Governor Nasir El-Rufai of Kaduna State and Abdullahi Ganduje of Kano State are the top candidates for the position of Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF) in the next administration.
The names of the two-term governors elected on the platform of the All Progressives Congress (APC) have been submitted to President-elect Bola Tinubu, a source told Vanguard. The source stated that the selection of El-Rufai as SGF is being assessed against that of Ganduje, a close supporter of the incoming president.
It is believed that the positions of SGF, Senate Presidency, and Speakership will be discussed during Monday's closed-door meeting at the State House in Abuja between the APC leadership and the party's National Assembly members-elect. It was learned that the allocation of roles will be thoroughly reviewed at the meeting in order to secure everyone's commitment to establish a united front before to the June inauguration of the tenth National Assembly.
Meanwhile, Femi Gbajabiamila, the speaker of the House of Representatives, is rumoured to be Tinubu's Chief of Staff (CoS). According to reports, the sixth-term lawmaker is set to leave the 10th assembly for the top position in Tinubu's cabinet.
