Femi Fani-Kayode, a former Aviation Minister, has criticized Governor Nasir El-Rufai of Kaduna State over his comment on the removal of Governor Mai Mala Buni of Yobe State, as the Caretaker Chairman of the All Progressives Congress, APC.
Fani-Kayode on Friday said he was not there when President Muhammadu Buhari ordered the removal of Mai Mala Buni as the Caretaker Chairman of the All Progressives Congress.
He further stated that he doubts President Buhari would take action without following the law.
Fani-Kayode condemned the Governor of Kaduna State, Nasir El-Rufai for announcing on Tv that Buhari had removed the Governor of Yobe State as the Caretaker Chairman of the party.
He further stated that the action of El-Rufai painted President Buhari as if he were a dictator.
Fani-Kayode while speaking on Channels Television on Friday, doubted if the President ever approved Buni’s removal.
He said, “I was not there when the President ordered the removal of Buni. Neither was he there. I doubt very much if the President would do that, to listen to one side and ignore the order. I doubt if he would do that without following the law.”
I have never seen a situation where the minister or governor or even party chairman would come on national TV and say the President has endorsed someone and everybody ought to sit down. The President of this country is a democratic, decent person who would never act that way.
“Even if the President told them that, it is not right for El-Rufai to come on national TV and disclose that or begin to paint the President as if he were kind of a dictator. We are in a country of laws that must be regarded. If the President wants to remove Buni, we would do it according to the law.”
