When I look at leaders like el-Rufai who believe public office should be used to oppress critics, all I can do is laugh. They have forgotten how they suffered when they were out of office after OBJ.
Nothing last forever. Not public office or even life itself. #FreeStevenKefas

Never have i been a fan of El Rufai. But in a battle between him and the Lagos Drug baron. I will tilt towards Murus.
