The disagreement between former Kaduna state governor Nasir El’rufai and his annointed successor Governor Uba Sani has recorded some toll in the rank of the leadership of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) in the state.

The APC in Kaduna State said it has suspended Hajiya Maryam Mai-Rusau, the State Women leader for allegedly defending former Gov. Nasir El-Rufai over a recent controversy on the state’s large debt.

The suspension was contained in a letter from the Badarawa/Malali Ward of the APC Executive Committee on Sunday which announced that the suspension was necessary as she violated the party’s constitution, specifically article 21.2 (v).

The letter which was co-signed by the Ward Chairman and Secretary, Ali Maishago and Zakka Bassahuwa, respectively and made available to newsmen in the state,bread in parts, “In view of the above, below are the gross misconducts where the subsequent suspension relied upon:

“Defamation of the character of His Excellency, the Executive Governor of Kaduna State, Malam Uba Sani.

“Unauthorized publicity of the party’s dispute that discredited the personality of the Executive Governor of Kaduna State.”

Recall that the Kaduna governor had earlier stated that he inherited a debt burden of $587 million, N85 billion, and 115 contractual liabilities from his predecessor.
