Drama as Tinubu forces El-Rufai to promise he won’t run away after his tenure as gov

There was a mild drama at the venue of KadInvest 7.0 as the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) for the 2023 elections, Bola Tinubu on Saturday forced Kaduna State Governor Nasir El-Rufai to make a promise he wont to run away from Nigeria after his tenure elapses in 2013.

Newscrescent reports that Tinubu, who was ushered to the podium by Governor El-Rufai, in his remarks, during the annual event organised by the Kaduna State Investment Promotion Agency, insisted that he won’t leave the podium except the Kaduna State Governor promised not to run away.

“Make a promise, we won’t let you run away from the country. That is the only way I will leave this podium,” the former Lagos State Governor insisted, with El-Rufai saying, “I promise, even on a part basis” as he was ushered to join Tinubu in the podium by dignitaries present at the event.

In his remarks, Tinubu disclosed that Nigeria needs thinkers and doers. He stressed that Nigeria needs summits such as the one put together by the Kaduna State Investment Promotion Agency, promising that as soon as 2023 is done, “we are still going to have summits to make governance easy, for thinking and doing” while expressing confidence that he will win the 2023 presidential election.

“And that is why I am openly begging Nasir El-Rufai not to run away for additional degree. Excuse. Going to Cairo, PhD and everything. There are a lot of educated relics. We are not going to let you run away. Your vision, creativity and resiliency in turning a rotten situation into a bad one are necessary at this critical time,” he said.

Speaking further, Tinubu said: “I will marshall a team of most talented Nigerians, men and women. They are the path to achieving double-digit economic growth. We will do this through a coordinated set of policies in our key sectors.

“We will champion an efficient government that will eliminate revenue leakages across all federal government areas, leveraging technology, which will be increasingly embedded into government operations”.
