Bashir El-Rufai, son of Kaduna state governor, Nasir El-Rufai, had posted a photo on Twitter last Sunday, to celebrate Enugu state governor, Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi, for respecting President Buhari despite their different political and ethnic class. In his tweet, Bashir referred to Enugu state as the Home of the Great Ojukwu.
A Twitter user who is from the South East corrected him, howbeit disrespectfully, that Enugu state is not the home of Ojukwu. Bashir found his comment disrespectful and the war of words ensued to the point that Bashir described the late Biafran leader, Odumegwu Ojukwu as a failed hero.
