Tinubu, Akpabio, others to unveil book on El-Rufai’s eight years in Kaduna



The President-elect, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, Chairman of Dangote Group, Alhaji Aliko Dangote, Senator Godswill Akpabio, as well as the former Emir of Kano, Muhammad Sanusi, are billed to unveil a book on Kaduna State Governor, Nasir El-Rufai, on Saturday.

The book titled: ‘Putting The People First: The El-Rufai Years’, written by a veteran journalist, Emmanuel Ado, is a 412-page collection of articles on the eight years of the El-Rufai administration as Governor of Kaduna State.

While addressing newsmen in Kaduna on Monday, Co-Chairman, Public Presentation Organizing Committee, Tony Maude, said the book as forwarded by the Deputy Senate President, Ovie Omo-Agege, “provides perspectives on a wide range of issues: agenda setting, policy statements, budget, Internally Generated Revenue, Local Government and Public Service reforms and the perennial security challenges confronting the State including the nagging Southern Kaduna question.”

According to Maude, “Putting The People First: The EI-Rufai Years’, is a collection of articles on the 8 years of the El-Rufai administration as Governor of Kaduna State by Emmanuel Ado. Emmanuel Ado is a senior journalist and media consultant with very wide experience and has been a resident of Kaduna for over 50 years.

“Putting The People First: The El-Rufai Years, according to Obarisi Ovie Omo-Agege, the Deputy Senate President, in his Forward to the book ‘provides perspectives on a wide range of issues: agenda setting, policy statements, budget, Internally Generated Revenue [IGR], Local Government and Public Service reforms, the perennial security challenges confronting the State and the nagging Southern Kaduna question, amid the regime of conspiracy theories as well as the COVID-19 pandemic and how El-Rufai stood out amongst his peers in managing what would have been a debacle’.

“Furthermore, he said the book is of ‘immense contribution to governance and political leadership in Nigeria’ and that it documented ‘political stewardship, and the trope of governance’ which has been lacking in Nigeria.

“The book is a rich resource material on El-Rufai’s years’ governance of Kaduna State and a must-read for politicians, administrators, political scientists, researchers, students, and the general public.”

He added that “His Excellency, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, President-Elect, Federal Republic of Nigeria will grace the occasion as the Special Guest of Honour, Sen. Uba Sani, Governor-Elect, Kaduna State will serve as Chief Presenter, HRH, Khalifa Muhammad Sanusi II, 14th Emir of Kano as Chairman and HRH, Amb.
