The immediate-past governor of Ebonyi State, Dave Umahi, has said that President Bola Tinubu will not leave him and the former governor of Kaduna state, Nasir El-Rufai out of his government because of their role in his emergence as president.
He stressed that due to his loyalty, El-Rufai will play a major role in Tinubu’s government despite his recent anti-Christian comments.
The Senator-elect stressed that the president will not distance himself from people who worked for his victory during the election.
“So be assured that Mr President is not going to leave out people like El-Rufai and the rest of us who worked very hard for him.
“You can see his track records. He doesn’t betray anybody. So be very much assured that my good friend El-Rufai is going to play a major role.
“I’m not speaking for Mr President, but I’m speaking bearing in mind the character of him I know too well,” he spoke with Arise Television in Abuja.
