai who claimed to be loyal to president is sponsoring some bloggers and his errand boys in the media to keep attacking and defaming Buhari, at least Nigerians and our party can see his deliberate action to blackmail the President when he released his memo to the media which was supposed to be a confidential memo to the President in his bid to tarnish and embarrass Baba Buhari.

“I am not a coward, Buhari is my President and one of the fathers of my party APC, if I can’t be real with my choice of Atiku, then it would amount to eye service, I am not that kind of person.”

Former President Obasanjo had earlier in his book “My Watch” gave a description of who the midget El-Rufai is and that he thrives on stabbing the hands that fed him just to rise politically, he can lie and kill so far he will rise in his political career not minding the pain he is inflicting on others, one of such is his supervision of mass killing and hurriedly burying of over 1,000 Shiites killed in Kaduna.

“I will personally meet with President Buhari and explain myself to him, I am not afraid of anybody in the party, after all I am a politician, for those who have gone ahead to plant a corruption story about me in the media, you are just wasting your time, she added.

In view of these our correspondents went out to seek peoples view on the matter and the consensus opinion is that since Aisha and Alhassan are no children and are big weights in the political terrain, the issues raised cannot be child’s play and must be investigated.

Chief Bayo Ifabiyi, Kwara State Coordinator of Oodua People’s Congress said for people of that caliber to raise issues of such national importance, there is need for thorough investigation.

He said “Boko Haram issue had been a nightmare, with accusations and counter accusations. Some people even finger President Buhari too. The Nigerian massed are kept in the dark, Buhari should come out and comment before the matter further degenerates. There are ties when silence is golden over issues, but this one, silence is not golden, the people need clarifications and heads must roll of need be.”


Another public affairs commentator Dapo Obanro of Pathfinders International too was of the opinion that the government of President Muhamadu Buhari had previously promised to unravel those behind Boko Haram. He questions “why did he not do so speedily to curb the further massacre by the faceless people. Now we have an ample opportunity to expose the Boko aram people and their sponsors, Buhari should come out and tell us exactly what happens in the Chibok girls issue.”

In a matter of days, reactions will filter the political atmosphere and perhaps a removal or hoodwinking of Aisha Alhasan will face persecution from particularly her party mates.
