Earlier this week, Bello El-Rufai, son of Kaduna State governor, Nasir El-Rufai, took to Twitter to lash out at those who dropped comments on a tweet he posted about the President of the USA, Donald Trump.
In his replies, he made lewd and sexist comments about women, and displayed tribalistic sentiments, while his mum and the First Lady of Kaduna State, Hadiza El-Rufai, described his tweets as fair, before later tendering an apology “to those who were offended” by Bello’s comment.
After several backlashes from Nigerians, Bello El-Rufai has tendered an apology which he shared on Twitter.
Check on it!

However, Twitter users are saying the apology is far-fetched, and his reluctancy to apologise is very obvious. What do you think?
Well, here’s what Nigerians tweeted:
Bello you had better post your apology to me for libeling and slandering me as a rape victim as a “penis for hire addict” when my case was proven in court.
You are guilty not only of tribalism, but of endorsing and supporting a rapist, and misogyny against women who were raped. pic.twitter.com/B4nBO4KJIZ
