Reno Omokri has accused Kaduna State Governor, Nasir El-Rufai of using the dethroned Emir of Kano, Muhammadu Sanusi to push his presidential ambition.
El-Rufai had visited the dethroned Emir and took him out of the town to Abuja where he subsequently bordered a flight to Lagos.
But according to the former presidential aid, Omokri, El-Rufai’s recent show of affection towards Sanusi during his banishment to Nasarawa State was a “strategy” for his 2023 presidential ambition.
He however insisted on a tweet that the North will reject Sanusi as its preferred Presidential candidate in 2023.
“Those claiming Sanusi was deposed to pave way for him to run are naive. Even the North will reject him.
“The real strategy is that @elrufai rushed to his defence in order to cash in on Southern sympathy for Sanusi and use it to power his own Presidential ambition.”
