El-Rufai Mocks Igbos, Says 2 million March For Peter Obi in Kaduna Impossible

Former FCT minister and sitting governor of Kaduna State, Mallam Nasir Ahmad El-Rufai has gone on social media to openly abuse Igbo people and mock a planned 2 million march by supporters of Peter Obi in Kaduna State.

A twitter user whose name is Abdullahi Umar Zarma tweeted “Kaduna Two million march for Peter Obi” various times, ending the tweet with a hashtag #KadunaTwoMillionMarchforPeterObi.

Governor El-Rufai unprovoked, came to quote reply the tweet from Abdullahi. He responded to the tweet saying “In Kaduna? Not Kaduna twitter? /* Laughing emojis */, I hope you get two hundred persons on the streets, including those ‘imports’ that can’t open their shops on Mondays, and come on overnight bus last night!!! I jus’ dey laff, wallahi tallahi!!!.

Social Media users have lashed out at the governor for his lack of decorum and open tribalism towards Igbo people whom he referred to as ‘imports’, ‘overnight bus travellers’.

Popular Activist, Aisha Yesufu said that even shame is ashamed of Governor El-Rufai.

Many people have also reminded the governor to be more concerned about Kaduna state that is current plagued by terrorists and bandits. Kaduna residents are now afraid to ply the Kaduna-Abuja road for fear of being kidnapped.

Others used the opportunity to task politicians to stop putting out statements that is aimed at dividing Nigeria, and work on fostering unity among Nigerians.
