His words: “If you are not happy with appointments made, you can go and climb Kufena mountain, fall and die.
Nigerians on twitter have reacted to the uncharitable statement by the governor directed at the citizens of the state he swore to govern..

When Adams Oshiomhole told a widow to "go and die", we were unanimous in condemnation. Why can't we do the same to El Rufai?

Y'all knew everything about Elrufai before clamouring for him to #SabeKaduna. Accept him with his flaws & let him save one northern state

Oshiomhole to widow: Go and die. Al-Makura: Assaults road user. Amosun: Arrests blogger. El-Rufai: Fall and die. APC = Recklessness maybe.

If You Condem Oshiomhole " Go and Die " and You are Here Embracing or Defending El Rufai " Fall and Die ".. You are Just a trained hypocrite

Our leaders must learn to choose their words carefully. Go And Die! = Oshiomole Go To Hell! =Al Makura Fall And Die! = El Rufai ????

This attitude of Public Servants telling their employers to "Go And Die", it is very disturbing.
