Kaduna State governor, Nasir El-Rufai, on Friday took to Twitter to mock a former senator from the state, Shehu Sani.
The two political rivals have been at each other over political difference.
El-Rufai and Sani do frequently make distasteful remarks against each other.
Both were members of the same ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) before Mr Sani defected to Peoples Redemption Party (PRP) to contest the 2019 Senate election which he lost to the APC candidate, Uba Sani, a former aide to Mr El-Rufai.
“Uncertain whether he is good enough to be employed by the Kaduna State Civil Service Commission!” El-Rufai, said of Sani in a tweet he posted on the social media site at 9:35 a.m. via his Twitter handle @elrufai.
Mr El-Rufai laughed out using emojis, in the tweet.
The governor’s tweet was remotely prompted by a tweet from the former senator which appeared to have cast doubt on reports that Kaduna state has commenced payment of N30, 000 minimum wage to civil servants.
“Any payment of minimum wage by any state not in accordance with the template of the new minimum wage act is simply a fraud. Selective, manipulative and dubious payment is simply a deceit. Confirm full compliance from the NLC & the TUC first not from politicians,” Mr Sani (@ShehuSani) had said in his tweet, on Thursday.
A Twitter user by name Saifu kajuru (@SaifuBawa) while responding to Mr Sani’s remark tagged Mr El-Rufai and asked the governor to “start paying @ShehuSani minimum wage so that he can use it and buy some sense”. Hence, Mr El-Rufai’s response.
