I Have No Desire For Godfatherism, Nor Do I Interfere In Kaduna Affairs – El-rufaiFrom our Correspondent

Amid criticism of his government, the immediate past governor of Kaduna state, Mallam Nasir El-Rufai, on Monday, April 15, said he does not want to be addressed as a godfather in Kaduna, adding that he does not interfere in Kaduna politics.

Speaking at a capacity-enhancement workshop for senior government officials in Borno on Monday, El-Rufai, said he has only visited Kaduna five times since he left office almost a year ago because he wants Sani to learn the job and get it done by himself.

El-Rufai said: “I don’t want to be a godfather and that’s why I don’t interfere in what is happening in Kaduna, I want him (the governor) to learn and get the job by himself. “What we lack is good leadership, the majors aspects of good quality of leadership. The leader should get good people to get the job done. Only God can do everything by himself, no matter how good you are as a leader, you can be as effective as people around you and that’s why the saying that no country get better than the quality of his civil services.”

El-Rufai is in Borno state for a key engagement with the Borno state government led by Prof. Babagana Umara Zulum.
