Xenophobia: El-Rufai, Fayemi, Sanusi draw Outrage for Attending Event in South Africa

Nigerians on social media have come for Kaduna and Ekiti State Governors Mallam Nasir El Rufai and Kayode Fayemi respectively for attending an event in South Africa.

The Governors and the Emir of Kano Mohammed Sanusi were seen in viral photos attending an event in Stellenbosch, some 50km away from Cape Town in South Africa where the World Economic Forum (WEF) on Africa is presently holding.

Hours earlier, the media team of President Muhammadu Buhari had called out former Minister of Education, Oby Ezekwesili for attending the WEF despite the Nigerian government’s withdrawal from the event.

But all hell broke loose online when the Kano Emirates Council tweeted photos of the Emir and the Governors at the event.

This sparked fresh outrage among Nigerians, who lambasted the two governors and also slammed Bashir Ahmad, Buhari’s social media aide, for singling out Ezekwesili for attack over her visit to South Africa.
