El-Rufai mocks Peter Obi’s OBIdient movement over proposed Kaduna million-man march

Nasir El-Rufai, the Kaduna State Governor, has mocked the youth movement of Peter Obi, the Presidential Candidate of the Labour Party.

El-Rufai made this statement on Monday, August 15, via his verified Twitter handle.

This was in response to a tweet, notifying Kaduna residents about a proposed million-man march in support of Obi.

However, El-Rufai tweeted in response, “In Kaduna? Not Kaduna Twitter? –
πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ I hope you get Two Hundred persons on the streets, including those β€˜imports’ that can’t open their shops on Mondays, and came on overnight bus last night!!

However, his tweet has drawn a backlash from supporters of Peter Obi; as well as other social media users who accused him of hate and ethnic bias.

Recently, traders, youths sympathisers and supporters of Peter Obi presidential candidacy Saturday shut down commercial activities in Nasarawa; with the Labour party organising one million man March to register their support for Peter Obi in Lafia.

Speaking, State Chairman of the Party, Alexander Emmanuel said the One-million-man march was to sensitise; conscentise the people of the state on the need to elect credible leaders in the 2023; as well as sending signal to other political parties who claimed Labour party does not have a structure.

Furthermore, he expressed confidence that the party will win the 2023 presidential election and all elective positions in Nasarawa state; adding that, the residents were tired of bad governance and were ready to vote for the party’s candidates in the coming elections.

“I accepted the request of the support groups, business class, the youth and members from other parties to embark on this sensitisation rally because I want the people to understand the need why they should elect credible leaders into office in 2023, and it is also to prove a point to other political parties who always say that our supporters are only on the social media.”

On his part, Secretary of the coalition of Peter Obi candidacy movement, Wilson Kingsley, said residents of the state were tired of the misrule of the All Progressives Congress led government at the federal and state levels which was why they came out in their numbers to support the former Anambra state governor.
