The Governor of Kaduna State, Nasir el-Rufai has taken to Twitter to mock supporters of Labour Party’s presidential candidate, Mr. Peter Obi, who are planning a two-million-man march in his state.
Obi’s supporters have attempted marches and other rallies across the thirty-six states of the country and the federal capital territory, prompting questions over possible violation of campaign timelines set by INEC.
Announcing the details for the Kaduna march, however, the governor of the state wasted no time emphasizing the futility of their plan and the impossibility of their targeted turn-out, with a reference to the inability of the group, largely easterners, to do the same in their home states where secessionist group IPOB maintain a ‘sit-at-home’ lockdown on Mondays.
Reacting to the post, el-Rufai wrote “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 just dey laff, wallahi tallahi!!”
