Tanko Yakasai, a founding member of Arewa Consultative Forum, ACF, has claimed that President Muhamamdu Buhari’s ministerial list includes some corrupt individuals.
Buhari had sent a 43-man list of nominees to the Senate, seeking their confirmation. In a statement issued in Kano on Tuesday, July 23, 2019, 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.”
