How social media followers of El-Rufai and wife Hadiza misinterpreted their sarcastic tweets

Mrs Hadiza Isma El-Rufai recently made a tweet and a response by her husband, Kaduna State Governor Nasir el-Rufai, have become a learning curve for their social media followers and some bloggers.

The trouble started when the wife of Kaduna State governor, Hadiza tweeted about her experience at the John F. Kennedy International Airport in New York. Some of her followers and bloggers took what was supposed to be sarcasm way too seriously.

Many people who came across the tweets of the wife to the governor of the Kaduna State,  totally misinterpreted Mrs Hadiza’s tweet as a complaint and her husband’s response as a counsel for her not to be carried away with the temporary privilege of public office.

A handful of her social media followers, however, got the drift and had fun twisting and making the rounds about it, while some other people misinterpreted the whole thing.

Anyone who has been following the wife of the governor of Kaduna States official Twitter handle called @hadizel, would at least attest to the fact that she indeed has a great sense of humour, which many people mistook for something malicious in the contentious tweet.

She has however corrected the misinterpreted tweet and explained to her followers and bloggers what she meant when she wrote the first tweet. She meant no complaint towards the airport or regulatory body and she is quite aware of what normal individuals in this country have to go through on a daily basis.
