Governor Nasir el-Rufai of Kaduna state has stated that President Muhammadu Buhari will live in Kaduna at the end of his tenure in 2023.

El-Rufai said this on Tuesday while briefing State House Correspondents after having met with the President.

The former Minister of the Federal Capital Territory said that despite being from Daura in Katsina State, Buhari is a Kaduna-based citizen as the President spent most of his life in Kaduna.

He said, “Mr President has been invited to come and commission some of our projects. He will spend two to three days in Kaduna commissioning projects in Kafanchan, Kaduna and Zaria.

“As you know, the President is a Kaduna-based citizen. He is originally from Katsina state, but he spent most of his life in Kaduna. And he’s retiring to Kaduna.

“We hope that he will be happy with what we have done and he will be proud of what we have done as an APC government, and we appreciate all the support that he has given us to enable us to do this.”
