The governor said El-Rufai left him $587 million N85 billion and 115 contractual liabilities, which has made the state too broke to pay workers’ salaries.

However, in a series of posts via his X handle on Saturday, Bashir accused Governor Sani of contract inflation and forex speculation and used the debt burden as an excuse for his poor performance.

The young El-Rufai accused Sani of shying away from his responsibility by always staying away from the state and hibernating in Abuja and surrounding himself with a retinue of incompetent aides appointed for political patronage.

The governor’s spokesman, Mohammed Shehu, disclosed that his principal would not dignify El-Rufai’s son by responding to his attack.
