Kaduna State House of Assembly Speaker,Rt. Honourable Yusuf Zailani has debunked media report linking him and Kaduna State Governor ,Malam Nasir El-eufai to a negotiation with Sokoto Governor to decamp to the opposition party, People’s Democratic Party(PDP) .
The online medium reported that ” Gov. Tambuwal Heading Negotiations With Gov. Elrufai, Kaduna Speaker Zailani on Return to PDP”.
But the Speaker in his reaction describe , the report as, ” nothing but false ,unfounded and a figment of imagination by a sponsored blackmailer.”
He explained : ” Sokoto State Governor , Alhaji Aminu Waziru Tambuwal visited Kaduna to condole the Governor and myself over the recent attack .
“To interpret such important visit as a negotiation for likely move to decamp to PDP in the comings weeks ahead of the 2023 elections ,is purely an attempt to damage our hard earned reputation as ardent loyal party members with track records of commitment and dedication .
” To put up a concocted story that both governors Tambuwal and El-Rufai have been very close in talks and negotiations and secretly having private meetings in Kaduna for decamping and the 2023 agenda is laughable .
” I wouldn’t have reacted to the media report ,but for the purpose of setting the records straight ,more so, that some unsuspecting public members might believe the mundane reports, I decided to speak . ”
