Nasir Ahmad el-Rufai
Former Governor, Kaduna State

"el-Rufai Has Turned Himself Into A Confirmed Religious Bigot With A Hidden Agenda To Destroy The Country Using Religion.” Kwamkur.

.... Calls on northern leaders to show the citizens the number of people they have empowered instead of the number of lives and property they have destroyed as is happening in Kaduna.

The immediate past Governor of Kaduna state, Nasir Ahmad el-Rufai has been called upon to refrain from actions and comments capable of igniting chaos in the country.

Making this call on Sunday in Jos, the Plateau state capital is Samuel Kwamkur, a top chieftain of the All Progressives Congress, APC. 

Hon. Samuel Kwamkur, while addressing journalists, cautioned former Governor of Kaduna State, Nasir El-Rufai, not to set Nigeria on fire with his utterances.

Kwankur, a former National Director of the Christian Association of Nigeria, CAN reacted to statements allegedly credited to the former Kaduna governor wherein he allegedly told his audience before handing over to his successor that "the Islamic dominance in Kaduna had been successfully replicated in Nigeria and that it shall continue."

El-Rufai, he alleged, equally told his audience that in the course of the electioneering campaigns, when “they” (Christians) tried to ask questions on why the Muslim/Muslim ticket, he deceived ‘them’ that it was not for religious dominance when in reality, the tickets both nationally and at the state level were for Islamic dominance.

He alleged that in the video containing the speech which has gone viral on social media, El-Rufai further said that the victory of Bola Tinubu had silenced the Christian Association of Nigeria, adding that he will sustain an Islamic-dominated government for 20 years and unending not only in Kaduna State but in Nigeria at large.

But Kwankur, while reacting to El-Rufai’s outburst, expressed disappointment at the utterances of the former governor, noting that the classification of the citizens of his state as ‘them’ versus us’ meant that the former governor cannot be exonerated from “the wanton killings, demolition of houses and places of worship of Christians in Kaduna.”

Kwankur said he was surprised that El-Rufai who was contemplated as one of the qualified persons to be appointed as the Chief of Staff to Mr President or Secretary to the Government of the Federation had turned himself into a “confirmed religious bigot with a hidden agenda to destroy the country using religion.”

“For El-Rufai to think that the Asiwaju vote is a victory for Islam is very unfortunate and speaks volumes of his kind of bigotry. His outburst has destroyed the remaining respect he enjoyed from patriotic Nigerians. We call on Asiwaju to be mindful of friends, associates and politicians like El-Rufai who seek to work with him as they will do more harm to the system and the nation and nothing good can come out of such.

“May I also use this medium to call on our governors in Nigeria, particularly our Northern governors to truly work towards removing our battered citizens from poverty, insecurity and the likes and ensure the provision of good healthcare and other benefits of good governance, rather than to dwell on preaching hate and religious and tribal differences.

“I call on our leaders to show the citizens the number of people they have empowered instead of the number of lives and property they have destroyed as is happening in Kaduna. I believe that God shall continue to expose the wolves in sheep’s clothing amongst Nigerians,” he added. (The PUNCH)
