El-Rufai Continues Cold War With Emir Of Zazzau

…Orders Security not to allow Emir entry to a State function

Governor Nasir el-Rufai of Kaduna State on Tuesday renewed his cold war against the Emir of Zauzau, Alhaji Shehu Idris as he took advantage of breach of protocol and ordered security operatives to prevent the Emir from gaining access to the venue of a state event.

The event was the commissioning of Olam factory located along Kaduna Abuja road that was attended by President Muhammadu Buhari.
Governor el-Rufai was overheard raining insults on the Emir, who in the last two years has suffered some measure of disdain and humiliation since May 2015 when el-Rufai assumed office as governor.

It was gathered that a mixed up in time may have caused the Emir arriving at the time he was told but surprisingly, he was stopped while musicians and entertainers that arrived after the Emir were allowed entry into the venue.

The Emir of Zazzau and el-Rufai have enjoyed no love lost in the past two years following disagreements over demolitions of houses in Zaria, sacking of district heads, reduction in salaries of the Emir’s counsels which did not go down well with the Emir.

el-Rufai’s disdain for the Emir is not hidden as it is known just as it has been reported he derives pleasure in keeping the traditional ruler waiting for hours whenever he visits the Government House.

It was gathered that the governor’s disdain for the Emir began during the build up to the 2015 general elections when el-Rufai as a candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), accused the traditional ruler of supporting the former governor of the state, Alhaji Ramallam Yero, who was also the governorship candidate of the PDP.

The cold war later became open during the inauguration ceremony of el-Rufai at the Murtala Square, Kaduna that witnessed the Emir of Zauzzau pelted by supporters of Governor Nasir Elrufai.

The development angered the people of the Zaria emirate council as well as the supporters of the Emir.
Surprisingly, Governor el-Rufai has neither apologise, condemn or make reference to the unwarranted act against the emir till date refused to condemn the action of his supporters thereby set tongues wagging that it must have been a deliberate and calculated action targeted .

This is just as findings indicate that the administration may have concluded plans to dethrone the Emir but for the possible backlash it may have against 2019 elections.

Already, a younger person from the emirate council, who is currently serving as an Ambassador, is believed to have been penciled down for the traditional stool whenever the present emir is dethroned.
