“Once again I dare @elrufai to deny he forwarded me an email calling Southern women ‘whores’ and responded by saying ‘so true!’.

“If he denies, I‘ll immediately make the email available to newsmen. El-Rufai is very notorious for challenging falsehoods. Let him deny this,” he tweeted.

Omokri’s tweet was in reaction to El-Rufai’s claim on Friday that PDP’s Vice-Presidential candidate Peter Obi is a tribal bigot.

Concise News had reported that Governor El-Rufai described Peter Obi, as a tribal bigot, stressing that voting Atiku and Obi into power will bring about division in the country.

According to him, Obi supported his (El-Rufai’s) arrest by the Department of State Services, DSS, in 2014 on the ground that “El-Rufai has no business being in Anambra State as it is not Katsina State.”
