Nasir El-Rufai has come out to say that he wants to raise lots of detribalized, intellectually curious, and patriotic Nigerians during his time as governor.

This is coming after the governor revealed the 3rd set of young Nigerians for the Sir Kashim Ibrahim Fellowship (KIF).

According to him, this will definitely help to contribute to public leadership across Nigeria and he wants to be a part of that.

He added that the state government values young people and he’ll keep giving them responsibilities to deliver progressive outcomes for the people.

His words, “The second set of fellows resumed in August 2019 and have lived up to the hopes that inspired the fellowship.

“A significant chunk of their program time has unfortunately fallen within the uncertainties created by Covid-19. But they have adopted magnificently.”
