I’ll consider joining PDP if Satan converts to Islam – El-Rufai

A former Minister of the Federal Capital Territory [FCT] and chieftain of the All Progressive Congress [APC], Nasir El-Rufai, has ruled out the possibility of leaving his party for the ruling People Democratic Party, PDP.

In a tweet Wednesday, Mr. El Rufai appeared to be reacting to the defection of a former chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, Nuhu Ribadu, who decamped from the APC to PDP weekend.

Mr. Ribadu is also a former presidential candidate of the defunct Action Congress of Nigeria, ACN, which is part of the APC today.

“I will only consider the choice of defection to the People Democratic Party, PDP when Satan repents and converts to Islam,” Mr. El Rufai said in a Twitter message.

Mr. El-Rufai was a PDP leader during the Obasanjo Administration before Joining the Congress for Progressive Change [CPC], which later transformed into the APC.

The former minister’s posters have flooded parts of Kaduna State, but it is not clear whether he plans to seek an elected office in the state in 2015.

    That is a principled position. I hope all haters will not Misrepresent the metaphor he used for a jihad. Anyone who miscontrues it had his or her bath with salt to prevent ebola. Let’s see the ignorant ones!

    • Hope

      From what I read there is no use of the word Jihad. Stand to be corrected.

      • alao

        Please, Read my post carefully and understand the context in which the word was used. It was metaphorical.

        • redeem

            …….There is no killing of the beatle. El-Rufai spoke english and good one for that matter. PDP is satanic, super SATANIC indeed. Satan CANNOT and will NEVER convert to Islam. Satan is the accursed one since the day he misled Adam and Eve to commit a sin by eating the forbidden fruit. We do not expect El-Rufai to explain what he said, the wise among us will understand and mischief makers will make the loudest and funny noise. El-Rufai has the right to talk and and he knows his worth. People can abuse him, called Islam and muslims by what ever names, it does not matter. Islam is for GOD and is from GOD, the ONLY ONE GOD !!! The blind, the deaf, and dump will never understand. GOD IS GREAT>GOD PROTECT US AND EL-RUFAI>GOD PROTECT NIGERIA. Oya, let the ABUSES come, am waiting for the empty minds with their barrages. No worry, freedom of SPEECH. This is Nigeria EBOLA and ……..? Bye Bye.

      the evil that men do lives after them————————————————-this is a man who is supposed to be in mourning-opening his rotten fulani mouth–as if he owns the world –there is no feelings in him that he has just lost two of his kids–very sad for the north to produce such a soul———–u call this metaphor abi—————–its madness of the highest order———elrufai is sick–needs urgent medical help—-sure he has brain fag-ebola fag

      • alao

        I am sure you are aware that the fear of fulani is the beginning of wisdom. You can be reached in your sleep. It’s not about carrying knives and guns. It’s all up to you.
        2. No sane person will wish even his fiercest enemy to lose a child talkless of two kids. Even mentioning it with mockery is vile and savage.
        We all pray that our test of faith from God should me mild. He has been tested by God,yet he has not committed suicide. He is indeed strong. May God continue to guide me.

      What an apt nickname for him!

  • Nazif

    What do you expect from a hostage who’s facing criminal charges and wanton abuse of office in court. He has to remain in the opposition and particularly behind General for protection against his past misdeeds. Anytime the case is mentioned, he cries, claiming that he is being which hunted for being an opposition member. Anyhow, his accidental public service was in the PDP. If the party is satanic, he is among those who nurtured it to maturity.

    • alao

      Nazif, I believe a smart and sensible will not stay in an opposition party and criticise govt. The smart thing is for a crook to run to the nest of pdp to seek protection. The killers of bola ige,dele giwa and all the evil men in nigeria are in pdp nest basking. That tells you that elrufai has a strong and principled character. Mention one person with his intellect and character in pdp!!!
      Please, learn to criticise with objectivity and desist from spreading hate and mediocrity.
      If I may ask,are you one of those who had their bath with salt to prevent ebola?

