The Governor of Kaduna State, Nasir El-Rufai, has said that the next President of Nigeria in 2023, should not be more than 65 years old, .
Governor El-Rufai said this on Thursday, during a Webinar organised by the Africa Leadership Group.
The event which was tagged: ‘Developing a Viable Nation 2’, was hosted by the Pastor of Trinity House Church, Ituah Ighodalo.
Governor El-Rufai said that it is his wish that the next President of Nigeria will not be more than 65 years, adding that, “Political leadership is mentally and physically draining, and a younger person would handle the stress better than an older person. Hence the next President of Nigeria should not be more than 65 years”.
He also stated that President Muhammadu Buhari hardly achieved much, because he is a nice guy that does not like to sack.
He maintained that he (Governor El-Rufai) believes in sacking incompetent hands, and that is why he has achieved more.
He added: “I fire people, so I get higher execution rates. President Buhari is a nice guy, he does not fire people, so he has a slower execution rate.”
