There are some unidentified people who want to use Tinubu and “crush him" — CBN former deputy gov



Obadiah Mailafia, a former deputy governor of Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), says there are some unidentified people who want to use Bola Tinubu, a former governor of Lagos state, and “crush him.”

In an interview with PUNCH, Mailafia said though, Tinubu could discern talents and mentor them to leadership roles, he has been “abjectly naive.”

The former deputy governor of CBN said this when he was asked to comment on a statement credited to Nasir el-Rufai, governor of Kaduna state, on zoning arrangements for the office of president.

Mailafia described the governor of Kaduna as “a man of ambition who is susceptible to grand self delusions of the order of Bonaparte.”

“The 1999 constitution does not require ‘zoning’ as such. However, I believe that evolving constitutional conventions and norms lead us ineluctably in that direction,” he said.

“Governor Nasir el-Rufai is evidently a man of ambition, and often susceptible to grand self delusions of the order of Bonaparte. Obasanjo in his memoirs describes him (el-Rufai) as someone who is loyal only to himself.