      • Truth

        Keep deceiving yourself. There nothing like principle in El-Ruffian. He is only after jihadist agenda and egoistic interest. When he was in the PDP the party was the best. Ruffian is nothing but an empty headed, frustrated opportunist.

        • alao

          The question still remains the same..Name one person with his intellect and character in pdp. Opportunist or not, Abuja was a better city during his time. Stop the hate and reason rationally. E bi like se u sef follow bath with salt. Gullible Nigerians

        • alao

          Saro wiwa was tried by a civilian tribunal and was found guilty of murder. He was guilty. Only Sen Bernard Birabi and Chief Garrick leton (The Founder of Mossop) escaped Saro wiwas claws. Has anyone challenged his trial in court? If yes,what is the verdict.
          2. Gen Buhari was in charge PTF which had no jurisdiction in policy and judicial authority to intervene on National Security.
          3. Throwing Bombs in Lagos was not as bad as the bombs been thrown in abuja,kaduna and nyaya in recent times.

      • Nazif

        O’boy, was it intelligence or courage that led Elrufai to accidentally began his political sojourn in the PDP? Was it intelligence or courage that made him to contribute in nurturing what he now likens to satan? Was it intelligence or courage that motivated him to steal and commit excesses while in office to the extent that a ‘Satan’ government could not tolerate him and consequently wants to bring him to justice? I think you are misfiring. But Elrufai knows the atrocities he committed. He’s a mere crook, unintelligent, uncourageous!

        • alao

          Was intelligence that made you a NIGERIAN? Think before you write

        • Bigtin

          Haba, Mallam! Lol

  • longben

    How come “tiny men” ( no pun intended) always tend to have over-sized egos? Who cares if this dwarf joins PDP, fries akara at the junction or decides to go to mars with an okada? Rufai is like the proverbial chicken that pulls no weight whether it is carried on the head or allowed to walk to the market itself. Mr Rufai, you are of NO CONSEQUENCE politically or otherwise. Get that into your tiny little skull. someone stealing a tea spoon full of sand from the Sahara desert will create more concern than your empty rhetorics

    • alao

      You no go school? You are asking a tiny people have large egos..study psychology,you may yet understand. Elrufai has a rare asset which most don’t have,he is intelligent and courageous. He doesn’t need to throw money or beg for votes,rather you would beg him to join your movement coz of his credibility,intelligence and courage. Study history, you may yet find figures like that.

      • longben

        Tell Mr Rufai that when he comes back from Mars. As for “Mr tiny big ego” I guess he was born yesterday. Where was his “intelligence and courage” before GEJ? Maybe a list of his intelligent and courageous achievements for his over 50 years on earth might do some good!

        • alao

          Read his book accidental public servant,you will find all that you need about him.
          Acquiring immortality is understood by on a few men in a century. It takes character,intelligence and courage. Secondly,becoming president doesn’t guarantee you immortality. Unfortunately longben, your estimation of achievement is acquiring office like GEJ thinks and most miopic nigerians. The reality is what you do in office that tells if you have achieved or not. After century, most names you even presidents will evaporate into oblivion. That is when immortality comes into play. I believe you are aware that Benjamin Franklin on the $100 bill was never a president in the united states. I submit again, becoming president or acquiring any political office doesn’t guarantee immortality!

          • longben

            Okay, since you dont seem to understand my point, i will try to make myself a little clearer. Where was mr tiny When men like the evil genius IBB instituitionalized and quasi-legalized corruption in Nigeria. I guess he was not born then!! Where was mr tiny when the “googled one” Abacha rode Nigeria like his private horse and left us all dazed and beaten in the gutters? Does mr tiny have an opinion on that or history started in Nigeria 5 years ago? Where was he and his courage and intelligence when Baba Iyabo took the country for a ride for 8 whole years and we didnt hear a whimper from mr tiny? Know where he was? In Abuja, stealing people lands and redistributing same to family and friends. Just because it is Nigerian were our poltical over-lords think we all suffer from self-induced amnesia (they are right by the way) does not mean that we cannot smell inpugnity sometimes. Give me the late Gani Fawehimi, give me Anthony Enahoro, give me Dele Giwa and i will show you courage and intelligence and not some noise making liliput who assumes he is more inelligent than the president and therefore should show no respect to his person or office. Out-sized egos coloured with impunity (shebi naija ni) are not virtues because they degrade your humanity. Tell mr tiny i said so

          • alao

            Until you start been objective in your thought process, your vision will always skewed towards sentiments. Your post lacks objectivity, it’s mere sensation. When you relocate to Mars,then we can exchange ideas. Goodluck and Goodnight!

