- The governor of Kaduna state has revealed the kind of leader Bola Tinubu will be if he eventually emerges as Nigeria’s next president.
- The APC governor in an interview on Wednesday revealed that Tinubu will be a transitional leader employing young minds in his government.
- Urging the youth to remain calm about Tinubu’s age, he noted that the former Lagos state governor has all the experience needed to run the complex country called Nigeria.
Ahead of next month’s presidential election, Kaduna state Governor Nasir El-Rufai has said there is no government job a young man cannot do.
According to him, the various septuagenarian presidential candidates are on a trajectory of compromise leadership to give younger Nigerians the leadership they would require.

He said he would recommend a younger person to the All Progressives Congress (APC) presidential candidate if he wanted her to work with him and stressed that they are still talking about this, the Nigerian Tribune report noted.
“I don’t think there is any government job that you can’t give to a younger person. Like I said, we’re still talking. The Nigerian passport is the only passport I have. Anything that I can do to make sure our country is better, I will make sure to do. But I will always say that I prefer stocks.”
He added that Bola Tinubu would involve youth in government for a leadership transition.
“It’s hard for someone in their 40s or 50s to convince Nigeria or the political class that they have the experience to run this complex country. I view the septuagenarians running for office now as transitional leaders.”
El-Rufai noted that his exposure under various presidents has given him the insight that a younger person would require the necessary exposure to run a complex Nigeria.
