El-Rufai further stated that the principle of rotational presidency is fair; considering the agreement between both major political parties.

“In Kaduna, I don’t work with people because they came from a particular zone; rather, I work with you based on your capacity to deliver on a task given to you; and your ability to keep public trust,” he said.

On speculations that he was aspiring for the presidency position, El-Rufai said, “It is a baseless speculation. I don’t want to be president; only God decides someone’s future whether you like it or not, I have never shown interest for the presidency.”
