Over the years Kaduna has been a testing ground for all kinds ideas. When Sani Yerima first introduced Sharia, it was not effective in Zamfara, he had to visit Kaduna and test its popularity with the Muslim Unmah. Although many didn’t fully grasp the ‘true intention’ of Bakura, they swallowed it whole until Kaduna burned down. 


El Rufai became governor months back and the first thing he went for was the check points and road blocks put in place to check BH and all kinds of insecurity in Kaduna. One of his reasons was that his people where being frustrated by the soldiers and punished unduly.

Few months down the line, criminal elements returned and now kidnap women and children, rob people in their homes, go to villages  (Birnin Gwari, Zangon Kataf and co) slaughtering people, rustling cattles, and all kind of criminal activity you can think of. Right on Ahmadu Bello Way, once it’s dark, you need God to get hi me safely else you’re robbed, maimed, raped or killed.

And instead if looking for solutions, our deaf governor is busy demolishing homes of retired civil servants, asking churches to come for licenses to preach the word of God, changing school curriculum, embarked on some phantom verification exercise, slapping and getting slapped because he thinks he’s smart, watched Shiites get slaughtered in droves, making a television broadcast condemning them and rushing to form a commission of inquiry into the killings even after visiting same man to beg for votes. Anything you can think of that is anti people, Nasir does them all.

Those who love Nigeria should and must pray for her. What I see coming is not good o! Those that have El Rufai’s ears should also pull them and warn him, “if he doesn’t retrace his steps and things get out of hand in Kaduna, no matter the number of mallams he gives money to pray, it will fail”.


Kaduna must not be used as a test ground for their nonsense or else God will fight and no one will be spared.