          • longben

            Objective your said? When supposedly “objective, intellingent and courageous” people are faced with superior arguments,they do what you just did, RUN-AWAY. Keep running all the way to mars where your mr tiny is waiting for you with his okada. Wish you both luck.

          • emmanuel

            What more can an objective man say? The likes of El- Rufai, Jibrin Ibrahim and co, were in the plundering chambers doing what the typical Hausa Fulani Muslims know how to do best – stealing, abetting or encouraging their ilks to do while the nation suffered in the hands his crooked clans men.

            They are today the face of morality and integrity.

      • longben

        And by the way, how come your “intelligent and courageous” Mr tiny always colours his jibes with religion? If his not trying to wrestle Jesus into the mud, he is up there throwing punches at Mohammed. WHY? What is so intelligent and courageous about that especially in the kind of charged situation we have in Nigeria, political or religious?

        • alao

          It tells you that he is a religious man,thus conscious of his islamic faith. Is that a crime or a sin? I also believe his level of intelligence transcends beyond religious spheres. His message is for those whom have attained such level of faith and civilization. It seems only nigerians in Mars understand stand. Take a voyage to Mars, then you shall attain such understanding

          • longben

            You are very wrong my friend!! It takes a man of courage and intelligence to understand when to talk sensibly and when to shut his mouth. Anybody can say what he is saying but an intelligent and courageous man will read the situation, Judge tempers and the try to balance his views. There is absolutely nothing intelligent or courageous about trying to throw more oil on a raging fire! What your mr tiny is trying to do is to inflame an already critical situation with the hope of benefiting form it. Those holy people he regularly uses for his fiendish political satires will brake his arms when the time is ripe. Mark my words.

          • alao

            I think you are low on food chain to understand. Probably your children’s children may understand. The human mind is evolutionary.

Your lack of respect for others is only shown by someone burn outside wedlock. Ask GEJ the saint to drop MUAZU and SAMBO with all the Hausa Fulani in his govt and see if he can win the Presidency by the votes from the creek because you have castigated the Igbos and the Yorubas. To you only the IJAWS are good people?

          • Yusuf Ismaila

            Hope, I think it is high time we stop responding to redeems’ comments on this flat form. He indicated himself to be uncultured. His thinking is he wins people to his side by denigrating them. Like you said either himself as mischief maker or the president that he claims to be supporting let him push out SAMBO, MUAZU, RUFA’I ALKALI, AND MANY OTHERS MUSLIMS AND NORHTENERS if he believes he does not need them in the Nigeria’s’ or PDP’s project. My believe is redeem is an APC person, he hides under this flat form to denigrate some of the PDP members to se if he can make some converts to APC. Just another political strategy.

      • emmanuel

        He who take land from people and allocate to an Obasanjo, his own wives, children and Cronies has integrity.

        I am sure you are a muslim. The bible that I read says those who remove ancient landmarks or enter the field of the fatherless would have God plead their cause and that is what El-Rufai is receiving and would until he dies (he is already politically dead).

    The man lack understanding, because the bible I read says the satan came to steal, kill and destroy and Islam is about the three. By the way, their alfa’a are also those who give satanic powers (juju and voodoo) to muslims.

    It is therefore preposterous for El-Rufai to say he would decamp to PDP when the satan becomes a muslim when naturally the Satan is one. The father, mother, son and daughter of killing, stealing and destruction are muslims.

    • duke

      You rather lack understanding my brother. He was making a figurative statement meaning PDP are killers, stealers and destroyers. E clear you?

