Kaduna state Governor, Nasir El-Rufai, has said that Senators defected from the All Progressives Congress (APC), because of the fear of President Muhammadu Buhari arresting and prosecuting them if he wins in the 2019 elections.
El-Rufai said President Buhari dislikes corruption and will not work with any corrupt politician to cheat Nigeria.
The Governor disclosed this, while answering questions during a Hausa media chat aired on radio stations in the state on Thursday.
“Why did these people (senators) leave APC? It’s because they love bribe and were afraid of what President Muhammadu Buhari will do to them if he gets re-elected. This is just the truth. What joined them together is that they love bribery and‎ corruption and they are afraid President Buhari will deal with them.
“Nobody will criticise this government for lack of performance because they are trying their best. If the senators were honestly supporting the president, he would have achieved more than what he currently achieved; but instead they are sabotaging his effort,” he said.
According to him, the Senate leadership under Senate President Bukola Saraki, is the worst in Nigeria’s history.
“He gave them budget (2018), they sat over it for 7-8 months without passage. The House of Representative members are more honest and trustworthy.
“But those in the Senate have nothing in mind rather than looking for money.
“Senate leadership under Bukola Saraki is the worst and no good leadership in the Senate.”
