The All Progressives Congress presidential candidate, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, reportedly said he will need the service of the Kaduna State Governor, Mallam Nasir El-Rufai when he eventually becomes Nigeria president in 2023

While appealing to the Governor to shelve his plan of returning to class after the completion of his tenure, he said “we need your (El-Rufai) creativity, resilience in turning a rotten situation to a bad one is a necessity at this critical time.”

The former Lagos State governor said this while speaking at the Kaduna Investment programme titled, “Building a resilient economy” held at the Arewa Hall, Kaduna, the state capital, on Saturday. He said Nigeria needed a thinker like the Kaduna State helmsman.

“As a visionary governor that you are, we are proud to be associated with what you are doing. And the future is set up for Kaduna State and the country at large.

“I am particularly begging El-Rufai not to run away for additional degrees after his tenure.

“If you leave me on this podium, I will continue to campaign here, begging El-Rufai not to run away from Nigeria in 2023 because we need your (El-Rufai) creativity, resilience in turning a rotten situation to a bad one is a necessity at this critical time.” he added.

Reacting, El-Rufai said, “I promise to stay even on a part-time basis.”

On what he would do to revive the economy, the APC presidential hopeful, stressed, “we will prioritise ease of doing business, and ensure steady power supply and distribution.”
