"I’m not going to play any chief of staff role to Bola Tinubu" - El-Rufai reveals

Nasir el-Rufai, the Kaduna State Governor, has disclosed the reason why he would not accept Bola Tinubu’s offer to serve as his chief of staff.

According to El-Rufai, he chooses to be involved in the private sector.

In the statement he made during the commissioning of the Gombe Geographic Information Systems service center, in Gombe State on Saturday, May 6, he said;

“I will be leaving in 22 days, but I will be available anytime you need a troublemaker. I will be in the private sector, I’m not going to be any chief of staff. I will take a break and advice people like Governor Inuwa Yahaya if they need it.”

When asked by journalists why he would decline the “compensation” to serve irrespective of his support to Tinubu, el-Rufai added,

“I have not had the discussion with the president-elect and I don’t want to speculate. I read on the pages of newspapers and I see all kinds of portfolios assigned to me.

“I’m a committed Nigerian and I want to see my country make progress and whatever I can do to contribute to the development I will, but I don’t have to do it working in the government. People working in the private sector or civil society are contributing their own one way or the other, to the growth and development of our country. I will never stop working for Nigeria’s progress.”
