Kaduna State governor, Nasir El-Rufai has said he was not sure Senator Shehu Sani would be good enough to be employed by the state civil service commission.

The governor stated this in a tweet on his Twitter handle on Friday.

Sani, who represented Kaduna Central at the 8th Senate, had on Thursday, also in a tweet expressed doubt on claims that Kaduna State has commenced payment of N30,000 minimum wage to civil servants.

The former senator had said, “Any payment of minimum wage by any state not in accordance with the template of the new minimum wage act is simply a fraud. Selective, manipulative and dubious payment is simply a deceit. Confirm full compliance from the NLC & the TUC first not from politicians.”

A Twitter user, Saifu Kajuru had in response to Sani’s comment asked El-Rufai, “Pls start paying @Shehu Sani minimum wage so that he can use it and buy some sense!”

In his response, the governor wrote, “Uncertain whether he (Sani) is good enough to be employed by the Kaduna State Civil Service Commission!”

The governor had added a ‘laugh out loud’ emojis apparently to mock the former senator.

Before 2019 general elections, El-Rufai, said that Sani allegedly prevented the 8th Senate from granting aloan request to his government had sworn to ensure the former senator never returned to the senate.

He eventually lost the general election to Uba Sani.
