Last week Friday, I had the great honour of being featured in Malam Nasir El-Rufai’s Friday column, as the 5th Young Voice, from his fortnightly YOUNG VOICES in which he introduces a young Nigerian passionate about positive change.
As you are probably well aware, Malam El-Rufai, currently a chieftain of the party, Congress for Progressive Change (CPC) has served the Nigerian Federal Government in various high-level capacities, notably as the Director-General of the Bureau for Public Enterprises, as Minister of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) and as member of the Federal Executive Council, the highest decision making body in Nigeria, from 2003 – 2007.
He is well known for his thought-provoking, brilliant, enlightening and cerebral articles in his weekly columns with various Nigerian newspapers and online platforms and for his advocacy for good governance. In August 2012, Malam El-Rufai was listed as one of the 50 most influential Africans by the influential Paris-based The Africa Report magazine.
Importantly, unlike many of our African “big-men” and their larger-than-life unapproachable personas, Malam El-Rufai is very accessible to young Nigerians via email, twitter and other social media platforms.
It is really a great honour to be featured as one of the YOUNG VOICES. Read more on Malam El-Rufai’s webpage HERE.
