Shehu Sani reacts to Kaduna’s debts, says I’m vindicated

Former Kaduna Central Senator Shehu Sani says he is now vindicated in his severe condemnation of the loans taken by the immediate prior administration in the state.

News24 Nigeria reports that Sani, as a member of the Senate from 2015 to 2019, opposed the decision of then Governor Nasir El-Rufai to take several loans, leading to a major political crisis between the duo.

But reacting to the lamentation of Governor Uba Sani on Saturday over his difficulty in paying Kaduna workers salaries as a result of the loans incurred by El-Rufai, the former Senator said the ugly development has vindicated him.

“To the glory of our Lord Almighty,posterity has vindicated me on the Kaduna Loan and Debt profile,” Sani said in a post on his verified X handle on Saturday night.

News24 Nigeria reports that Governor Sani said on Saturday that his administration was finding it difficult to pay workers’ salaries because of the repayment of the state’ huge debts.

The governor said the administration inherited $587 million, N85 billion, and 115 contractual liabilities from the administration of El-Rufai.

Sani lamented that, due to the rise in the exchange rate, the state is now paying back almost triple what was borrowed by the previous administration.

But the governor’s comment sparked criticism from El-Rufai’s son, Bello, who said Gov. Sani was only trying to cover his administration’s incompetence.

“These guys have realised that they are wholly incompetent and the only way to mask the nonsense is to deflect. From a Governor who is always sleeping in Abuja to a litany of incompetent aides who were only rewarded for foolish political reasons,” he said.
