Bashir , son of Governor Nasir el -Rufai of Kaduna State, says the leader of the defunct Biafran Republic, Dim Chukwuemeka Ojukwu , was a failed hero .Bashir said this in a Twitter post while reacting to a comment by one of his followers.
However , when his error was brought to his notice , rather than apologising , Bashir said , “ Knowing your failed hero’ s homeland that plunged misguided idiots into a civil war and ran away is not my concern . You do your research and find out his hometown .
“ I could care less for the man. And he will forever remain a dent in our history . ”
When the follower reacted by saying Ojukwu would remain greater than Governor el – Rufai , who kneels down to greet the President and others , Bashir said Ojukwu was a fearful man who ran away when the Nigerian forces were closing in on him .
He added , “ Don ’ t cry please . Your hero was a failure that ran away when he saw imminent defeat . Get out of here . ”
The governor , like his son , is not new to controversy.
El – Rufai last week said over 60 per cent of Christians in Southern Kaduna would not vote for him and this was one of the reasons he decided to pick a Muslim running mate .
He also made a mockery of a photograph of President Goodluck Jonathan kneeling down to pray on a pilgrimage in Jerusalem in 2013 .
The governor has also been criticised many times by the Christian Association of Nigeria , especially when he made some remarks about Jesus Christ , which many found appalling in January 2013 .
The sarcastic post, which many Nigerians , especially Christians , took offence at , was directed at defending a former Education minister , Mrs Oby Ezekwesili , and attacking the Minister of Information, Labaran Maku ; Special Assistant to the President on Public Affairs Dr Doyin Okupe ; and Presidential Adviser on Media and Publicity , Dr Reuben Abati .
He wrote , “ If Jesus criticises Jonathan ’ s government, Maku , Abati or Okupe will say that he slept with Mary Magdalene . ”
