Restructuring: Senate did not ‘rubbish’ el-Rufai – Uba Sani

His tweet appeared reactionary to Basiruโ€™s earlier claims that the governor attacked the Senate over restructuring which the later chaired a while ago.

Senator representing Kaduna Central, Uba Sani, yesterday reacted to a statement credited to his colleague from Osun Central , Ajibola Basiru over Kaduna State Governor, Nasir El-Rufaiโ€™s comment on restructuring at a function in Kaduna a few days ago.

Sani on his Tweeter page, said: โ€œThe Senate at no time condemned Governor El-Rufaiโ€™s comments on restructuring at the 50th anniversary of Arewa House in Kaduna.โ€

โ€œThe comments attributed to Bashiru are not reflective of the position of the Senate. The Senate at no time mandated anyone to join issues with Governor El-Rufai on his comments relating to the report of the APC Committee on restructuring, which he chaired.

โ€œI am a member of the Senate Committee on Media and Publicity and can state emphatically that no such mandate was given to the committee or any of its members. I have taken a good look at Governor El-Rufaiโ€™s presentation and the only reference therein to the National Assembly is an appeal to federal legislators to urgently enact constitutional amendments.
