El-Rufai who was recently denied confirmation of his Ministerial nomination by the Senate, announced on Monday, that he is set to resume the new job.

Premium Politics reported that El-Rufai, whose name was on the ministerial nominees’ list forwarded to the National Assembly by President Tinubu for screening and confirmation as Minister in his government, was not cleared for confirmation by the Senate, which claimed that it was due to security reasons.

He added that the company hopes to finance, nurture, and mentor young innovators and entrepreneurs in Nigeria, and Africa.

I am privileged to be the part-time Chairman of the Board.

“Please pray for our success and the Nigerian (and shortly African) innovators and entrepreneurs we hope to finance, nurture, and mentor to be the Dangote Group of the future.”
