Former Aviation Minister, Chief Femi Fani-Kayode has lambasted Kaduna State Governor, Mallam Nasir el-Rufai for choosing a Muslim running mate ahead of the gubernatorial election in the state.

El-Rufai, a Muslim, on Friday announced his choice of Hadiza Balarabe, another Muslim, as his choice of deputy governorship candidate, to replace the current Deputy Governor, Barnabas Bala, who has opted to go to the National Assembly and has since emerged as the APC’s candidate for the southern Kaduna senatorial district.

Fani-Kayode described El-Rufai’s action as “wrong” and “divisive” in a state where “50% of the people are Christian”.

He said, “It is wrong, divisive, dangerous, provocative and insulting for Nasir El Rufai to field a Muslim/Muslim ticket in the governorship election in a state like Kaduna in which 50% of the people are Christian and in which thousands of Christians were butchered over the last 3 years.”