If you say you are the one in charge of all levers of state and you can’t produce an iota of evidence to back up APC as boko haram, then we are in more trouble than I imagine , no wonder boko haram is unleashing mayhem and the clueless Dumbo ati all his security operatives don’t know what to do. So blame the opposition and divert the heat from yourself. Well we are not fools, until Dumbo and his henchmen arrest and produce evidence to back up their tired claims, I think their shouting from the roof top crying wolf is evidence enough for those that don’t cloud their judgement with egunje but for those who will stay the course and root this country from the clutches of this corrupt imbecilic government, 2015 will remove them all.

      • Truth

        On point. Simple and straight forward.

  • Wise Head

    So what are you waiting for, Mr. El-Rufai. Satan does not need to convert into an organisation in which he is already a chief member and prominent enforcer. Or, who do you think is the force behind the hideous atrocities of Boko Haram, ISIS Alquaeda, Al-Shabab, Taureg and the rest of the mindless, savage and satanic terrorists groups thriving in Islam and quoting the Koran to justify their abominable acts? Is Abubkar Shekau not known and addressed as “Sheik Abubakar Shekau”? Unless what you meant to say is: until God becomes associated with Islam! Satan has been a Muslim long before he conscripted Mohammed to unleash it in the world. And deep down your heart you know it, el-Refai, only you are unwilling to acknowledge it. Indeed, there is just no way God can be behind a religion that thrives on violence and bloodshed.

    • Hope

      Wise head! Have you so soon forgotten that IRA of Northern Ireland, LRA of Uganda, KKK of USA and even MEND of Nigeria to mention but a few are 100% Christians? Yet you allocate Satan to Islam? It seems you must have been a member of the Satan’s household and he deceived you by telling you what you wrote.

      • Wise Head

        These groups you mentioned do not claim to derive their inspiration and motivation from the Bible or God. They are merely fighting political wars, not religious one. They have no ambition of founding a Christian nation or forcing anyone to convert to Christianity and singling out non-Christians and killing them. Even the LRA of Uganda is completely political militant organisation, its name notwithstanding. And what makes you think they are Christians? Because they are not from the Northern Nigerian or Arab nations, so automatically they are Christians? These may never have entered any church since they were born, and there is nothing like a “Christian nation” (so much for your mention of USA and Ireland). Yet you have Hamas there with its Islamic political struggle and a Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt. And wherever they operate, their signature is violence and bloodshed. When Danish cartoonist (who may not even be a Christian – like most people in Europe) published his cartoons in far away Denmark, who made the Muslims in Nigeria to start killing their non-Muslim neigbours if not SATAN, their master? One someone in one remote part of the world offends Muslims, they would start killing Christians near them; who motivates the hate and violence that almost wholly defines Islam? SATAN of course. You better tell yourself the truth and quit that Satanic religion before it is too late. Who motivated Muslims to behead Gideon Akaluka or kill the innocent female teacher in Bauchi whose only offence was that she seized the books brought into the exam hall by a pupil and a koran was among the books? Why does Islam thrive on violence and bloodshed? Why do you fight for your god instead of allowing to fight for himself. Why do you always do the bidding the satan whom the Bible said came only to kill and to destroy (John 10:10) if he is not your master?

          Islam does not thrive on violence and bloodshed, there are well over a billion Muslims in the world. and Islam remains the fastest growing faith in the world. I have come to understand that people who preach religious bigotry such as yourself are often non rational beings. Just to educate you Joseph Kony stated that he got his inspiration from none other than Jesus Christ! I as a Muslim know enough to say to anyone that he is a mad man, what do you truly know about Islam? This is not to deny that there has being in recent years a puritanical and misguided school of thought in Islam, which is wrong and has no basis and foundation in Islamic scripture, but to say that Muslims worship satan is as misguided as the extremist Muslims who stone to death and behead and murder helpless people in the name of religion. Approach your questions about Islam with Logic and respect and ,many many Muslims will provide you with answers.

          • Wise Head

            stop trying to rationalize what is too obvious, even in Nigeria here. Stop living in denial. Swallow your pride and escape from the clutch of that thing you call religion.

