Ministerial List: Buhari Presented a List of Recycled Politicians – LP

3 Min Read

National Chairman of Labour Party, Alhaji Abdulsalam Abdulkadir has said that President Muhammadu Buhari’s ministerial list shows that the All Progressives Congress change mantra is fake because the president presented a list of ‘recycled politicians.’

Abdulkadir said “From independence till date, the same people are being recycled. Governors who ruled their states recklessly are on the list. They never considered any youth worthy of consideration as a minister. Many of them are analogues and are not in tune with modern day expectations.

“None of the ministerial nominees can meet our yearnings and expectations. It is very unfortunate that President Muhammadu Buhari will delay Nigerians for five months just for a list of recycled people and 21 names for ministerial positions. The implication is that before he brings the rest, four years tenure would have gone. This has shown Nigerians that nothing good will come from Buhari and the APC.

“This is to show Nigerians that the change mantra is fake; there is no sincerity of purpose there and no commitment to the Nigerian cause. They just deceived Nigerians with ‘change, change’ slogan and won the heart of Nigerians.”

The Peoples Democratic Party, in a statement in Abuja by its National Publicity Secretary, Chief Olisa Metuh also added that the list was not worth the wait.

The statement read 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.”

National Publicity Secretary of Afenifere, Yinka Odumakin said the names on the list doesn’t offer any hope for the average Nigerian.

He said “One would have loved to see fresh faces who can at least offer hope. The list is however replete with a lot of faces that have been active part of the rot of the past years. There are persons perching on mountains of corruption and we can only hope that the Senate has enough resolve to do a proper screening. These are all Genesis people and not Revelation.”
