The 2019 race took a new turn today with Kaduna state governor, Nasir El-Rufai and Senator Shehu Sani throwing jabs at each other on twitter over PDP Vice Presidential candidate, Peter Obi.
So here is the gist. Leadership newspaper published an article today about PDP Vice Presidential candidate and former Anambra state governor, Peter Obi titled ”Peter Obi, the Ghost of the past and the Reality of Today”. The article examined Obi’s time in Anambra state government house and his spat with some Northerners that resided in the state when he was in office.
Kaduna state governor, Nasir El-Rufai saw the article and went on his twitter handle to accuse Obi of being a tribal bigot. According to El-Rufai, Obi while he was governor, got him arrested and detained when he came to the 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”.
Now Senator Sani who is an open enemy of the governor, went on twitter to throw shade at Governor El-Rufai. See his tweet below…
Governor El-Rufai is yet to respond to Sani’s shade.
