JUST IN: El-Rufai vows not to accept FCT minister
Governor El-Rufai has vowed not to accept the FCT Minister appointment from Tinubu Government.
MOUTHPIECE BGR reports that the Governor of Kaduna, Nasir el-Rufai, has said he would turn down the opportunity to be the Minister of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) if he is offered by the incoming administration of president-elect, Bola Tinubu.
This online newspaper understands that Governor El-Rufai stated this while speaking at a policy conversation and book launch in Abuja on Tuesday.
Recall that El-Rufai served as the FCT minister under President Olusegun Obasanjo’s administration and was notorious for pulling down illegal structures.
According to the Governor, he will never “repeat class”, adding that there are “young people” he can recommend for the job.
“Even if offered, I’m not coming to Abuja. As I say, I never repeat class and there are many young people I know that I can recommend that would do a better job than I did.
“I’m too old for this. I’m too old for demolition, get a young man with blood in his veins or a young woman,” El-Rufai said.
