Following the rejection by the Senate to confirm his ministerial position, former Kaduna State governor, Mallam El-Rufai has run to President Bola Ahmed Tinubu for his intervention.



The president met with former Governors of Kaduna State, Malam Nasir El-Rufai and Rivers State, Nyesom Wike, at the Aso Rock Presidential Villa, Abuja.

Wike was screened and confirmed by the Senate, while El-Rufai is yet to be cleared over an alleged security report.

The duo came separately to the State House.

While Wike came around 1:40 pm, El-Rufai entered the presidential wing of Aso Rock around 2pm.

Sources at the Presidential Villa hinted that efforts are being made to ensure that the Senate confirms Malam El-Rufai.
