She further explained that inviting El-Rufai to the platform is like insulting the collective intelligence of Nigerians. Dear

@pastorpoju we are annoyed and disgusted! We are insulted, that you would bring an ethnic jingoist into such a prestigious gathering. Especially one who has slandered the Christian faith. We will have NOTHING to do with you till the evil man is gone. #BoycottThePlatform
El-Rufai is regarded as the master of foul languages who has made many statements that threatens the peace of Nigerians, especially Christians. Most Nigerians consider him unfit to stand on the podium where Christians are gathered and other meaningful Nigerians are gathered to speak.
As his call for his removal as one of the guest speakers for the prestigious platform heightens, Nigerians wait to see if Pastor Poju Oyemade would bow to pressure or turn the other eye.
