Outrage knocked on the kaduna state Governor, Nasir El-Rufai on social media over his reaction to a planned rally in support of Peter Obi, the presidential candidate of the Labour Party, in kaduna state capital.
Abdullahi Umar Zarma, a tweep had recently tweeted a call for a two-million man march in Kaduna for Peter Obi, the presidential aspirant in the forthcoming general election.
El-Rufai who quoted the tweet dismissed it in the early hour of today (Monday). The kaduna governor noted that the possibility of 200 persons coming for the rally and referred to south-easterners as ‘imports’, FreshReporters early reported.
El Rufai said, “In Kaduna? Not Kaduna Twitter? – I hope you get Two Hundred persons on the streets… including those ‘imports’ that can’t open their shops on Mondays and came on overnight bus last night!! I jus’ dey laff, wallahi tallahi!!”
However, tweeps reacting to tthe governor’s tweet, begot series of knocking on him for being insensitive.
One of the Popular activist, Aisha Yesufu states, “As Governor who has been muscled by terrorists you surely know better right? Since even you as Governor has been restricted and left with writing letter to ICCIF!”
Ose Anenah also tweeted “The beautiful thing about the democratisation of social media is that you are not powerless. This hateful tweet disgracefully employs a racial stereotype that might expose peaceful marchers to real world harm. But you CAN act,”.
Oyin D also said, “El Rufai just called the Obidient Movement IPOB by talking about shops that don’t open on Monday. My Kaduna people, you guys have been affected by terrorism in the last couple of years, this is the time to show this man that power truly belongs to the people. Come and walk with us.”
Another tweep Adewale Adetona “From a sitting governor? This is so unnecessary and definitely not a way to foster a United Nigeria. Our so-called leaders keep fuelling unnecessary hate and bigotry.”
Alhaji Yusuf knocking the governor also added, “What about us that can’t travel from Kaduna to Abuja throughout the week because of bandits? Decorum and civility is what you El Rufai should understand. Your tweet lack appropriate social behaviour, hence you should keep quiet.”
