Governor Nasir Ahmad El-Rufai of Kaduna State while stating that voting Atiku Abubakar, and his vice into power will bring about division in the country, called the past governor of Anambra State Mr Peter Obi a tribal bigot.
According to El Rufai in a tweet on Friday November 9, 2018 said ‘Peter Obi is a tribal bigot after recalling how Peter Obi supported his detention by the Department of State Services (DSS) for 48 hours in a hotel in 2014 on the ground that “El-Rufai has no business being in Anambra State as it is not Katsina State.”
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 an 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. https://t.co/1BIG9WJpAJ

El-Rufai’s post has generated mixed reactions among Nigerians.
El Rufai calling Peter Obi a Tribal Bigot is simply INSIPID.
He is on a smear campaign in a failed attempt to rubbish the stellar political career of Obi,he can't even compare to Peter's Grandiose achievements.
We all know El Rufai is a washed out & Irrelevant politrick-ian

Just look at who is calling Peter Obi a tribal bigot. El-Rufai accusing Christians, Niger Deltans, PDP & GEJ of being behind Boko Haram. https://t.co/G73wq26TmR

Did Elrufai actually write this or they hacked his account? Is this guy this stupid? Peter Obi a bigot? What kind of anger will make a Governor post this about another Leader?
Wasn't this the same boy who has been arresting and detaining people anyhow in Kaduna? https://t.co/cYkN9asM3P

Imagine the king of bigots, who once insulted Jesus Christ and paid killer herdsmen, famed for divisiveness, accused GEJ of going to Chad to plan Boko Haram attacks calling a detribalised Nigerian Peter Obi, a bigot. Devil must be cringing at this tweet! Imagine the whataboutism! https://t.co/cPS6Jx1h80

The dragging of Peter Obi by El-Rufai was so out of pocket. Like where did it come from? To what end? Signalling to his guys that he's available for mudslinging duties? Setting the tone for the direction of their campaign? Baptising Obi? What was that about? pic.twitter.com/NE2XsntxXK

Kaduna born Striker, El Rufai has been assigned a new role at Lifeless FC.
He is to mark Peter Obi and damage his prolific form with awful tackles.
When a club striker begins to play as defender, you know the game is lost and Relegation is imminent.

PETER OBI IS A TRIBAL BIGOT….EL RUFAI

El Rufai thinks this is 2015 when he incited northerners & Muslims against GEJ & his fanboys like Mark Essien and Omojuwa were cheerleading him. He doesn’t have any grounds to accuse Peter Obi of incompetence so he’s resorted to whataboutism of bigotry. El Rufai, we’ll drag you. https://t.co/cPS6Jx1h80

El Rufai was detained for two days by SSS in Anambra, and Peter Obi, Anambra Governor, shrugged and said: Why did he leave Katsina to come here? That was very wrong of him.

The North never forgets sir. The strong allegations on his neck 🧣, that he confiscated shops belonging to northerners & forced every Northerner to hang a "Non INDIGENE" tag on his or neck remains fresh in our minds. We will remind every northerner that cares to listen.

I can't imagine that the word 'bigot' whether tribal or religious will be defined without mentioning El https://t.co/6JVqcPiGVP can imagine he has the guts to call someone a bigot.

Being civil is identifying bigots and ethnic jingoist and avoiding them.
We won't vote those that humiliated us and our people while they were at the corridors of power, Peter Obi is well known for that and we'll deal with them through the ballot come 2019 God's willing.

Same Peter Obi visited Sokoto and Niger State, gave the schools 1 million each, https://t.co/P1IdgNZ2Tk. He wasn’t a tribal bigot then, Sir do you have any positive contribution to any other region in Nigeria?

That is the senseless tweet remorseless bigot El-Rufai tweeted in July 2012 from his high horse, whilst drunk on his ethnicity. He doesn’t care about aftermath and repercussion of his moronic and devious and publicity seeking actions. Buhari won’t rule forever. APC is finished. pic.twitter.com/f5tqZRY93f
