Opposition political parties and some socio-political groups on Tuesday said President Muhammadu Buhari’s ministerial list read out by Senate President Bukola Saraki did not worth the long wait by Nigerians.The PDP, in a statement in Abuja by its National Publicity Secretary, Chief Olisa Metuh, stated that Buhari’s delay in constituting his cabinet could not be justified.
It said, “By a mere look at the list, one can tell that there is nothing to be excited about, especially considering the length of time it took the President to come up with it. Looking at the list, it is hard to put a finger on why it should take any serious-minded and focused government six months after its election to assemble such a regular team.”
He said the list and the length of time it took to present it had further confirmed that the All Progressives Congress-led administration was being driven by propaganda and deceit, a development he said raised doubts about the sincerity of the government’s anti-corruption crusade. The National Chairman of LP, Alhaji Abdulsalam Abdulkadir, said that the President’s list was filled with “recycled politicians and individuals.”
