Number one bestselling author and former aide to ex-President Goodluck Jonathan, Pastor Reno Omokri, has claimed that the Kaduna state governor, Nasir el-Rufai had, in 2011, sent him an email wherein he used derogatory name to describe women of southern Nigeria.
In a couple of tweets on Saturday, Pastor Omokri challenged the governor to deny ever sending him such mail. He said he would make the email public if the governor tries to deny it. This is coming just hours after Omokri took on the governor for calling the vice presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Peter Obi, a “tribal bigot.” Governor el-Rufai had tweeted saying, “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 an 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.” But Pastor Omokri disagreed with him saying, “Just negodu the fellow that is today accusing @PeterGregoryObi of being a tribal bigot. @elrufai, the same fellow that accused Pastor Ayo Oritsejafor of being behind Boko Haram. The same man who blasphemed our Lord and Saviour.” Also, a twitter user with handle, @chxta soon tweeted in reaction to Governor el-Rufai’s comment on Obi saying, “Dear @elrufai, you tweet from yesterday was tasteless. If we want to call people tribal bigots for deporting their fellow citizens, there’re enough bigots to go around.
