$350m World Bank Loan: Senator Hunkuyi replies El-Rufai


The Senator representing Kaduna North Senatorial District at the Senate, Suleiman Hunkuyi, has spoken on Governor Nasir El-Rufai’s verbal attack on him and his two other colleagues over their roles in the Senate’s rejection of the $350m World Bank loan to the state.

El-Rufai had said the three senators from the state Shehu Sani (Kaduna Central), Suleiman Hunkuyi (Kaduna North) and Danjuma Laah (Southern Kaduna) were “useless’, accusing them of hindering a $350m loan request by the Kaduna State Government.

El-Rufai had said,”They are useless representatives who are against the approval of the loan, such that the school, roads, hospitals and other good projects started in the state are not completed.

“Today, there are no enemies of Kaduna State like Suleiman Hunkuyi, Shehu Sani and Danjuma Laah, may God punish then and pay them back with their intentions.”

“May God punish them and pay them back with their intentions,” he repeated.

However, Hunkuyi, while addressing newsmen on the outcome of the Saturday’s ward/local congresses in the state, said there was no need to reply El-rufai.

According to him, even if the governor insulted him 100 times over, he would not reply him.

“I don’t respond to insults. I think Hunkuyi, for one, is relieved that our kith and kin have responded. He who God fights for does not have to fight,” he said.
