Former Minister of Federal Capital Territory (FCT), Mallam Nasir El-Rufai, has challenged critics of his recent book publication, 'The Accidental Public Servant' to write another book to counter the revelations he made in the book that has generated heated debates among top government functionaries.
El-Rufai, who spoke yesterday during the public presentation of the book at Sheraton Hotels and Tower, Lagos, Tuesday said though he was aware that many people were not happy with the content of the book, there was therefore, no way "they will not contravene its content because it is true."
While reiterating the expression of the host of the event, Pastor Tunde Bakare, who said: "There are some people in Nigeria that have attained greatness from the ruins of Nigeria," El-Rufai described the level of corruption among public officers as "the tragedy of a nation."
He said the core content of the book was that "leaders are not God" and that as such they can make mistakes.
He said the book was a version of his personal; story and that it is not complete. He assured Nigerians that he was still working on another book that will be more comprehensive and which would contain five chapters dropped in the current edition.
Earlier, Bakare, the Pastor, Latter Rain Assembly and vice-presidential candidate of the Congress for Progressive Change (CPC) had described El-Rufai as a bold and honest Nigeria, who was not a religious egoist or tribalist.
