Next Level: Appoint Competent Individuals, PDP BoT Tells Buhari




The Chairman of the Board of Trustees of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Senator Walid Jibrin, has called on President Muhammadu Buhari to appoint competent hands to run the country.

He also urged President Buhari to appoint his ministers quickly, adding that delay is not good for the nation.

Speaking to The Punch, Jibirin said: “We are the PDP, we are not the APC.

“Maybe they have their own policy on how to bring up their team.

“Maybe, they are doing a lot of homework. Luckily, they have now come up with the name of the Chief of Staff, and the Secretary to the Federal Government of Nigeria, which is a good omen.

“We hope that by this announcement — these two key positions of government — they will now come and announce the names of the ministers, the board and so on, because delaying the appointment of ministers is not a good omen for the administration of Nigeria.

“So we urge them to hasten to do that. I will not say I am condemning them but I want to appeal to them that they should put up machinery in motion to set up their team.”

Speaking to the economy, the PDP BoT chairman urged the president to focus on employment generation, human capital development and infrastructure.

On insecurity, he also urged Buhari to put an end to kidnapping, banditry and other forms of insecurity.
