The former president who was a special guest at the extraordinary session of the Kaduna State Executive Council which was chaired by Governor El-Rufai, commended the state governor for putting together a pan-Nigerian cabinet with inter-ethnic inclusion.
“We need a character like this, a man that you know where you stand with him. Any job given to him will be well done.”

“I made women to matter in my government. He has done the same in Kaduna. He is a very good learner.”
