The Platform is a popular discussion series that is hosted by the Covenant Christian Center, which is usually held during public holidays such as Independence Day and May Day.

The annual programme hosted by Poju Oyemade of the Covenant Nation, will hold on 1st May 2021 with the theme ‘Is Devolution of Powers the Solution to Nigeria’s Problem?’

El-Rufai will participate in the interactive session alongside Ekiti State Governor, Kayode Fayemi, and his Rivers counterpart, Nyesom Wike, to discuss how “we can move the nation out of this present situation.”

However, the former FCT minister’s participation in the forthcoming event has been faulted due to his alleged abuse of human rights and insecurity ravaging Kaduna.

Since the assumption of office, Governor El-Rufai has been enmeshed in controversies, including proposing a bill restricting religious preaching in Kaduna.

The protesters allege that El-Rufai is a bigot and ethnic jingoist and they are calling on people to boycott the event with the hashtag #BoycottThePlatform.
