Buhari Must Look Beyond Party Members To Form His Cabinet – Thomas-Wilson Ikubese


BuhariPlaneConvener of YesWeFit Revolutionary Movement and former Presidential Aspirant, Dr. Thomas-Wilson Ikubese has asked Buhari to see past his party men and women when he wants to form his cabinet.

Thomas-Wilson, as he answered questions on Political Platform, a current affairs programme on Breeze 91.9 FM Radio Akure, said that appointments into public office such as Ministers should never be based on parties but should aim to improve Nigeria.

His words, “The President should also take a cursory look at some of the young people that declared to run for the presidency in 2019, with the hope of integrating them into his government, as many of them are bubbling with fresh ideas

“I’m not in this struggle for what I can get for myself, but for what I can contribute to the society.

“As an appointee of President Buhari, it would be difficult for me to bring my creativity to the fore to the benefit of the nation because, this administration has no roadmap for the lifespan of its tenure.”

““Mr Babatunde Raji Fashola who performed outstandingly well as the governor of Lagos state, but could not replicate the same feat as a Minister under President Buhari, his non-performance was a reflection of the lack of direction of the Buhari presidency which crippled his propositions, as an appointee is not expected to outshine his master.”

“If Nigeria is functionally governed, within two years, people will wonder if it’s the same country that many were running away from.”
