ZONING: el-Rufai is being selfish - CNG

President Muhammad Buhari was on Saturday threatened not to attempt reappointing some ministers that worked with him in his first term.

The threat is coming from the son of Kaduna State Governor, Bello El-rufai, who said he will not hesitate to protest if the president reappoints some former ministers.

El-rufai, who spoke via his twitter handle, was expressing concerns over the recent appointments made by President Buhari.

He said if Buhari re-appoints same set of ministers, he would lose the trust of Nigerians.

He tweeted: “We trust you, Mr. President. It has nothing to do with partisanship. It has nothing to do with your cult following that only fools deny. But recent appointments aside, if some Ministers return, well, that trust will become very unsteady. We are not PDP, you will hear us!”
