A Second Republic lawmaker, Junaid Mohammed, has faulted the decision of President Muhammadu Buhari to make Mrs Zainab Ahmed the supervising minister of the Ministry of Finance.
The former minister, Mrs. Kemi Adeosun, vacated the seat last week after resigning her appointment for allegedly using a fake National Youth Service Corps exemption letter.
Buhari immediately asked Ahmed, the then Minister of State for Budget and National Planning, to oversee the finance ministry.
But Mohammed, in an interview with The PUNCH correspondent, said the latest appointment showed that no amount of criticism could change Buhari’s alleged acts of nepotism.
The former legislator accused the President of appointing his kinsmen into key positions.
