Ex-British PM Tony Blair Battered on Twitter Nigeria After Visit to El-Rufai [TWEETS]

Former British Prime Minister, Mr. Tony Blair, has come under fire in the Nigerian social media after a visit to Kaduna State during which he reportedly pledged his support for Kaduna State Governor, Nasir Ahmad El-Rufai.

Some Nigerians who took to micro-blogging site, Twitter, wondered how much of Kaduna State taxpayers’ money was paid to Blair to associate his brand with the Kaduna State governor under whose watch hundreds of Nigerian Shiite muslims were massacred by the Nigerian Army in 2015.

Other commentators noted that Blair’s visit was a conveyance of the British government’s support for El-Rufai to become Nigeria’s Vice-President, should anything happen to ailing President Muhammadu Buhari who for many weeks has been in London on an indefinite sick leave.
