He wrote on his Instagram page: "It's a great pleasure watching my friend and brother Governor @nelrufai (Nasir Ahmad Elrufai) talk to us about his vision for making "Kaduna Great Again".

Continuing, he wrote: "I was a bit worried about that vision because it reminds me of Donald Trump's "Making America Great Again" Everything I know about Nasir Elrufai tells me he's not exactly a Donald Trump double. I've always talked about my friendship with Elrufai, we've been friends since we were teenagers and as I said during the lunch of his book people keep asking me.

"How comes you're always friends with this El-rufai? And I say; I need him because he is the only in the public that makes me look like a moderate. Usually people go to my friends and say, including the Sultan they go to him and say; Look! Talk to the Emir of Kano, just talk to your friend he is too radical.

"But what I find is that people come to me and say; Please talk to your friend Nasir. As long as I continue to have that, I'm comfortable I'm not the most extreme and more radical public officer, so I've to keep close to Governor Nasir Ahmad Elrufai," he wrote.
