‘Man To Man Is So Unjust’ – el-Rufai Laments On Twitter

Former Kaduna state governor, Nasir el-Rufai, has taken to Twitter to share a cryptic message a few weeks after the legislature refused to confirm his nomination as a minister.

El-Rufai’s name was among the 48 ministerial nominees sent to the Senate by President Bola Tinubu for confirmation as a minister.

But the former Kaduna state governor and two other nominees were not confirmed by the senate after screening on August 7.


The senate cited “adverse” security reports against el-Rufai as the reason behind the decision and said he ought to await clearance.

The development generated reactions within and outside the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).

Despite reports that el-Rufai had indicated a lack of willingness to remain in the race, the former governor has remained silent on the issue.

However, in a post on X, formerly known as Twitter, on Sunday, el-Rufai shared the lyrics of Bob Marley’s ‘Who The Cap Fit’.

“Man to man is so unjust, children/ Ya don’t know who to trust/ Your worst enemy could be your best friend/ And your best friend, your worse enemy/ Some will eat and drink with you,” the former governor wrote.

“Thank God, we’re past the worse/ Hypocrites and parasites (hypocrites and parasites)/ Will come up and take a bite (will come up and take a bite)/ And if your night should turn to day/ A lot of people would run away/ And who the cap fit let them wear it!/ Who the cap fit let them wear it!”

In what appears to be a reference to El-Rufai’s post, Shehu Sani, former Kaduna senator, tweeted that he has “turned him into a Rastafarian and Reggae artist”.
