MINISTERIAL LIST: Don’t expect anything special from Buhari’s govt -Yakasai

‘Restructuring was conceived by Afenifere to destabilise Nigeria’— Yakasai

One of the founding fathers of Arewa Consultative Forum (ACF) Tanko Yakasai on Tuesday said Nigeria should not expect any special thing from Buhari’s government, especially as the newly released ministerial list is embedded with ‘known evils’.

He also carpeted the president on his fight against corruption, alleging, that fantastically corrupt people made the ministerial list.

Recall that President Buhari had transmitted a 43-man list of nominees to the Senate, seeking their confirmation.

In a statement issued in Kano on Tuesday, Yakasai said the list makes mockery of the president’s anti-corruption war.

“The new ministerial list submitted by the president to the senate is representative enough, but the nomination of certain people perceived to be fantastically corrupt made mockery of the president’s war against corruption.

“The fact remains that the returnees are many means that the policy of the new government will not be much different from that of the outgoing.

“My only observation is that since the majority of the nominees are already known to the president his delay in submitting ministerial nomination is unjustifiable.
