2019 Elections: I Didn’t Ask Nigerians To Kill Any Foreigner They See — El-Rufai

On February 9, 2019 89 Comments

The Governor of Kaduna State, Nasir El-Rufai, has said he never told Nigerians to kill foreigners during elections.

This was in an attempt to clarify a recent statement where he was said to have threatened foreign observers ahead of 2019 presidential election.

ORIENTAL TIMES reported that Governor El-Rufai, in an interview on NTA during the week, had threatened that those who intervene in the forthcoming general elections will “go back in body bags.”

But speaking on Oath TV on Friday evening, the Governor said he had not asked any Nigerian to kill any foreigner they see during elections.

According to him, “The government of Nigeria must invite observers. But if we notice, there is a coordinated plan to delegitmize the election; to already declare the election illegitimate even before they were conducted.

“And it has the support of Nigerian collaborators and foreign interest. And we must speak out.

“We must speak out. And that is what is appearing to be the way the PDP is hobnopping with some of the foreign interests here, we have to make the observation.

“They are here to observe. They are not here to intervene. They are not here to lay the foundations for crisis in Nigeria. Which is what the PDP are preparing for as their last ultimate option and we are aware of it.

“This is the essence of my statement and I don’t want anyone to confuse what I said to mean that Nigerians will kill any foreigner they see.”

    Let me just show us how a body bag looks like just in case you haven’t seen one before.

    According to Wikipedia, “a body bag, also known as a cadaver pouch or human remains pouch (HRP), is a non-porous bag designed to contain a human body, used for the storage and transportation of corpses. Body bags can also be used for the storage of corpses within morgues.”

    Governor Nasir El-Rufai can’t make this calamitous statement and still walk freely on our streets. He simply unveiled what APC bequeaths and if you want to see our foreign relations destroyed by one who suffers from oral diarrhea, then bring APC back to power again. While doing that, remember we are an import dependent, as well as grants, donor and aids dependent country.

    You are well understood…. We are not all kinds.
    You are not asking to kill all foreigners seen during the election, after all the governors from Niger Republic were sighted in your party’s campaign in Borno State and no body said anything to them but to be probably killed or to go home in “body bags”are those who will be oppositions to your(APC’s) planned manipulation of the outcome of the election, we understand you rufai.
