A human rights activist and former federal lawmaker, Senator Shehu Sani, has described as a big disappointment the ministerial list of President Bola Ahmed Tinubu.
The former lawmaker during an ARISE TV interview, criticised the inclusion of the former governor of Kaduna State, Nasir el-Rufai, in the ministerial list recently released to the Senate.
President Tinubu, on Thursday, sent 28 ministerial nominees to the Senate through Femi Gbajabiamila, his Chief of Staff and former Speaker of the House of Representatives.
Senate President Godswill Akpabio read the names of ministerial nominees, including those of four former governors, on the floor of the Senate.
But Senator Shehu Sani while reacting to the inclusion of El-Rufai, opined that Tinubu did not consider competence in the list, saying that el-Rufai was a “tragedy.”
According to Shehu Sani, “With the nominations which I have seen, the one representing Kaduna State, Nasir El-Rufai, is a tragedy.”
Sani wondered why such a man is given an opportunity to serve the country with all that he has done and has said in office in the past.
He claimed that if President Tinubu means well, this is not the best time to please and appease former governors but a time to appease Nigerians and bring in competent hands to deliver.
Expressing disappointment with the list, Senator Sani said in the last eight years, Nigerians suffered in the hands of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), and that the president should know this is the best time to prove his competence and capacity to lead Nigeria to greater hieghts.
