Some Nigerians on the platform had attacked her on Thursday, for celebrating 80,000 followers and ignoring the recent killing in the Christian-dominated community in the state.
At least eight persons were said to have been killed in another suspected Fulani attack on Monday.
Reacting to the users who criticised her, El-rufai said she is not the First Lady of the state.
She added that her timeline is for humour, language and not serious matters like governance.

She wrote: “Did any of you see ‘First Lady’in my bio?
“My TL is for language, humour and other light-hearted issues. I don’t tweet about serious matters like governance and politics. Though I’m married to a governor I’m not a part of government. I swore no oath.”
However, some users said though she may not carry the title, she is enjoying the privileges.

“Though I’m married to a governor, I’m not a part of government. I swore no oath. But you are enjoying the First Lady privileges,” replied @yettyclassy.
Another user, @Fyneface said: “You are a public figure, the First Lady of Kaduna State enjoying the benefits of that position and you are confidently saying you’ll turn a blind eye to the mass killings in your state. When it is time for elections, you will follow and campaign.”

@MrFeral_ said: “El-Rufai has presidential ambition right?? That latest tweet from his wife is enough to dent the ambition in a civilized society. Saying you didn’t swear an oath and there is no First Lady in your bio is such a bold and uncouth way to absolve yourself of responsibilities.”
