My Father Never Campaigned For Me, Gov Sani Taught Me Politics – El-Rufai’s Son

House of Representatives member for Kaduna North, Bello El-Rufai has disclosed that the state governor, Uba Sani taught him politics.

El-Rufai described Sani as his mentor because he made him contest for the House of Representatives seat.

The lawmaker disclosed this during an interview hosted by Yaya Abba, titled, ‘With Shuraim.’

Bello said two of his friends influenced his move to work under Sani while he was a serving Senator in the 9th Senate.

Bello also noted that his membership in the Green Chamber was not his father’s call because El-Rufai “never campaigned for me”.

He said, “I think working with Senator Uba Sani taught me the politics that fits this country.

“He’s still my mentor, we talk every day. After he (Sani) emerged as the APC candidate to replace my father, he told my father he wanted me to run for the Reps.

“But Senator Uba Sani was adamant that I had learnt a few things while working in the 9th Senate as a senior legislative aide. That was the step towards me running.

“For me, where I’m from, I feel I’m genuinely responsible for every individual that’s in Kaduna North.”
