The governor of Kaduna State, Senator Uba Sani has described Bashir, son of his predecessor Nasir El-Rufai’s recent attack on him as a distraction.

NewsBand reported that governor Uba Sani while speaking at a town hall meeting on Saturday, said his administration inherited a debt burden of $587 million, N85 billion, and 115 contractual liabilities from the El-Rufai administration.

He said the staggering debt has left Kaduna State with a few amounts, not enough to pay the salaries of workers.

Sani said, “Despite the huge debt burden of $587 million, N85 billion, and 115 contractual liabilities sadly inherited from the previous administration, we remain resolute in steering Kaduna State towards progress and sustainable development.

“We have conducted a thorough assessment of our situation and are sharpening our focus accordingly. It gladdens my heart to inform you that despite the huge inherited debt on the state, till date, we have not borrowed a single kobo”.

But in a swift reaction on Saturday, Bashir accused governor Sani of abandoning his official duties to incompetent aides and relocating to Abuja.

Meanwhile, governor Uba Sani who spoke through his spokesman, Mohammed Shehu, said he would not dignify Bashir with a response to his attack.

“The task ahead of us is enormous and we won’t trade that for trivialities. His Excellency Senator Uba Sani has categorically stated the true financial status of the state”.
