“He is still my mentor” – El-Rufai’s son hails Kaduna governor, Uba Sani

The son of former Kaduna governor, Nasir El-Rufai, Bello, has stated that incumbent Governor Uba Sani is his mentor.

Bello, a member of the House of Representatives, revealed this in a video interview hosted by Yaya Abba, titled, ‘With Shuraim.’ 

His words: “I think working with Senator Uba Sani taught me the politics that fit this country.

He’s still my mentor, we talk every day. After he (Sani) emerged as the APC candidate to replace my father, he told my father he wanted me to run for the Reps.

Senator Uba Sani was adamant that I had learnt a few things while working in the 9th Senate as a senior legislative aide. That was the step towards me running.” 

Bello’s comments come amidst the reported feud between his father and the incumbent governor. 

Sani had revealed that El-Rufai left a debt of $587 million, N85 billion, and N115 billion in contract liabilities.

Responding Bello’s brother, Bashir, on his social media handle, accused Sani of shying away from his responsibility by always staying away from the state and hibernating in Abuja.

Bashir also accused the governor of surrounding himself with a retinue of incompetent aides appointed for political patronage.
