Bashir, the son of Kaduna State Governor, Nasir El-Rufai, has risen to the defence of President Muhammadu Buhari over his alleged incompetence.
Bashir, who has been vocal in his opinions, said on his Twitter handle on Monday that President Buhari is not hated by some Nigerians because of incompetence but because of his “perceived identity.”
The younger el-Rufai, however, noted that the perceived enemies of Buhari are too shameless to admit why they dislike the president.
He wrote: ”They do not dislike President Buhari for his ‘alleged’ incompetence, they hate the president for his perceived identity and they are too shameless to at least admit that on a basic level so we can all fundamentally recognize the beast staring at us as a nation.”
Many Nigerians particularly members of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and other opposition elements have continued to accuse Buhari of incompetence over his alleged inability to effectively address the country’s security and economic challenges.
