Former Kano State gubernatorial aspirant, Jaafar Sani Bello, has flayed PDP chieftain, Ambassador Aminu Wali, accusing him of immorality and hypocrisy.
Bello, in an interview with Sahelian Times, castigated the former ambassador for returning to partisan politics after he had publicly announced his retirement in 2015.
“He pronounced his retirement in 2015, a successor was elected and homage was paid to that successor in person of Senator Bello Hayatu Gwarzo, only for Aminu Wali to return to the field of politics in 2018 and edged out a duly elected chairman, Alhaji Rabiu Dan Sharrif, on the grounds that Sharrif’s son was a Senior Special Assistant to the Governor of Kano State, who is APC governor,” he said.
“There is no morality, there is no ethics in his return, and it is the highest hypocrisy I have ever seen,” Bello said while questioning Wali’s morality.
Speaking further, Bello alleged that Aminu Wali returned to politics in 2018 with the sole ambition of fielding his son, who is now a serving commissioner under the leadership of Dr. Abdullahi Umar Ganduje (an APC Governor), as the flag bearer of the Peoples Democratic Party.
“This is the highest form hypocrisy, and perhaps the highest form of double standard I have ever seen,” he lamented.
According to him, the same Wali condemned Dan Sharu and opined that he did not stand the competence test to remain the chairman of the PDP at that time.
“Alhaji Rabiu Dan sharu’s son was never a card-carrying member of the PDP but Wali’s son is a serving commissioner today and is a card carrying member of the PDP. So who is committing worse sin than the other? I believe that Aminu Wali is committing the worst sin,” he said.
“Morality and statesmanship requires that Aminu Wali should stop associating himself with anything that has to do with the PDP, because he championed that on the son of Alhaji Rabiu Dan Sharu.”
“For the simple fact, he has been against somebody who was never a card-carrying member of the PDP,” Bello asserted.
