Former governor of Lagos State and leader of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu has eulogised Governor Nasir El Rufai of Kaduna state for what he said were the great things he was doing for Kaduna state, and joked that El Rufai was no longer, “an accidental public servant”
El Rufai has written an account of his experience in public office in a controversial memoir, titled, “The Accidental Civil Servant”.
Vanguard reports that Asiwaju made the observation Wednesday in Kaduna while flagging-off the first phase of 200 brand new Peugeot and KIA vehicles for the new Kaduna Cabs Scheme, KADCABS.
He said: “Kaduna suddenly is blessed with a performer, a trailblazer and a committed governor.
“This time he is no longer the accidental civil servant, but determined and well groomed Governor whose experience, knowledge and deep understanding of good governance which he has brought to bear in governing Kaduna people.
“I am greatly honoured to be part of this empowerment scheme for the people by the government. This is proactive effort geared at job creation.
“The Kaduna Cab Scheme is a long overdue initiative. And now that a people oriented government in charge, we are beginning to see not just bold ideas, but equally bold moves.
“I have been made to understand that the Kaduna Green Cabs Programme is an initiative to revive taxi services in the state, using modern cars and well-trained owner-drivers. It will also create a new generation of owner-drivers.
