Edo State Governor, Comrade Adams Oshiomhole has commended President Muhammadu Buhari on the appointment of the Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Chief of Staff, Comptroller-General of Customs and Presidential Liaison Officers to the National Assembly.
According to the Edo State Governor, the appointments were based on merit and not political sentiments or ethnic consideration as some would have Nigerians believe.
Governor Oshiomhole, in a statement signed by his Chief Press Secretary, Mr. Peter Okhiria, noted that, “The Nigerian nation has come to a point where we have to use the best hands to confront the peculiarity of our problems. It is not all the time we descend to the level of geopolitical balancing; we need to employ unusual methods to solve unusual problems.’’
Besides, “the level of decay in the country at present requires very seasoned hands and incorruptible Nigerians that would help to translate the APC agenda of change for the benefit of all Nigerians. We must not reduce governance to political patronage of bread and butter,’’ he said.
He, therefore, congratulated the Chief of Staff, the Secretary to the Government of the Federation and the Comptroller-General of Customs, all of whom he had very close relationship with and whose credentials stand tall among their compeers and wished them well in their new jobs of helping to sanitize a system that has become so rotten and corrupt as a result of manifest incompetence and mismanagement.
“We cannot continue to apply same template in the recruitment of persons and expect different results. The new appointees are Nigerians who have served the country in different capacities before now and deserved every bit of our cooperation and support to make them excel in their new jobs,” the Governor emphasised.
