Senator Ben Bruce has reacted to Governor Nasir El-rufai’s ‘Body Bag’ comment revealing how it would affect the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari.
PoliticsNGR earlier reported that Kaduna State governor, Nasir El-rufai ruffled a lot of feathers when he threatened that foreigners who intervene in the upcoming elections will be carried out of the country in Body Bags. He said;
“Those that are calling for anyone to come and intervene in Nigeria, we are waiting for the person that would come and intervene, they would go back in body bags,”
El-Rufai’s threat has since sparked severe criticisms and reactions from Nigerians and the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP.
PDP has in its reaction threatened to pull out of the peace accord. Reacting to the development, Bruce wrote on Twitter;
“Is this madness? President Buhari if you don’t reject this evil, this fellow will bring your government into disrepute!
“Never in Nigeria’s history have we ever had such recklessness in a public official. I urge APC to publicly repudiate this.
“In this election season, we have heard so many violence inspiring utterances and rhetoric, to the extent that I feel compelled to urge all of Nigeria’s leaders to remember that you can’t claim to be a leader and then speak like a destroyer. You must choose one or the other.”
