Court sacks Gov Umahi, Deputy over defection to APC The Informant247

Dave Umahi, the immediate past governor of Ebonyi State, on Saturday, said that the former governor of Kaduna State, Mallam Nasir El-Rufail will play a major role in President Bola Ahmed Tinubu’s administration.

Umahi, who stated this in an interview with Arise Television, said Tinubu can’t leave him and El-Rufai because they worked for his emergence as president.

Umahi maintained that El-Rufai will play a major role in Tinubu’s government due to his loyalty to the President, despite his recent anti-Christian comments.

The Senator-elect also stressed that the president will not distance himself from people who worked for his victory during the election.

He said, “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 said.
