Collections From The Archives Of El-Rufai’s Baseless And Unsupported Disparaging Remarks About Leaders By Salami,E.O,Founder,ATIKU CARES,Abuja

Gov.Nasir El-Rufai’s baseless and unsupported remarks on leaders most especially the people that he benefited immensely from without any facts have become too much and he should be taken with a pinch of salts.

It is time to dig up all his double mouthed statements and show to the world.

He is a Nigerian phenomenon who seems to attract attention with every moves he makes.

The question that comes to my mind is,does this dude have the moral standing to tell that the former VP,Atiku Abubakar is corrupt, that for a man like el-Rufai who has a notorious reputation for disparaging religions and their icons, including Jesus Christ, though he eventually apologized.The attack on Atiku again was the least surprising. It is noted that if he could go to such irreverent extent to disparage religious icons, who is an ordinary mortal like Abubakar, any man that can cross the boundary of reason and decency, deserves prayers rather than anger.That is exactly what El-Rufai needs now and we are going to give a  chronological account with pictorial evidences of all his disparaging remarks about past and present leaders some of whom he has praised and later castigated.He is indeed demonic personified.

Let us quickly go a bit down memory-lane when he launched his book riddled with lies titled”Accidental Public Servant”

It is really unimaginable that one man could talk so intensely about his relationship with national leaders, his in-depth knowledge of Nigerian politics, and his overriding love for his country and yet hardly admit that, in his previous capacities as FCT Minister and BPE Director General, he made some fundamental errors of judgment. El-Rufai didn’t talk about his flaws because, as a super-human “accidental public servant” and a folk hero in Nigerian politics, he had no blemishes; just a victim of “public accidents”.Ironically, virtually everyone that El-Rufai talked about suffered from human flaws or was weighed down with a baggage of human weaknesses. From Obasanjo, Atiku Abubakar, Muhammadu Buhari, Yar’Adua, Jonathan and others like then Transport Minister, Ojo Madueke;none of them escaped El-Rufai’s acid test of human character. In El-Rufai’s judgment, Obasanjo was an unforgiving politician; Yar’Adua was spineless; Nuhu Ribadu was vindictive and politically naïve; even Buhari, who received a sprinkle of praises from El-Rufai, came across astoo rigid and inflexible.While El-Rufai was hard and often vicious in his assessment of these national leaders, he never acknowledged that he had his own imperfections. This makes El-Rufai the patron saint of righteousness in Nigeria.

Our leaders most especially the President of Nigeria,Muhammadu Buhari should be wary of Nasir El-rufai and every other Nigerians as he is a serpent who will adore you today and tomorrow backstab you.He should not be trusted and taken serious with his unbridled tongue without concrete facts.

Now as Kaduna State Governor,he has committed more atrocities against God and humanity.He is of double standards in all he does,a perpetual betrayer,the Governor always betrays his benefactors.

President Buhari should be careful of El-Rufai as his latest outburst is not surprising because of his antecedent of betraying all his known benefactors both in politics and in private life.

Let us take a closer look at his disparaging remark on President Muhammadu Buhari

Buhari has nothing to offer…should retire says El-Rufai written by Our ReporterAugust 18, 2013

The attention of Mallam Nasir El-Rufai has been drawn to statements from Generals Muhammadu Buhari and Ibrahim Babangida purporting to be responses to the advice he gave both men to retire.Since Babangida libelled whole generations of Nigerian youth as being unfit for leadership, age has become an issue in the coming election.Mallam El-Rufai wishes to remind General Buhari that he has remained perpetually unelectable because his record as military head of state, and afterwards, is a warning that many Nigerians have wisely heeded. His insensitivity to Nigeria’s diversity and his parochial focus are already well-known. In 1984, Buhari allowed 53 suitcases belonging to his ADC’s father to enter Nigeria unchecked at a time the country was exchanging old currency for new.  Against all canons of legal decency, he used retroactive laws to execute three young men for drug-peddling after they were convicted by a military tribunal and not regular courts of law. Buhari was so high handed that he gave himself and his officials immunity even from truthful reporting. That obnoxious Decree 4, against which truth was no defence, was used to jail journalists and attempt to cow the media as a whole. That tyrannical legislation shows the essence of his intolerance. These are facts of recent history.The story of counter-trade and import licensing, the cornerstone of Buhari’s stone-age economic strategy and those whose interests it served, is a tale for another day.Mallam El-Rufai respects both Generals Buhari and Babangida as elder statesmen.He believes their age, experience and guidance may contribute to the success of any future government. El-Rufai however believes that it is time for a new generation of leaders with new thinking and wholesome democratic attitude to move our nation forward by Muyiwa Adekeye


