Ministerial Appointment: VON DG Okechukwu Makes Case For El-Rufai

The Director-General of the Voice of Nigeria (VON), Mr. Osita Okechukwu, has made a passionate plea to President Bola Tinubu, pleading with him not to remove former Governor Nasir El-Rufai from his cabinet.

This was said in a statement that was released on Sunday in Abuja by Okechukwu, who is also a founding member of the All Progressives Congress (APC). He stated that there had been some debate on the nomination of the man who had previously served as governor of Kaduna State.

Okechuku stated that this was especially the case when the Senate put a hold on his confirmation as a minister as a result of an alleged security report.

According to the Director General of the VON, El-Rufai made the decision to turn down the ministerial seat because he believes his anticipated high-quality contributions to the country in his role as Minister of Power should be taken into consideration.

He made an appeal to Tinubu, pleading with him to stop his expulsion of El-Rufai from the Federal Executive Council since it was a matter of urgent national importance.

when harping on the ideas that El-Rufai would bring to the table toward reforming the nation's power sector, Okechukwu said that his expulsion from the system will sadly lead to the expulsion of more Nigerians from the National Electricity Grid. This was expressed when Okechukwu was harping on the ideas that El-Rufai would place on the table toward revamping the nation's power sector.

"A lot of rich Nigerians are already ejected from public electricity supply chain following epileptic power supply," and "many poor Nigerians are ejected from public electricity supply chain by high tariffs."To solve this problem, we need an original thinker like El-Rufai. I am neither a supporter of Malam Nasir El-Rufai, nor am I arguing that he is essential to the success of this organization.

"However, as Mr. project, he is equipped more than some of us to not only reform our electrical chain, but also to sanitize the polluting energy industry.

"Nigeria will not develop until we fix our electricity supply chain because small, medium, and larger scale industries could not thrive successfully under less than 4,000 megawatts," he added. "This is why Nigeria will not develop until we fix our electricity supply chain."
Okechukwu added: "Tinubu should not eject El-Rufai because of his minuses, for his plus track records in BPE, the Federal Capital Territory, (FCT), and Kaduna State confirmed his exceptional competence and capacity to overhaul our electricity chain." Okechukwu was referring to Tinubu's decision to eject El-Rufai because of his negatives.
