Tinubu’s cabinet: I’m not lobbying to become Chief of Staff — el-Rufai

Governor Nasir El-Rufai of Kaduna State has dismissed rumours that he is vying to become the Chief of Staff in the cabinet of President-elect, Senator Bola Tinubu. El-Rufai made this clear in Gombe on Saturday while addressing journalists.

According to reports, El-Rufai was in the state to inaugurate the construction of 550 housing units and Gombe Geographic Information Systems (GOGIS) Service Centre. He described the reports on the various portfolios assigned to him and published in national dailies as mere speculations.

The governor emphasized that he is more interested in contributing to the development of Nigeria than competing for positions. El-Rufai stated that being in government is not the only way to contribute to the country’s development. Even if he were not in government, he would remain committed to the progress of the country.

El-Rufai stated that he has not had discussions with the President-elect regarding any appointment and does not engage in speculation. Despite what the newspapers have reported about him, he is a committed Nigerian who wants to see his country progress, and he will do what he can to contribute to the country’s development.

The Governor explained that there are several ways to contribute to Nigeria’s growth and development, and he will not stop working for the country’s progress. When he leaves office in the next 22 days, he will take a break but will be available to provide advice where necessary on how to move the country forward.

El-Rufai made it clear that he will be in the private sector and not occupy the position of Chief of Staff. He intends to advise people like Governor Inuwa Yahaya if they require his guidance. Finally, El-Rufai expressed confidence that Nigerians would not regret voting for President-elect Tinubu and that better days were ahead for Nigerians under his leadership.
