The Governor of Kaduna State, Mallam Nasir el-Rufai has placed a curse on the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and others he accused of spreading false information about him.
The All Progressives Congress (APC) governor placed the curse following rumours of a rift between himself and the National Chairman of the party, Adams Oshiomhole.
A group identified as PDP Vanguard had taken to Twitter to share the rumour on Saturday.
The group quoted el-Rufai as threatening to deal with Oshiomhole should he attempt to give an automatic ticket to the senator representing Kaduna Central senatorial district, Sen. Shehu Sani, to seek re-election in 2019.
El-Rufai has been having a running battle with the three senators from the state – Sani, Sen. Suleiman Hunkuyi (Kaduna North), and Sen. Danjuma Laah (Kaduna South).
Elrufai Vs Oshiomole
"Oshiomole is an ingrate, he performed woefully as a governor of Edo state.
He colluded with OBJ to stop increasing worker's minimum wage when he was NLC Chairman

But the governor, who also took to his verified Twitter handle to dispel the rumour, said that it could only have emanated from “cursed” people.
He tweeted, “PDP IS ALREADY CURSED! MAY ALLAH CURSE AND EXPOSE THE WENDELL SIMLINS, THE AUTHORS OF THESE FAKE NEWS AND SIMILAR PURVEYORS OF FALSEHOOD NATIONWIDE, AMEN.”
