Confused 'Christian' Group Threatens el-Rufai

By The Paradigm
Operatives of an unknown Christian group has threatened to "reciprocate in equal measure" the anti-Christ comments allegedly made by a former Minister FCT, Mallam Nasir el-Rufai.

The group which called itself Christian Youth Vanguard was said to have been hurriedly put together towards 2015 in a bid to 'put el-Rufai in order' a source told The Paradigm.

The group which claims to be a coalition of various Christian youth organisations, on Wednesday in Abuja said they would beam their searchlight on Prophet Mohammed and the Sultan of Sokoto and President-General of the Nigerian Supreme Council for Islamic Affairs, Alhaji Muhammad Sa'ad Abubakar 111.

Investigations by The Paradigm reveals that the youth do not know or cannot recall what 'blasphemous' comment el-Rufai made against Jesus Christ. The group in a statement casually refers to "blasphemous and abominable tweets about our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ" but can't state in specific, what comment was made.

A Nigerian micro-blogger Ogunyemi Bukola has tweeted:
"If Jesus criticizes Jonathan's govt, Maku/Abati/Okupe will say he slept with Mary Madgalene."

This tweet was a direct response to the Goodluck Jonathan led government's reaction to a lecture delivered by former World Bank Vice President (Africa) Oby Ezekwesili where she highlighted the extent of waste and corruption under the administration.

The government in reacting called her out and was just short of calling her a thief. This reaction is nothing new as it is the modus operandi of a system that obsessively refuses to take corrections to better itself.

Mallam Nasir el-Rufai retweeted the tweet by Ogunyemi Bukola and it has since turned a propagada tool.

Also, the former FCT minister had recently made comments describing the Christian Association of Nigeria and its President, Pastor Ayo Oritsejafor, has appendages of the Peoples Democratic Party.

The CYV in a statement by its National Coordinator, Yakubu Mecham; and Secretary, Emeka Okoli said from el-Rufai's uncomplimentary remarks against CAN , Oritsejafor and the Christian faith in Nigeria,  someone needed "to help the ex-minister before he goes completely mental."

The NYV recalled how el-Rufai recently "made blasphemous and abominable tweets about our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ" but that the incident was swept under the carpet for peace sake.

The group wondered what would have been the consequence if such a blasphemous remark was made about Prophet Mohammed.

It warned, "Enough of this insults on our Christian faith and our CAN President. The CYV hereby notify el-Rufai and his group of unpatriotic Nigerians that we will not sit back and tolerate insults aimed at our Christian leader any longer.

"We wish to stress very emphatically that henceforth any further careless statements, comments or insults on our Faith or on the person of our CAN President will be reciprocated in equal measure. A word, they say, is enough for the wise."
