'El-Rufai’s book is a collection of fiction' - Atiku Abubakar

Former FCT minister Mallam El-Rufai wrote a memoir titled The Accidental Public Servant which was unveiled in Abuja today, and in the book he criticized a few politicians...one of them former Vice President, Atiku Abubakar. In the book, El-Rufai described Atiku as a corrupt power hungry politician and alleged that he (El-Rufai) had almost resigned as the former Director General of the Bureau of Public Enterprises (BPE) because of persistent pressure and interference by Atiku, who was then the Chairman of the National Council on Privatization

Atiku has reacted to the content of the book, calling it a collection of fiction and exaggeration.
It amazes me that El Rufai can pass off fiction for self-gratification at the expense of truth as a book. El-Rufai's attack on my person is to say the least not surprising considering that this is the same man who has notoriety for disparaging religions and their icons, including lately Jesus Christ.

If he could go to such irreverent extent to disparage religious icons, who is an ordinary mortal like me? It is my belief that any man that can cross the boundary of reason and decency deserves prayers rather than anger.”

I wish to state that the book is as a collection of fiction, half truths, exaggeration and reflection of selective memory.

    El Rufai is too cunning, arrogant and nonchalant for a leader abeg, now that he is out of government its now that he knows how the right thing should be done and is telling everyone that cares to know, even on twitter. Are we fools not to remember how he turned Abuja lands to his personal property? I call his case that of a pot calling the kettle black.

Ndi ara! Odes! Mallam El-Rufia u be real ochi nnama. Why didn't you resign then or at least bring the situation to our notice till now. Okpo ngaji!

    Elrufai is one of the biggest pretenders we have in politics. The midget is just as cunning and arrogant as anything. He is power sick and desperate for attention. Is not his fault tho, I blame GEJ's inefficiency and loophole in performance which has made Elrufai's baseless criticsm to look potent. He gave choice lands to his family members, girl friends and cronies as FCT minister and he is now talking about corruption. Who is he fooling? Atiku introduced Elrufai to OBJ and he was appointed into BPE, today Atiku is a piece of shit in his eyes. Yes, Atiku is a desperate politician but Elrufai must not feed us with lies so as to make his book a best seller. He has no moral right to even talk, he deserves back seat abeg. Only a fool takes Elrufai serious!

    And this latest issue about Mallam Nasir El-Rufai's book's attack on Atiku, Who were suposed to be political bed fellows.

    Personally, I would rather believe El Rufai cos even though he might have exaggerated things, its ABSOLUTELY TRUE that Atiku is a greedy, power hungry politician. I also think its childish of him to try and bring up the whole 'Jesus Christ' issue again; If what he said is really 'untrue' you just keep quiet and don't dignify the accusations with a response. Agbaya buruku!

    Call him mallam, or any title of your fancy, el rufai (el-ruffian) is a rogue: quote me. I shall reveal this small man the way he is- physically(very tiny, but a big thief) mentally, he has a retinue of idiots who serve his big ego. This big thief wants to be president of Nigeria, and he has paid editors from the punch in lagos to leadership in abuja to say destroy buhari's well earned image as one who has zero tolerance for roguery.he tried his best to hijack the merger move, but he was shoved aside by the gen, who suddenly woke up to realize that the big thief -el rufai since the ptf days actually wants to rubbish him.hence, the former bauchi state dep gov now heads the cpc merger committee...will keep you all posted, every second of the way !!!

    El-ruffian is suffering from cognitive dissonance, that rogue converted the land in Abuja for himself and his wives.

    Atiku...a homosexual with a reprobate mind...
    Why are the atiku group jittery?
    Instead of the atiku group to even keep their mouths shut, they're busy spewing rubbish out of guilt. Who doesn't know that atiku is a morally bankrupt
    person who has sold his conscience to the devil?
    This is somebody who does not hesitate to sacrifice human beings for rituals to satisfy his greedy penchant to become president at all cost?
    Who doesn't know in the whole of adamawa that marabouts are the ones dictating to atiku and he receives instructions from them?!
    Who doesnt know that atiku has sodomised and spoilt the future of a lot of young men from ages 15 upwards in adamawa?
