A chieftain of the All Progressives Congress and member of the Media Strategy Subcommittee of the party’s Presidential Transition Council, Aliyu Audu, has said 45 ministers appointed by President Bola Tinubu is not enough.

Audu said this on Wednesday while speaking on Channels TV Sunrise Daily.

While not stating a particular number of ministers to be appointed, he said, “I don’t think 45 is even enough. I don’t think 48 is enough. We have a population of over 200 million. We are in a crisis.”

Audu asserted that during Bola Tinubu’s tenure as the governor of Lagos State, it was widely recognised that bringing governance closer to the people necessitated the establishment of additional local governments.

“A lot of people thought he was taking it too far but look at how Lagos has moved in 24 years and how every other state has moved in 24 years.

“I’m not talking about potential. I’m not talking about what it used to be before but I’m talking about sheer growth between then and now,” he said.
