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.

 

El-Rufai stated 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”.
