Kaduna State Governor, Nasir El-Rufai has accused supporters of Peter Obi, the presidential candidate of Labour Party of trying to pull down his Twitter account.
Governor Nasir El-Rufai has dismissed the possibility of a proposed rally for the presidential candidate of the Labour Party, Peter Obi, gaining any traction in Kaduna State.
Early Monday, El- Rufai quoted a tweet, calling for a two million man march in Kaduna for Obi, and said, “In Kaduna? Not Kaduna Twitter? –
“I hope you get Two Hundred persons on the streets, including those ‘imports’ that can’t open their shops on Mondays, and came on overnight bus last night!!
“I jus’ dey laff, wallahi tallahi!! – #KadunaResident.”
However, supporters of Obi faulted the governor for calling for violence against Obi and his supporters.
Consequently, some of them reported the tweet to Twitter demanding that it should be pulled down.
Twitter, in a reply, said the tweet did not violate its rules.
Responding, El-Rufai tweeted, “El-Rufai cries out as ‘Obidients’ report his account to Twitter
The desperation of so-called ‘Obidients’ knows no bounds….they insult everyone they disagree with, but cannot accept that some find them disagreeable & have opinions too! One of them in Germany found my tweet too hot to handle.
@Twitter responded below. I STILL DEY LAFF!”
