Nasir el-Rufai, former governor of Kaduna, has taken to
social media to share a cryptic message a few weeks after the senate refused to
confirm him as a minister.
El-Rufai’s name was among the 48 ministerial nominees
forwarded by President Bola Tinubu to the upper legislative chamber for
screening and confirmation.
However, during the screening on August 7, the former Kaduna
state governor and two other nominees were not confirmed by the senate.
The senate said there were “adverse” security reports
against el-Rufai, and he is required to await clearance.
The development generated reactions within and outside the
ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).
Although there were reports that el-Rufai had opted to bow
out of the race due to the delay, the former Kaduna governor has remained
silent on the issue.
But in a post on X — formerly 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!”
VIDEO – Bob Marley of blessed memory is one of most talented musicians of all time. My love for reggae music is connected with his songs and music.
Who The Cap Fit – Bob Marley & The Wailers is one of my favorites from the 1970s. Enjoy your Sunday with the song and lyrics that…

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”.
I have turned him into a Rastafarian and Reggae artist…yeah man.

El-Rufai and Sani were former allies but their relationship
went sour over the past few years.