El-Rufai who eventually castigated Jonathan once praised and tagged him as clean and honest.

Jonathan is clean, honest – WikiLeaks quotes El-Rufai

On October 8, 2011

Contrary to his scathing criticisms, former Minister of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) Mallam Nasir El-Rufai gave President Goodluck Jonathan a clean bill of health on financial accountability and transparency on the international front,a fresh report by Wikileaks has revealed.In a United States diplomatic cable just made public by the whistle blowing organization, El-Rufai described President Jonathan as “ clean and honest”.

El-rufai however Tweeted and Posted on March 17, 2013

Former FCT minister Nasir El Rufai calls Pres. Jonathan a scumbag, he said this via his twitter handle @elrufai, The former minister went further by saying President Jonathan has Thieves as siblings. See tweet below.

His judgment of Yar’Adua’s leadership qualities is too narrow-minded and extraordinarily selfish. His comments against Jonathan depict El-Rufai not as a true Nigerian patriot or a loyal public servant but as a callous man whose activities are driven by a tribal agenda.On the controversial issue of the third term agenda, El-Rufai’s assessment of Obasanjo, his former boss, exposed his capriciousness: first, as a man who should never be trusted (evidence in the sabotage he orchestrated behind the scenes against the third term project) and; second, as a man without principles; whose loyalty bends with the wind. Of course, Obasanjo has many flaws but why did it take El-Rufai too long to discover Obasanjo’s blemishes? And why did he choose to talk about them now?


Barely a week before the book launch, the former minister disparaged the Christian religion when he tweeted that “If Jesus criticises Jonathan’s government; Maku/Abati/Okupe will say that he slept with Mary Magdalene.” Though he has apologised for that remark, both Christiansand Moslems alike rose in condemnation of the comment.

El–Rufai insulted Nigeria President,Jonathan for resorting to prayers.The question aroused if he boldly look Buhari in the face and tell him what he told Jonathan?

Here is the excerpt:


Apparently in a move to shrug off initial criticism that he was a religious bigot, El-Rufai, who describes himself as a “certified ruffler of feathers” tweeted that he would have gladly posted such a tweet on his Twitter page if the President were a Muslim praying in the mosque.

A.Buhari is observing the lesser Hajj. “If he (a muslim President) prays instead of honest work, yes!” el-Rufai had tweeted, in response to a query by a certain Editi Akpan, who was worried about the disparaging tweets insulting former President Jonathan.

President Muhammadu Buhari should expect a disparaging remark as well soonest if El-Rufai fails to get his ways in his desires.

Throwback pictures depicting clearly his  varying demonic ways of his relationships with leaders


This is when El-Rufai was apparently begging for Shiite votes. he needed votes, so you see the respectful handshake and the genuflecting posture but today he turned against the man

See pictures below:

Nigerians should be wary of midget,El-Rufai as he says this today and the next day he says another.He radiates the image of a man who is specially equipped with an over-abundance of wisdom. But the image that El-Rufai cuts in the book is that of a deeply frustrated and embittered red-eyed vindictive and cantankerous man who is determined to exact vengeance against his real and perceived enemies. He often spoke as if people owed their lives to him, or, as if the nation owes him some kind of public debt.Nigerians are no more gullible as your antics of kneeling down to greet someone while holding a stone in his hand to his benefactors is now to the open
