Everything you need to live well
Bello, a son of Kaduna State Governor, Nasir El-Rufai today armed himself with insults and threats in response to Nigerian social media users who criticized his comment on United States President Donald Trump.
On Sunday morning [April 4], Bello in a tweet inferred that the President of the United States, Donald Trump is an “incompetent leader”. The governor’s son further said that this term was applicable to the leaders of “a few states in Nigeria” too.
“There is nothing as radioactive as an incompetent leader during a time of crisis. The United States of America is a case in point. A few states in Nigeria too.”
The subliminal jab at Trump did not go well with a number of social media users who reacted by bringing to bare comparisons between the administration of Donald Trump and Nigeria’s President Buhari as well as Bello’s father, Nasir El-Rufai.
However, in his comeback response to the criticisms, Bello resorted to insults and threats including calling.
When advised to retract this DM, he stated expressly that he will stand by his words:
Bello’s mother, Hadiza Isma El-Rufai in response to those tagging her to call her son to order stated that she saw no wrong in his actions as he mere dished out was served to him.
A twitter user, @MrLekanAdigun, speaking in support, opined that his position as El-Rufai’s son doesn’t take away his freedom of speech.
