Muhammadu Abdullahi Sugar has accused Governor Nasir El-Rufai of Kaduna state of making the federal government cancel the Nigerian Ports Authority (NPA) contract with Intel, a company belonging to ex-Vice President Atiku Abubakar.

He was reacting to the news of the termination of Atiku’s Intels Nigeria Limited’s Boats Pilotage Monitoring and Supervision agreement entered with NPA.‎

Sugar said that President Muhammadu Buhari might not be aware of the cancellation.

He said: ”Intels is a legitimate company doing legitimate business based on agreement with the NPA.

”We know too well that this is the handiwork of El-Rufai; but we want him to remember that even his boss, in the person of Chief Olusegun Obasanjo, tried to pull Atiku down when they had issues but the former vice president came out stronger.

”All efforts to paint him (Atiku) black with false allegations of corruption failed, and this one too will go the same way by Allah’s will.”

Speaking further, Sugar stated that Governor El-Rufai should be reminded of how Atiku brought him from nowhere to limelight.

”Atiku started this company from a container in 1982 and today it has become one of the companies to reckon with in this country; employing thousands of Nigerians. Therefore, rather than trying to edge him out of business, he should be commended.

”He brought out his resources in 2015 to support Buhari and the APC in all elections.

”But when the government came on board, he was not given any ministerial slot or any appointment to nominate any of his supporters, yet he kept quiet and now you are paying him with this?” Sugar said.
