Let Tinubu Breathe, Stop Playing God – Alawuje Replies El Rufai

Former governor Nasir El Rufai should not elevate himself to God’s position and rather support President Tinubu to succeed or at least, let him breathe.

This is the position of the National Coordinator of the Disciples of Jagaban, Comrade AbdulHakeem Adegoke Alawuje who advised the former Kaduna State government to stop his shenanigans on the needless attack of the performing government.

In a press statement released to journalists on Monday, Alawuje maintained that El Rufai’s constant attacks on Tinubu’s government are driven by sheer selfish interest and not for the purpose of good governance or in the overall interest of Nigeria.

The press statement reads in part:
“If El Rufai had been confirmed as a minister of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, all these attacks wouldn’t have come into play. Definitely, he cannot survive without being in government.

“Recent vituperation credited to El Rufai reveals his hidden agenda and personal interest, indicating he is not really interested in national development but selfish and parochial interest.

Speaking with journalists after delivering the lead paper at a capacity-building workshop, in Maiduguri, Borno State on Monday 15th April 2024, El-Rufai alleged that Tinubu’,s government has resumed paying petrol subsidy:
In his words: “The federal government is now subsidizing fuel; many people don’t know this. It is the right policy. I have always supported the withdrawal of oil subsidy; but in the course of implementing the policy, the government realised that subsidy has to be back; right now, the government is spending a lot of money for subsidies, even more than before.

However, replying El Rufai, as well as varying individuals and groups on the alleged return of PMS subsidy, the Federal Government through the Ministry of Petroleum Resources and the Nigerian National Petroleum Company Limited said the claims were wrong.

The Minister of State for Petroleum Resources (Oil), Heineken Lokpobiri, during a live television interview in Abuja, challenged those who made this argument to provide evidence to justify their allegations, stressing that since President Bola Tinubu had declared the end of subsidy on petrol, the situation remains so.
He added that petrol subsidy had ceased to exist, and urged those who alleged the government was still subsidising the commodity to provide evidence and facts.
It will be recalled that the same El Rufai was reported to be fraternising with members of opposition parties a few weeks ago.

All these are coming from just a few months after he left office as a two-term governor of Kaduna State and after Tinubu could not make him minister because of security reports preferred against him by the National Assembly.

But must El Rufai always be in government to remain a loyal citizen?
And how on earth will El-Rufai who joined Tinubu campaign in the wee hours of the campaign expect to be part of the government by all means?
Is it not time the country is mindful of this kind of people who are only after their personal interest. Unfortunately, not many people are aware of this cynical and sinister motive; hence those in Tinubu’s media team should be wary of El Rufai and be ready to place him where he truly belongs.

Surprisingly, El Rufai is not ashamed of fighting tooth and nail for political office under Tinubu or is it, not the same El Rufai who ganged up with the like John Odigie Oyegun, Rotimi Chibuike Ameachi, Kayode Fayemi and some others, to bring down Tinubu’s political structure during former president Muhammad Buhar’s tenure?
We have not forgotten El-Rufai’s ignoble role in Edo, when he led a campaign against the APC candidate in the 2018 gubernatorial election in support of the PDP candidate, Governor Godwin Obaseki.
Not many people are aware that the loss the APC recorded in Kaduna State in the presidential election and the narrow win of the APC governor were direct consequences of El Rufai’s misrule, when he, as governor, used media and government apparatus to ‘destroy’ whoever was perceived to have any relationship with, or loyal to Tinubu within his state. How can he now believe he could deceive us today. And how can he be struggling to work under the same Tinubu he rallied to destroy politically before reality forced him to align just before the primary election.

Other gang leaders like Oyegun and Ameachi, Fayemi, Rauf Aregbesola, Yemi Osinbajo et al know within themselves that they went too far in the intra-party squabbles against the president in the past, consequently, have accepted their faith, lick their wounds and the consequences of their shenanigans. But it’s only El Rufai who believes his political manipulations and wolf-crying could change white to black, intimidate the government and twist the hands of the president.

Unfortunately for him, those who know El Rufai more than he knows himself are within the political landscape of Nigeria, hence, he should beware that he can no longer fool all the people all the time.
El Rufai has forgotten that power is transient. Unfortunately, he can no longer demolish the houses of his perceived enemies. That has now become a thing of the past.

Again, El Rufai should realise his futile attempts to discredit the laudable economic achievements of the government, as the Naira daily gains strength against the Dollar has exposed him to all and sundry, as an enemy of the nation who is only wailing because of his exclusion from the government.
Truth indeed are words of God when he says in the Qur’an and other scriptures: “You will earn no reward except for what you have worked for”.

El Rufai should tell the world the number of real APC members in Kaduna State (who made him governor) he benefitted in his eight-year rule. Those who truly benefitted from his government are bootlickers, particularly those who worked with him as a minister of the FCT, Abuja, who are mainly PDP members.

El Rufai should not forget that the Law of Karma is real. He could not expect to manipulate a lot of people, including the former president Muhammadu Buhari against Tinubu, and expect to go unrewarded.

Indeed, El Rufai’s political sojourn has come to an end, his game is up. His shenanigans have been exposed and the Law of Karma is bound to take its toll. Tinubu will surely survive El Rufai’s manipulations but he will live to reap the fruits of his constant cajoling and wickedness in the polity.
