You are a ‘tribal bigot’ – El-Rufai blast Peter Obi

Nasir el-Rufai, Governor of Kaduna State, has described the vice-presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) as a “tribal bigot”.

The Governor stated this on Friday via a post on Twitter.

Although he did not expressly state what provoked the statement, he also accused the former Governor of Anambra State of being behind his detention by the Department of State Service (DSS) in 2014.

He said he eventually sued the DSS and was awarded N4 million in damages.

El-Rufai expressed his grievance via a tweet that read: “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 a 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.”
