Charly Boy, the activist, has taken a swipe at Nasir el-Rufai, governor of Kaduna, for mocking a proposed rally by supporters of Peter Obi in the state.
Obi is the presidential candidate of the Labour Party (LP) ahead of the 2023 election.
His supporters in Kaduna had earlier announced plans to hold a two-million-man march for him in the state.
But el-Rufai had in a tweet taunted the move. In the now-viral post, he had claimed Obi’s supporters can only get the projected turnout by “importing” people to the state.
His tweet has continued to elicit a wave of backlashes on social media, with a segment of users faulting his action.
Joining the fray, the activist, whose real name is Charles Oputa, called the governor a “clown”.
The musician and actor argued that el-Rufai has no justification to mock Obi’s supporters, citing the challenges confronting the state.
“Can you just imagine dis (this) clannish clown, El Rufai, wey dey owe workers salary. Kaduna is now the leading state in terrorism,” he wrote on Twitter.
The only tin wey dey worry dis clown na the one million March pass by Peter Obi supporters.

“The once upon a time very peaceful state is now a bandit paradise. Many of the victims of the Kaduna train attack dem still hold hostage.
“The only tin (thing) wey dey worry dis (this) clown na the one million march pass by Peter Obi supporters. Nonsense.”
