Outgoing Kaduna Governor Nasir El-Rufai has reacted to rumours of him jostling to become Chief of Staff in President-elect, Bola Tinubu’s cabinet.

He described the reports on the different portfolios being assigned to him and published in national dailies as “mere speculations”.

El-Rufai stated this in Gombe on Saturday while addressing newsmen.

El-Rufai was in the state to inaugurate the construction of 550 housing units and Gombe Geographic Information Systems (GOGIS) Service Centre.

According to him, “I have not had that discussion with the president-elect and I don’t like to speculate”.

El-Rufai noted that being in government was not the only way to contribute to Nigeria’s development, saying even if he was not in government, he would remain committed to the progress of the country.

“I read in the newspapers all kinds of portfolios assigned to me but you know, I am a committed Nigerian.

“I want to see my country make progress and whatever I can do to contribute to the development of the country, I will do it.

“But, I don’t have to do it working in government. Everyone who is working either in the private sector or civil society is contributing.

“There is not just one way to contribute to the country and I will never stop working for Nigeria’s progress,” he was quoted as saying.
