Kaduna: El-Rufai, Sen Shehu Sani at war on Twitter over Peter Obi


Kaduna State Governor, Nasir el - Rufai and Senator representing Kaduna Central at the Senate, Shehu Sani, are locked in Twitter war.

Sani engaged el-Rufai in a social media quarrel as he tweeted a response to an earlier angry tweet by el-Rufai at ex -Governor of Anambra State, Peter Obi, who is the vice - presidential candidate of the opposition Peoples Democratic Party in the 2019 presidential election.

Trouble started when el- Rufai tweeted at Ob, saying, 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 N4 m damages.


El - Rufai ’s tweet was accompanied by an earlier tweet by the Coalition of Buhari - Osibanjo (sic) Movement, which had also tweeted in response to a publication in a national daily (not The PUNCH) entitled, ‘Peter Obi, Ghost Of The Past And Reality Of Today.’

The Coalition, with twitter handle @Cobom2019, had responded to the said write- up on Peter Obi by tweeting: “In a swift moment of needless impulse, Peter Obi bundled some northerners, mostly those who engaged in menial jobs for survival & marched them in trailer load back to their base. To him, these guys had no business being in Anambra State.”

A few hours later, Shehu Sani tweeted an obvious response to el- Rufai:


The two tweets are currently receiving retweets and responses on Twitter.
