‘Forget 2nd Term Without Performance’ — Dele Momodu Asks Tinubu To Rejig Cabinet

Dele Momodu, a chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), has called on President Bola Tinubu to bring in capable individuals who can help address the nation’s challenges into his cabinet.

Speaking with journalists on Tuesday in Lagos, Momodu acknowledged the difficult times many Nigerians have faced over the past year and urged Tinubu to invite people with fresh ideas to help turn things around.

According to Momodu, the President needs to do more to meet citizens’ expectations, stressing that Nigeria is blessed with some of the greatest human beings scattered across the globe.

He advised Tinubu to find and bring these individuals into the government.

“The best way to get a second term by any leader is when you have performed in the first term,” Momodu said, adding “My honest advice, borne out of patriotism, is that you urgently get the best people on board.”

The publisher further urged the president to surround himself with people who would provide honest feedback, warning against the culture of sycophancy which he described as an albatross to good governance.

Momodu also called on Tinubu to solve the energy crisis in the country which he believes is crucial for propelling development, stating: “Until we solve the energy crisis, I don’t think we will be ready to join the comity of other nations in their march towards advancement.

“We also need to declare a state of emergency in infrastructure, education, food security, and overall security.”
