The Governor of Kaduna State, Nasir El-Rufai, has been accused of trying to set the state on fire. This is following the Governor’s choice of a Muslim as his running mate for the 2019 election.
Governor El-Rufai, a Muslim, had on Friday announced that he will be running for second term with Hadiza Balarabe, another Muslim. Reacting to this, Reno Omokri, a former aide to ex-President Goodluck Jonathan, noted that such decision could set the state on fire. In his tweets on Friday evening, Omokri said, “Is @Elrufai trying to set Kaduna on fire? How can he, a Muslim, name Hadiza Balarabe, another Muslim as his running mate?
“In an ultra sensitive religious state like Kaduna, it is vital to balance the ticket to give Christians a sense of belonging so that peace reigns.”
