Why I don’t want to be a godfather – El-Rufai

Why I don’t want to be a godfather – El-Rufai

Mallam Nasir El-Rufai, the immediate former governor of Kaduna State, has stated that he is not interested in serving as godfather to any governor in the state.

On Monday, he announced this during a Capacity Enhancement Workshop for Senior Government Officials in Borno State.

El-Rufai says he had only been to Kaduna five times since leaving government about a year ago.

“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 major aspect 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 gets better than the quality of his civil services,” he said.
