The spokesman for the Atiku Abubakar 2023 presidential campaign organization, Daniel Bwala, has again criticised President Bola Ahmed Tinubu‘s newly inaugurated ministers, saying some of them are of questionable character.
According to Bwala, he does not expect the newly sworn-in ministers to perform beyond 15 per cent.
Goldennewsng reports that the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) chieftain stated this on Wednesday while featuring on Channels Television’s Sunrise Daily programme.
Bwala stressed that, based on the personalities appointed by the President, he doesn’t expect much from them, asserting that the portfolio assigned to some of them was merely political.
“I feel that when it comes to the number of ministers, he (Tinubu) was more particular about politics than governance. The number of governors in the cabinet and the portfolios assigned to some individuals were purely political.
“I don’t have an expectation of a performance that is going to be beyond 15 per cent, looking at the cabinet members.
“This is because you have a cabinet that is full of people whose track record betrays what we are expecting of them. A governor who did not do much in a state where he had the resources and made executive decisions and nobody questioned him yet couldn’t do anything,” Bwala said during the live interview.
Goldennewsng reports that President Tinubu, on Monday, swore in 45 ministers into his cabinet, which had former Rivers State Governor Nyesom Wike as the Minister of Federal Capital Territory (FCT) and Festus Keyamo as Minister of Aviation.
Other ministers include Wale Edun (Finance and Coordinating Minister of the Economy), Adegboyega Oyetola (Transportation), David Umahi (Works), Festus Keyamo (Aviation and Aerospace Development), and Betta Edu (Humanitarian Affairs and Poverty Alleviation).
