Osita Okechukwu, a founding member of the All Progressives Congress and the director general of Voice of Nigeria, has pleaded with President Bola Tinubu not to disqualify Mallam Nasir El-Rufai, a former governor of Kaduna State, from a cabinet appointment.
El-Rufai had been proposed by Tinubu for a cabinet position, but the Senate declined to confirm it, ostensibly due to a security report.
On Sunday, Okechukwu said El-Rufai would be a tremendous asset to Tinubu’s administration, particularly in the power sector.
He said, “The extraordinary El-Rufai tonic was lost by Buhari, and one will not like our dear nation nor President Tinubu to miss this rare gem. Additionally, our great party, the APC, will benefit immensely from many performing ministers as we approach the 2027 general elections.
Don’t dump El-Rufai, VON DG pleads with Tinubu.
“His ejection from the system will regrettably lead to the ejection of more Nigerians from the national electricity grid. Many wealthy Nigerians are already ejected from our public electricity supply chain by the epileptic power supply, and many poor Nigerians by high tariffs. We need a unique one like El-Rufai to fix it.
“I am neither a cheerleader of Mallam Nasir El-Rufai nor am I saying that he is indispensable; however, as Mr Project, he is equipped more than some of us to not only transform our electricity chain but sanitise the toxic energy industry.”
