El-Rufai Tells President Tinubu Those To Sack From His Cabinet

Former Kaduna State Governor, Nasir El-Rufai, has told President Bola Tinubu to sack all appointees in his government that are not performing up to expectations.

Speaking on Monday in Maiduguri at a capacity-building workshop for top officials of the Borno State government, El-Rufai stressed that Tinubu should relieve those who are not performing in his cabinet of their responsibilities and bring in other capable hands.

The former Governor also called on the President to adjust some of his policies that are not yielding the desired or expected results.

“You appointed a person into a position and he is not working according to the expectation, you should have the humility to tell him that I need a better person, go and do something else,” El-Rufai said.


He further urged Nigerians to pray and assist the administration in its efforts to make things better.

“What we must do as citizens is to pray for our leaders for God to guide them to see or do what is right,” he said.

“For God to give them the humility to reverse themselves when necessary and do the right thing; that’s how society progresses.”
