See gobe! “You Are A Liar, I Dare You To Go To U.S.” - El-Rufai to Atiku

According to reports on social media, Governor Nasir El-Rufai of Kaduna State has responded to former Vice President Atiku Abubakar’s allegation that he (Atiku) was betrayed by the governor and former chairman of the EFCC, Nuhu Ribadu.

PREMIUM TIMES published excerpts of an interview where the former vice president made the allegations.
In a statement he personally signed Tuesday, Mr. El Rufai accused the former VP of falsehood.
He said Mr. Abubakar “has a record of spewing outright lies and innuendo against my person”.

“As we struggle to build a law-abiding society and secure progressive outcomes for our people, we cannot allow the triumph on these shores of those who will have us move to a post-factual world,” he said.
The Kaduna governor said not even Mr. Abubakar’s expertise “in the dark arts of damaging other people through a campaign of lies from him and his media machine” is capable of returning the country to its past.
Mr. El-Rufai said contrary to the postulation by Mr. Abubakar, he never had anything to do with the incorporation of Transcorp.

“Those that established that company and fronted it like Festus Odimegwu, Tony Elumelu, Otunba Lawal Solarin and Ndi Okereke-Onyiuke are still around and alive.
