Reno Omokri, a former presidential aide, has slammed Nasir El-Rufai, the immediate past governor of Kaduna State, for commenting on Muslims’ dominance of power in the state.
Omokri was reacting to statements allegedly credited to El-Rufai in which he told his audience before handing over to his successor that the Islamic dominance in Kaduna had been successfully replicated in Nigeria and that it shall continue.
El-Rufai went on to say that Bola Tinubu’s victory had silenced the Christian Association of Nigeria and that he will maintain an Islamic-dominated government for the next 20 years, not just in Kaduna State, but throughout Nigeria.
He added that during the electioneering campaigns, when Christians questioned why the Muslim/Muslim Ticket, he deceived ‘them’ by claiming that it was not for religious dominance when, in fact, the tickets were for Islamic dominance both nationally and at the state level.
On Monday, in response to the comments, Omokri described the video that captured El-Rufai’s statement as “scary,” emphasizing that his hatred for Christianity was on another level.
According to the former presidential aide, if President Bola Tinubu gives the former governor any sensitive position in his cabinet, he could spark a religious crisis.
Honestly, that El-Rufai video is scary. The hatred for Christianity pouring out of him was on another level. Are we going to pretend we do not have a problem here? If Tinubu gives this man any sensitive position, he can set up a conflagration between the two major religions. What did my eye just see? Ah!
