“We have carefully followed Nasir El- Rufa’i’s past record and came to the conclusion that he is a person of steely posture, but a humble and approachable person, who is merely impatient with persons who fail to follow due process and are eager to benefit from the system instead of rendering self-less services “, Uba concluded.
