He also noted that el-Rufai’s entry into public service was truly accidental, ”but the contributions he has made are deliberate, well thought out and long-lasting.

According to the President, it also highlighted his diligent contributions to the 2015 political process that heralded take-over of power by the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC)”.
