Ecological funds: You are not a man that can take responsibility for anything- El-Rufai hits back at GEJ

Kaduna state governor, Nasir El-Rufai, has responded to a statement by former President Goodluck Jonathan who called him a liar for claiming that while in office, he partially distributed the ecological funds to states that he had interest in. El-Rufai had at the end of the national economic council (NEC) meeting in Abuja last Thursday, spoke to state house correspondents and alleged that Jonathan was partial in the disbursement of the ecological fund while he was in office.

“What President Goodluck Jonathan did was to take N2 billion each from the  ecological fund and gave to some PDP states. Any PDP state that was not his friend, like Kano and Kwara, didn’t get,”.
GEJ through his media aide, Ikechukwu Eze, released a statement responding to this claim. In the statement, said there is no truth in El-Rufai's claims. He described the governor as a liar.
El-Rufai has now released a statement responding to Jonathan's bashing. Part of his statement reads

"Former President Goodluck Jonathan is not a man that can take responsibility for anything. In March 2015, not long after making a concession call to President Buhari, he summoned his party and asked its leadership to reject the results of an election whose winner he had congratulated in private. That effort at duplicity failed spectacularly and the will of the people prevailed. 
So, no one should be surprised that he is denying presiding over the skewed distribution of ecological funds. His denial begs the question. What special circumstances ensured that only states that were controlled by the PDP and its allied parties qualified for N2bn each? Is it not curious that not only were his allies the only ones who got the funds, but that the various ecological problems in all 17 states required the same N2bn across the states? 
Almighty God made it possible for the Sun to shine on all. But Dr. Jonathan exercised his powers as president as if he governed for only his party or his family. The Jonathan government was so conscious that there was something untoward with sharing public funds in that manner that they did not publicize the payments to their preferred states. 
Dr. Jonathan cannot argue with the facts. The payments are in the records of the Ecological Fund. He knowingly engaged in discriminatory disbursement of federal funds. The legality of that is open to question, despite the existence of presidential discretion. 
Thankfully, Dr. Jonathan did not deny that the N2bn payments were skewed to certain states. His mindset in trying to create an equivalence between those payments and federal support for the green wall projects in some of the northern states can be easily seen as a disingenuous argument. 


Dr. Jonathan claimed El-Rufai is a liar, quoting sources that did not once mention any lie that can be attributed to him. One of El-Rufai’s identified weakness in the Nigerian political space is his bluntness and fidelity to principles. Even his enemies admit that grudgingly about him. Malam Nasir El-Rufai will not allow Dr. Jonathan to make him the issue when the criteria the former president used in allocating N2bn each to allied state governments remain so murky. There is no need to cry wolf before the Final Report of the Committee is presented".

This midget has the brain of a cockroach that can live 4 2days without a head. The response is hollow and completely devoid of any sound or logical reasoning. GEJ's response to his initial query was on point. You just don't cast baseless aspersion on former leaders without a sound basis. In any event, isn't this the same midget that issued CofO over choice properties in Abuja to his one year old child; family and friends and vomited rubbish when he was found and dared Nigerian to allocate lands to enemies when they assume position of authority? God will save us from idiots like this spewing rubbish

El Rufai, GEJ is not the first person to call you a liar, you are really a pathological liar, In the book of your mentor Obasanjo, you were referred to as a liar. On many occasions you are claimed to be one and everybody knows you as one. So leave GEJ alone, humility is not Stupidity. GEJ is bigger than you, hes not your mate, there is nothing you can do now to change that. Face the war ravaging your state. You are a double faced man

Nasir you are liar and everybody knows that, even two of your former bosses has attested to this, they are Obasanjo and Atiku, you will soon lie against Buhari and that will make it 3. We don't believe you and never will. You can never equal Jonathan in anyway. Now you've seen the mess you and your co travellers made of Nigeria.

El Rufai,you have been sponsoring crisis in southern Kaduna.Are you not Devil yourself?What an irony!

El Rufai, welldone for saying the truth. Its no secret that the ibos hate hearing the truth, thats why they are so insultive. Truning blind eye to the truth would keep this country backward. The sooner we are ready to embrace the truth, the better for us. Lets learn condem our pple when they are wrong, no matter the tribe. Jonathan embraced corruption. That is a fact that cannot be ruled out
