Desist From Unguarded Religious Comments - APC Chieftain Cautions El-Rufai

A chieftain of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) in Plateau state, Samuel Kwamkur, has admonished former Governor Nasir El-Rufai against making unguarded comments capable of disrupting the peace of the country.

Gists9ja gathered that Kwankur, who is a former National Director of the Christian Association of Nigeria, stated this at a press conference in Jos on Sunday.

Kwankur was reacting to statements credited to the El-Rufai in which the former governor allegedly 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.

According to Kwankur, El-Rufai told his audience that in the course of the electioneering campaigns, when “they”(Christians ) tried to ask questions on why the Muslim/Muslim Ticket, “he deceived them that it was not for religious dominance when in reality, the tickets both nationally and at the state level were for Islamic dominance”.

He alleged that in the video containing the speech which has gone viral on social media, El-Rufai further said that the victory of Bola Tinubu had silenced the Christian Association of Nigeria, adding that “he [El-Rufai] will sustain an Islamic-dominated government for 20-years and unending not only in Kaduna State but in Nigeria at large”

Kwankur expressed displeasure over the former governor’s utterances citing that the classification of the citizens of his state as ‘them versus us’ “meant that El-rufai could be exonerated from the wanton killings, demolition of houses and places of worship of Christians in Kaduna”.

He advised El-Rufai not to use such utterances to mislead Nigerians into thinking that President Tinubu’s electoral victory was purposely to Islamize Nigeria.
