The Governor of Kaduna, Nasir el-Rufai, has said he would reject to be Minister of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) if offered the position by the incoming administration of president-elect, Bola Tinubu.
Speaking at a policy conversation and book launch in Abuja on Tuesday, El-Rufai said such was a repetition of class which he will never do.
The Kaduna State Governor had served as the FCT minister under President Olusegun Obasanjo’s administration. He played a major role in maintaining sanity in the FCT, but was instrumental to the demolition of several structures in the city.
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 said, 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.
