The Nigeria Labour Congress NLC has described Kaduna State Governor Nasir El-Rufai as Hell Rufai as the union began an industrial strike, protesting the sack of thousands of workers by the Kaduna State Government.
Recall that the union had announced that it is set to begin a five-day warning strike as a reaction to the recent mass retrenchment of workers in the state.
Governor of Kaduna State Mallam Nasir El-Rufai had earlier explained that the decision to sack trhe workers was made based on the current economic realities. The labour union, however, demand a reversal of the decision and a call back of the workers.

Stop the mass sack. Respect workers and human rights. This new name has stirred a lot of reactions on Twitter, as well as controversy among the people. See some reactions below:
