Members of the All Progressives Congress, APC, in Kaduna State under the auspices of ‘True APC’, AKIDA, yesterday, alleged threat to their lives by Governor Nasir Ahmad El-Rufai.
The group in a statement signed by its spokesman, Mukhtar Ahmed, alleged that the governor at a town hall meeting in Giwa, at the weekend, described himself as the man with the big shoes that will crush, trample on and destroy the ants (in reference to members of APC AKIDA).
They said the threat should not be swept under the carpet, even as it called on security agencies to promptly investigate the threat with the aim of averting an impending political disaster in the state.
It called for swift intervention of the national headquarter of it party to take disciplinary actions against the governor for leading the party into an avoidable crisis that could have negative and monumental consequences on the unity and progress of the APC, just as it called on all foreign missions and embassies in Nigeria to take note of the governor’s intent to wipe off opposition.
They titled the statement, “Threat to Life on Hon. Isa Ashiru, Sen. Shehu Sani, Dr Hakeem Baba Ahmed, Hajia Hafsat Baba and all supporters of APC Akida by Governor Ahmad Nasiru El-Rufai of Kaduna State.”
The group said, “We are here today to alert the general public, security agencies, members and the leadership of the All Progressives Congress on a serious issue that has to do with the safety and lives of many prominent individuals and some citizens of Kaduna State.
“On Saturday June 4, a town-hall meeting was held at Giwa Local Government Area, while responding to one Ayuba Ragas who advised the governor to reconcile with the APC Akida group, he (the governor) described himself as the man with the big shoes that will crush, trample on and destroy the ants (in reference to members of the APC Akida). “I am ready for the useless people who call themselves APC Akida, the scene is like that of a man wearing a big shoe being confronted by ants, the man wearing the big shoe, will crush, trample and destroy the ants.
“This unwarranted threat, coming from a man who has the resources and state security apparatus at his beck and call is very disturbing and such irresponsible comments should not be swept under the carpet because it has the power to push some overzealous thugs of the governor to maim and attack supporters of the True All Progressive Congress. Consequently, we are calling on security agencies to promptly investigate this threat with the aim of averting an impending political disaster.
“Let us make it abundantly clear that anything that happens to our leaders and supporters in any part of the state we are going to hold the governor responsible. APC AKDA is a responsible group that is loyal to power. We have vowed to speak up against any form of injustice or misrule by anybody or group and no amount of threat or intimidation can stop us. We owe our long suffering masses a duty to ensure good governance, equity and justice, any group or individuals that deviate from these will have us to contend with,” the statement read.