          • Onike24

            Obvious to whom? Bigots like you….. I cannot think the way you think as you are quite clearly incapable of deep analytical thought. If I may educate you, what El Rufai was alluding too was the fact that satan herethereto known as Iblis can never be a Muslim, because he refused to bow down to man, telling Allah in his haughtiness ” I was made from fire and He ( Adam) was made from mud, how can I bow before him.? And he was cast out and became a fallen angel, but not before telling Allah how he will make man depart from his fellowship with Allah, to which Allah replied that he could try but NEVER suceed! Now all your ranting about ISIS and it’s ilk, makes no sense, or do you not know that ISIS and BH will murder Muslims who do not agree with them? or is Mohammed Asad the raison d etre of ISIS now a Christian?That there is a deviant strain of Islam is without controversy but to assert that over a billion people are like this bunch of reprobate savages is beyond contempt.

            Who the Muslims (driven by satanic blood-lust) kill, maim, rape or destroy does not matter. That they sometimes kill their fellow Muslims does not detract from the fact that muslims are generally violent and murderous people – that’s the point I have been making. Stop trying to run away from the obvious truth. It is ungodly and satanic to kill anyone whether Christian or Muslims! It is barbaric. Now look at this: If somebody comes out in the open today and burns the Bible and insults Jesus Christ, we will only pray that God should forgive him and make him to repent and be saved; and if he does not repent, we will leave him to God’s judgement. We don’t fight for our GOD or kill to defend Him! But let somebody try and come out today and even just throw the Koran on the ground. The next thing, even you talking here would join hands with your fellow bloody-thirsty muslims to cut off his head or beat him to death. If someone then takes it a bit further to insult Mohammed, then hell (where satan operates from) will be let loose! You will not only kill the person, YOU WILL ALSO KILL every other innocent person (mostly non-Muslims) that you find around. Tell me, if there is no violent (satanic) and murderous spirit that possess and motivate Muslims, why do you find it so easy to kill and maim at the slightest provocation? The school pupils who killed a Yoruba female teacher in Bauchi for seizing some books a boy came into an exam hall with (which incidentally had a Koran among them), where will classify them? Are they not only practicing the hate, violence and murder you taught them? Those whose killed their innocent neighbours in some Northern city several years ago(people with whom they had lived with for ages) just because some fellow in far away Denmark made a cartoon disparaging your Mohammed, were they not practicing what you taught them? Do they also belong to what you choose to call “deviant strain of Islam?” So, what is the difference between “good” and “bad” muslim when both can kill, instigate others to kill or take delight in seeing people killed? Stop deceiving yourself, all Islam is the same. They will kill at the slightest excuse; and if you would be honest with yourself, you (I mean YOU -Onike)) you always experience some inner animation and ecstasy any time your brother-Muslims kill because of Islam or Mohammed. I will never worship a god that I will always kill in order to defend. These activities are associated with Islam. Look at the case of the pupils in Bauchi; they have even developed their own blood-lust so early in their lives, because of who inspires Islam. I repeat, satan does not need to convert to Islam, he is the originator. As the Bible says: “by their fruits we shall know them”

        Hope why living in denial? Satan is not a convert but a confirmed Muslim. Satan inspired group called ISIS just beheaded a journalist doing his job just as boko haram butchered a naval officer for working for the state. Every time they commit atrocities they shout to Allah. Who is this Allah?

    NASIR EL-RUFAI HAS A SMELLY MOUTH

    This creature called El Rufai irritates people. His close friends are dishonest not to tell him his mouth smells. It doesn’t matter to anyone what party he joins or quits since he’s constantly vile at decency. I am rsther interested in accountability and will like to demand that EFCC should wake up from its corrupt sleep and bring Nasir El Rufai to account by forcing him to re-deliver the 5 billion Naira he took from under the table of Sanusi Lamido Sanusi at the Central Bank for bogus contracts. Once he’s done that he’s free to join or quit any political party he wants.

