uhari's Ministers: What People Are Saying versus The Truth

Some Nigerians are funny, they say they expected President Muhammadu Buhari to appoint technocrats as Ministers. But the question to ask is, who is a Technocrat? A man or woman who has been schooled in a particular field, example Professor, Lawyer, Doctor, Engineer, Administrator, etc.

Now to the matter; the likes of Babatunde Fashola, Rotimi Amaechi, Udoma Udo Udoma, Dambazzau, etc are all technocrats in their various fields of study and they worked for the victory of their party.

So, any Technocrat who is just sitting at home and waiting for appointment is dreaming. You must come out and participate in politics, contribute money to your party, then you can be considered serious.

Below is how some Nigerians are reacting to #TheLIST of Ministers:

According to Punch, protests at state levels greeted the announcement of President Buhari's ministerial list by the President of the Senate, Dr. Bukola Saraki on Tuesday.

From the Coalition Against Corrupt Leaders came a petition to the Senate against the nomination of a former Lagos State Governor, Babatunde Fashola. CACOL's petition had been dated Saturday, October 3, asking the Senate not to confirm Fashola "should his name pop-up as a ministerial nominee."

Also, a gang known as Integrity Group has petitioned the President and Senate to protest the nomination of a former Governor of Rivers State, Rotimi Amaechi, as a ministerial nominee.

Funny enough, none of these groups have filed a case in court against the men they are accusing.

In Oyo State, the ruling APC asked on Buhari to revisit his nomination of a legal practitioner, Adebayo Shittu, claiming that the ministerial-nominee was not a team player in the party.

Senators react
Senator Jeremiah Useni, in an interview with journalists, said having only three women on the ministerial list was not good enough.

"I wish to see more women on the list. I believe that the President will be more gender sensitive in the next batch since he said the 21 names he sent is a partial list," he said.

'Buhari never told me I would be minister'
Former Governor of Ekiti State, who is one of the ministerial nominees, Dr. Kayode Fayemi, has described his nomination as a surprise.

"He did not tell anyone to the best of my knowledge and I would have thought that I was in vantage position to know more than others, I was with him for five days before then. I was with him in New York at the United Nations General Assembly and he never uttered a word about his list to me nor to anyone else.

"We came back to Nigeria together, I was with him up till 4pm on the evening he submitted the list to the President of the Senate and I didn't have any clue of what is going to happen. So, to that extent, I was pleasantly surprised."

Another Ekiti ex-governor, Segun Oni, said Buhari had proved to all that he was not only a statesman but also a loyal party man.

He said, "The President is a party member and his thinking is always along with the party and he has always been saying so.

"You will know that the President, on his own, knows the party and he wants to involve the party as much as possible and he has done that. No one can complain now because you will see that the leaders that we will want to see are there and we are very grateful to the President."
