El-Rufai not anti-Christian, doesn’t care about opinions – Son, Bello

A member, representing Kaduna North Federal Constituency at the House of Representatives, Bello El-Rufai, has dismissed claims that former Kaduna State Governor, Nasir El-Rufai was anti-Christian.

Bello said the closest person to El-Rufai was a Christian from Cross Rivers State, Peter Jones.

He recalled that El-Rufai demolished both mosques and churches when he was the Minister of the Federal Capital Territory, FCT.

Speaking with Seun Okinbaloye in a podcast, Bello said: “My father is a very simple person who’s been stereotyped a lot. I got a video of him where people say this or that about him without even knowing him.

“My father does not go out of his way to change what people think about him. He doesn’t really care.

“There’s a perception that he’s anti-Christian. But, the closest person to him since we (children) were four years old was a man from Cross River State, Peter Jones.

“Religion is personal to us. As minister of the Federal Capital Territory, he demolished mosques. The imam said he hated Islam.

“He demolished churches and the Christians said he hated Christians. Maybe, it is the wrong imams and pastors who have issues, not him.”
