Ben Murray Bruce, senator representing Bayelsa east, has challenged Nasir el-Rufai, governor of Kaduna state, to a public debate.

The lawmaker did this in response to the governor’s salvo.

El-Rufai had dismissed the statement of Bruce that ex-President Goodluck Jonathan should be given credit for the progress in the rail sector.

Buhari inaugurated new rail vehicles for the Kaduna–Abuja train service at Rigasa train station in Kaduna on Thursday.

He later took a train ride from Rigasa to Kakuri on the outskirts of Kaduna to inaugurate Nigeria’s first Inland Dry Port in Kaduna.

Reacting via Twitter, his main medium for communication on social media, Bruce asked Buhari to thank Jonathan for the train ride.

But el-Rufai, who sat next to Buhari during the ride, would have none of that, so he took to Twitter to hit back at Bruce.

The governor said Bruce was wrong to have credited former President Olusegun Obasanjo’s achievement to Jonathan.

Bruce would not allow el-Rufai have the last word, so he challenged him to a debate.
