Kaduna State Governor, Nasir El-Rufai has distanced himself from running for the 2023 presidency, saying the job of a president is arduous for a 62-year-old person.
El-Rufai made the comment when responding to a question on if he has plans to become president in 2023.
The governor said that his job as a governor of a single state is telling on him, talk more of that of the president of Nigeria.
He expressed that the stress of being a governor caused his hair to turn gray in six years.
“Look at my grey hair. If you see my picture when I was sworn in, my hair was very black but look at how it has become. This is a very difficult job and that is just state governor — one state out of 36,” he said.
“A big one, yes; a difficult one, yes, but it is not the same as Nigeria. Presidency of Nigeria is a very serious job, it is too much for a 62-year-old.
Asked if he is interested in the office of the vice-president, he said:
“I have not thought about it at all. I have said it that in the political system we have, after eight years of President Buhari, the presidency should go to the south”.
