Governor Nasir El-Rufai has warned social media users against writing about Kaduna state. This was during his speech at the Abuja book launch of socio-economic and political commentator, JJ Omojuwa,
President Buhari’s media aide, Bashir Ahmed in his tweets from the event said the Kaduna state Governor warned against writing unfavourable things about Kaduna state. Mallam Nasir El-Rufai who reportedly said he is watching, added that the Kaduna State Government has a very strong law to get anyone.
The deleted tweet reads;
If you want to tweet anything about Kaduna be very careful because I am watching…we have a very strong law to get you – Mal Nasiru @elRufai at the @Omojuwa’s #DigitalWealthBook Abuja Launch #CODED2019
When bashed over the tweet which ignited controversy, Bashir wrote;
Mr. Man whatever sound the tweet gives you, that’s the actual sound of it. The Governor has spoken, it’s now up to you to decide whether to be careful or to be reckless when tweeting about his State. Good luck!
