Aisha had taken to her Twitter page and quoted a 2014 tweet by el-Rufai commenting on the use of the presidential jet. She tweeted:
“Who is now breaking the implication of Buhari’s N8.5bn 2020 budget to maintain presidential fleet? Please tell me I am wrong about the figure!”

The BBOG co-founder’s post was in reference to the use of a presidential jet for personal engagement by Hanan, daughter of President Muhammadu Buhari.
KanyiDaily had reported that Hanan Buhari flew into Bauchi on presidential jet to take photographs of a traditional event in the state.
This silence of El-Rufai to the question raised by Aisha Yesufu led the twitter user identified as Innocent Idemili to call out the governor.
Reacting to being called out, the governor dragged both Aisha and Innocent, who he described as jobless clowns. He also pointed that his job is to govern Kaduna state rather than being queried by people who are not from Kaduna.
The Kaduna governor then said he will ignore and also forgive them.
“Once and final response: I do not respond to every dimwit who never voted in Kaduna State on my TL.
“I am trying to govern our state and disinterested in being a public commentator/responder to publicity/follower-seeking, anonymous and jobless clowns with neither credentials nor address.
“Afterword: The most efficient and effective way to hurt those seeking unearned attention, cheap retweets and Twitter following is to ignore them.
“Depression and sychosis set in for ignored inanities and non-entities, manifesting into anger, insults and fabrications. I will forgive you!,” el-Rufai tweeted.
