Shehu Sani, a socio-political commentator, has advised the Senate against confirming former Kaduna State governor, Nasir El-Rufai to be minister.

Sani warned that El-Rufai should not be cleared if Nigeria wants peace to reign.

Describing the former governor as playing god while he was governor, Sani said El-Rufai was now at the mercy of the Senate.

Tweeting, he identified the former governor as a religious extremist and a fanatic.

According to Sani: “The Unconfirmed Ministerial nominee; The Imp who was intoxicated with power, and who arrogantly played God is now at the mercy of those wielding power.

“A religious extremist with a fanatical political agenda should have no place in the seat of power if that nation desires peace.”

The Senate had refused to confirm El-Rufai alongside two others due to security issues.