        Nigerians must be very angry. The pain of living in that country is biting. Nigerians are expressing that anger. They feel duped. They hate the icons of their national fraud. Only God can save these so-called elites in Nigeria if this anger spills to the streets. I have nothing against Dale Oyesiku since i cannot prescribe how Nigerians must not express pain at being robbed of $500 billion by criminals strutting Nigerian government offices as Presidents, Reps, Governors Senators, Special Advisers and Assistants and Ministers. For if sovereignty indeed belongs to the people it means Nigerians have the constitutional right to deal with official thieves anyhow they choose.

  • Lord Christopher Anderson

    IF I WERE THE PRESIDENT OF NIGERIA….

    If i were President of Nigeria, Nasir El-Rufai would be in jail – not sitting at home and doing punditry. Jailhouse is where accused criminals belong; not on websites. If i were the President of Nigeria, with Nasir El-Rufai’s nepotism so obvious – for allocating Abuja prime lands to his wife and children – the High Court Judge who acquitted him of abuse of office would be long gone and answering questions in a detention centre. There is no judicial immunity for intentional violation of common sense rules. But unfortunately the coalition of criminals chose Mr. Goodluck Jonathan as the sort of president they prefer and can trust to preside over the stealing of Nigeria.

    • Onike24

      Why can you people not accept that some people actually have a conscience and are not swayed by wealth. Can you prove any of the allegations against El- Rufai ? If you support a man he is not corrupt but if he opposes you then he is a thief! You would be more credible if you attacked him on his opinions, that you can factually counter not nonsense and unproven allegations! El Rufai has more that two wives, so which one did he choose to be his partner in crime allegedly?

  • Wise Head

    Islam and peace are like water and oil, they cannot go together. They are mutually exclusive; incapable of ever co-existing. They would never be able to mix. Islam thrives on violence and bloodshed. Someone once described the Koran as a “terror manual.” So, to associate Islam with peace is to defame, slander, debase and pollute the very concept of PEACE. Associating Islam with peace is a grand deception concocted by Satan to deceive the unwary

      • Wise Head

        You can say what you like, but right inside you, you know I am right. But remember, at end of all things, everyone will give account. That you support a religion that thrives on violence and bloodshed makes you culpable; so as the Bible says, do not partake in other men’s sins. Swallow your pride and run from that thing you call religion

    With Boko Haram, alqaeda, alshabab, ISIS in Syria and Iraq, Izala in Nigeria, Taliban in Afghanistan and Pakistan all fighting in the name of Islam. If Satan is not a Muslim/Islam Mr Nasir Ahmad El-Rufai, then you do not need a cult religion of war with a sword as its symbol. It is a known fact t globally that the Islam is a disgrace to humanity.

  • Mudasiru Olalere Yusuf

    @Dan Gata, can you please answer the following questions. Were those who forcefully took Africans to America Muslims? Were those who distributed cholera clothes to the Red Indians in America to kill them Muslims? Were those who started and killed millions during the first and second world war Muslims? Those who were caught disguised as Muslims trying to burn churches in Bayelsa, Giombe, Adamawa, and the pastor in Osun Muslims? People like you are committing atrocities masquerading as Muslims. You are interested in decimating the Muslim populated areas because of 2015 election and 2016 census. You profile Muslims to justify evil actions against Muslim. Allah the most powerful will make His religion and people to prevail, EVEN IF THE UNBELIEVERS DETEST IT

  • Mudasiru Olalere Yusuf

    @Dan Gata you need to be educated and tutored that there are millions of good people across all religions and equally bad across all religions. If you read all religious books you find issues across the divides. Similar thing applies to tribes, races and groups. Every human being with sane and sound mind should condemn terrorists, religious bigots, pastorpreneuers and imampreneuers, and others committing atrocities in the name of religion or Allah/God. No matter the blackmail, profiling, persecution, etc., everybody in the world will not practice a single religion. That is part of Allah’s design, and no change can be found in His design

      Can you imagine, an aspirant is already factoring religion into his supposed office. This reminds me of a question a friend had asked me in the Us that if Nigerians are that religious, why are they that corrupt? The summary of what this guy is saying is that all other religions other than Islam are satanic. Lord have mercy!
