The Inter-Party Advisory Council (IPAC) has raised concerns over some of the names on the additional ministerial list released by President Bola Tinubu on Wednesday.
IPAC National Chairman, Yabagi Sani, who appeared in an interview with Channels Television on Wednesday, August 2, said that the list which has seven former governors, two of whom respectively lost their last re-election bids, is worrisome particularly after his struggle for Nigeria’s return to democracy in the 1990s.
He also claimed that no Nigerian would say they are impressed by the President’s ministerial list.
“How can you come and then embark on policies that you know are anti-people and you now put people that you know? Some of the people that he put as ministers were rejected by the people; some of them contested and they were rejected.
“So, how can you bring them back through the back door again and say they must preside over the affairs of the people? That’s not the kind of country we want to run. We must begin to give Nigerians confidence.
“I’m disappointed – awfully disappointed – because, like I said, Mr President, Tinubu, is behaving differently from what I expected of him.”
