Former Minister of Aviation, Femi Fani-Kayode said the action of the Governor of Kaduna State, Nasir El-Rufai who is a Muslim amd picking another Muslim as his running mate for the 2019 governorship election in the state that is made up 50% Christains is divisive, insultive, provocative and dangerious.
Governor El-Rufai, a Muslim, had on Friday 2nd November announced that he will be running for second term with Hadiza Balarabe, another Muslim.
Hadiza Balarabe is the current Executive Secretary of the Kaduna State Primary Health
Care Development Agency, a position she has held since February 2016.
She had earlier worked with El-Rufai in 2004 when he was the Minister of FCT, Abuja.
El-Rufai was the Minister of FCT from 17th July 2003 to 27th July
Kayode in a statement on Saturday explained that the Governor’s action was wrong because 50 per cent of people in the state are Christians.
In a tweet, Fani-Kayode wrote: “It is wrong, divisive, dangerous, provocative and insulting for Nasir El Rufai to field a Muslim/Muslim ticket in the governorship election in a state like Kaduna in which 50% of the people are Christian and in which thousands of Christians were butchered over the last 3 years.”
