‘I hope you get 200 persons’ El-Rufai mocks Peter Obi’s 2million march
‘I hope you get 200 persons’ El-Rufai mocks Peter Obi’s 2million march: The Governor of Kaduna State, Nasir El-Rufai, has mocked the Labour party Presidential candidate, Peter Obi and his supporters over their plans to hold a “two-million-man march” for Peter Obi in Kaduna state.
With the 2023 general elections barely six months away, Obi’s supporters have been holding marches to canvass support for the ex-Anambra State governor.
Recently, there was a march for the LP presidential candidate in Nasarawa State as well as Cross River State.
Taking to Twitter on Monday, El-Rufai of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), said he hopes the Obi supporters are able to gather 200 people in the streets of Kaduna for the march.
According to the Kaduna governor, they can only get the figure they are projecting by “importing” people to the state.
“In Kaduna? Not Kaduna Twitter?” the governor who is completing his second term said.
“I hope you get Two Hundred persons on the streets, including those ‘imports’ that can’t open their shops on Mondays, and came on an overnight bus last night!! I just dey laff, wallahi tallahi!!”
This has sparked a lot of commotion on the twitter space, as supporters of the Labour Party Presidential candidate, Peter Obi has slammed Kaduna State Governor, Nasir El-Rufai for making such sensitive statement and uploading same on his official page. The supporters also resolved to not be deterred by the statement as they have resolved to go ahead with the match and dare the governor to see the crowd they would pull as they have done in several states of the country.
It became imperative for the supporters of Obi to have these rallies, as they hope to prove that beyond their support on social media, they extend same to the grassroot.
