Buhari’s ministerial nominees, a mockery on war against corruption, says Yakassai

Second Republic politician, Alhaji Tanko Yakassai has faulted the list of ministerial nominees of President Muhammadu Buhari.

Elder Statesman, Tanko Yakassai.

He disclosed this in a statement in Kano, noting that although the new ministerial list submitted by the president to the Senate is representative enough, “the nomination of certain people perceived to be ‘fantastically corrupt ‘made mockery of the president’s war against corruption.”

According to the elder statesman, “the fact that returnees are many means the policy of the new government will not be much different with that of the outgoing.”

The elder statesman also wondered why it took the president this long to come forth with the list of his nominees, pointing out that, “since majority of the nominees are already known to the president, his delay in submitting ministerial nomination is unjustifiable.”
