Nasir El-Rufai, the former governor of Kaduna state, has advised President Bola Tinubu to drop any of his appointees who failed to deliver on his mandate.

Mr El-Rufai said this when he spoke with journalists in Maiduguri on Monday, urging the president to also explore the possibility of amending some of his policies that were not yielding the desired results.

“You appointed a person into a position, and he is not working according to the expectations. You should have the humility to tell him that I need a better person, go and do something else,” he said.

Mr El-Rufai called for prayers and support from the citizens for the administration in its quest to turn around things.

“What we must do as citizens is pray for our leaders, asking God to guide them to see or do what is right.

“For God to give them the humility to reverse themselves when necessary and do the right thing; that’s how society progresses,” he said.
