You need more lessons in English Language -El-Rufai tells Channels TV’s Maupe


Governor Nasir El-Rufai who appeared as a guest on a Channels TV show anchored by Maupe Ogun, reacted to a comment about Shiites leader Ibrahim Zakzaky credited to him.

Governor Nasir El-Rufai who stated that his comment about Ibrahim Zakzaky being an animal is not denigrating, told Maupe Ogun that she needs more lessons in English if she thinks it is. Watch the video below;

Recall that El-Rufai had said that his problem with the El-Zakzaky’s movement, was their refusal to acknowledge the state government, the federal government, and even Nigeria’s constitution.

He said, “Shi’ites are citizens of Nigeria and they are entitled to practice their religion, there is no problem with that. Those protesting for the release of El-Zakzaky are not necessarily Shias, they are members of El-Zakzaky’s movement.

“In Kaduna, there are two other Shi’ite organizations that don’t protest, they don’t block highways, they recognize the President of Nigeria and me as the governor of the state and we don’t have a problem with them.

“The one that we have problems with is the Islamic Movement of Nigeria, IMN, headed by El-Zakzaky, they don’t recognise the President of Nigeria as sovereign, they don’t recognize me as governor. Their allegiance is to another country and their objective is to turn Nigeria into an Islamic republic.

“They are against the state, never recognized the Nigerian constitution.

“I know El-Zakzaky personally, we were both students at the Amadu Bello University in Zaria, we were both active in the Muslim Students Society so I know the animal I’m dealing with. Many of those making comments on this issue don’t know the history, I was in ABU when El-Zakzaky was dismissed, I know him.”
