'Boycott The Platform' Trends To Protest El-Rufai's Inclusion by naptu2: 2:30pm On Apr 29
The Platform is a popular discussion series that is hosted by the Covenant Christian Center. It is usually held during public holidays such as Independence Day and May Day. The next event is scheduled to hold on May 1st, 2021, but it has been hit by protests online as some people object to the inclusion of the governor of Kaduna State, Mallam Nasir El-Rufai in a panel to discuss devolution of powers in Nigeria.

The protesters allege that Governor El-Rufai is a bigot and ethnic jingoist and they are calling on people to boycott the event.

In August 2020 the Nigerian Bar Association (NBA) withdrew an invitation that it had extended to Governor El-Rufai to speak at it's annual conference after people called for a boycott of the conference.

That's a Good one. Do not use the platform to advance or celebrate evil. Elrufai is pretender extraordinaire, religious bigot and terrorist sympathizer. I recommend someone in the mode of the Governor of Boronu state or the Kogi state governor.

If you must invite elrufai, then you should as well send an invite to Isa Pantami so as to have partners on board.

Both religions are shiit!!!

One filled with illiterates, gullible and ediotic fanatics, the other filled with morally bankrupted hypocrites who can throw their religious beliefs in the mud for money and political recognition.

What is Osita doing there ?

Him n Elrufia should never be enlisted as guest or keynote speaker on anything Nigeria. They are both irredeemable bigot that should only talk within their sect/tribe.

Instead of El Rufai, it should be Nyesom Wike . Wike's invitation to the platform should be withdrawn. He is an ethnic Jingoist worse than El Rufai,and a murderer of the Igbo race in Rivers state

For a balance, they'll have no choice but to include a Muslim Northerner.

All these hues and cries won't cut it.

We need to stop being excessively/obsessively emotional if we are truly intent on finding a solution to our many problems as a nation.

Let's get on the table, get honest and frank with ourselves in a no-holds-barred discussion to find a way forward in salvaging whatever is left of Nigeria, if possible.

The country is on a DELETE mode...

It is a bad thing for good to be silent when evil prevails. But it is a very dangerous thing for good to provide the platform for evil to be celebrated.

A man that speaks from both sides of his mouth?
He would not negotiate with kidnappers to release victims, but was loud in condemning Jonathan for not negotiating with insurgents.

The south especially the west should stop this their overzealous over sabi political correctness



After putting up a wonderful show on the platform with his tagiya, El-rufai will still not fail to kill Southern Kaduna Christians or use every available opportunity to spit Christianity.

El-rufai should never be an option.

Pastor Poju should stop hobnobbing with those that despise Christ and Christianity both in words and actions.

Boycott the platform.
