2019: El-Rufai Attacks Peter Obi

Governor Nasir El-Rufai of Kaduna State has described Peter Obi, the running mate of the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party(PDP) Atiku Abubakar, as a tribal bigot.

The Governor stated that voting Atiku and Obi into power will bring about division in the country.

He tweeted, “Peter Obi is a tribal bigot. He was widely quoted on national television that the SSS was right to detain me for 48 hours in a hotel in 2014 on the grounds that ‘El-Rufai has no business being in Anambra State as it is not Katsina State!’

“I sued the SSS and awarded N4m damages.”

In his response, Peter Obi dismissed El-Rufai’s statement as diversionary and false,and aimed at moving Nigerians’ attention from the issue of the economy which the Atiku/Obi campaign is focused on.
