In a recent social media post, Bashir El-Rufai, the son of former Kaduna state governor Nasir El-Rufai, took a jab at the Bola Tinubu-led government, suggesting that its officials are feeling uneasy in anticipation of the 2027 general elections.

El-Rufai’s meetings with influential politicians from the Northern region have fueled speculations about a possible plot against the Tinubu-led government.

This has also been echoed by Shehu Sani, a former senator and member of the Peoples Democratic Party, who accused Northern politicians of joining forces against Tinubu’s administration in the upcoming elections.

Responding to a media post, Bashir expressed amusement and remarked, “Lmao. They are getting jittery & sending the wrongest person from the North to advocate for their propaganda, with absolutely no electoral value to his name but his old glory days of supposedly fighting for democracy & being locked in prison like he was Mandela.”

It is worth noting that Sani, who was once a prominent human rights activist, recently attended an event organized by the Tinubu government to commemorate Democracy Day. During the event, he praised President Tinubu as the “father of protests” during the military era.

Sani’s support for the Tinubu-led government after the 2023 general elections places him among a group of former PDP chieftains who have expressed favorable opinions of the current administration.

This includes former spokespersons for PDP presidential candidate Atiku Abubakar, Reno Omokri and Daniel Bwala, as well as ex-senator Ben Murray-Bruce.

The remarks made by El-Rufai and Sani shed light on the ongoing political dynamics and alliances within the Nigerian political landscape.

As the countdown to the 2027 general elections begins, the actions and statements of key figures will continue to shape the narrative of the political landscape in the years to come.
