On August 8, 2012, Nasir El-Rufai, now the Governor of Kaduna state, asked then President Jonathan to resign over the spate of insecurity facing Nigeria. His words were as follows “If he cannot do the job for which he was elected to do, he should consider going home.”
At the time that he spoke, Nigeria was the fourth most terrorised nation in the world. Now, fast forward to today. Nasir El-Rufai is now Governor of Kaduna state, and his mentor, General Muhammadu Buhari is currently President of Nigeria. Yet, despite this dream team, Nigeria is more insecure today.
According to the Global Terrorism Index, whereas Nigeria was the fourth most terrorised nation under Jonathan, we are today the third most terrorised nation on Earth, with the epicentre of insecurity now the Northeast and Kaduna state.
The El-Rufai who once asked then President Jonathan to resign is today singing a new tune as Kaduna state’s internal security collapses all around him.
Kaduna state, under Nasir El-Rufai is now the worst place on Earth to be a Christian. Human life has become so cheap in Kaduna to the extent that some people now say ‘only 40 people died today’. In Kaduna, if you want to be busy, go into the grave digging business.
And the sad thing is that this imp of a man went on national television to boast that he paid Fulani pastoralists to stop killing. Where on Earth does that happen? That a government will pay people suspected of killing, and expect them to stop killing. If El-Rufai does not go, Kaduna’s insecurity will not end!
Ironically, this man who now pays and pampers killer herdsmen, tweeted as follows on Friday, April 26, 2013:
“Any society that responds to crimes by forgiving and bribing the criminals will inevitably create large contingents of criminal waanabes….”
Today, this uber hypocrite has admitted paying herdsmen who kill Kaduna people, while his mentor, General Buhari, is rehabilitating ‘repentant’ Boko Haram. And, they are positioning El-Rufai for 2023. So that we can be killed like Southern Kaduna people? God forbid!
Look at the energy that Nasir El-Rufai put towards fight
