Buhari Solidarity Front, BSF, a group championing the visions and policies of the President Muhammadu Buhari-led federal government, has expressed satisfaction over the president’s fulfillment of his promise to release the list of his ministerial nominees and his choice of individuals to occupy positions in his administration.
According to a press release signed by Victor Oyewole, Emeka Oraetoka, and Samuel Egere, BSF’s national chairman, national coordinator, and national secretary, respectively and made available to Nigerian Pilot, the group observed that, despite divergent reactions trailing the delay in releasing the list and the president’s choice, what mattered was that the government was set to work for Nigerians.
“At last, the long-awaited ministerial list has been released to the Senate for confirmation. There is no doubt that this action has once again ignited people’s reactions, either positive or negative. This we of the Buhari Solidarity Front, BSF, consider to be the beauty of democracy.
“BSF is particularly happy that the PMB-led government has succeeded in putting to shame political opponents who have been prodding him to appoint what they called technocrats as ministers, so that illustrious men and women who worked tirelessly to bring about change will be left un-accommodated in the government.
“In this regard, we wish to highly commend the political sagacity exhibited by the president in interpreting correctly the evil intentions of the proponents of this idea, in place of politicians who have been with him all these years, and have really understood the vision and mission of the APC.”
The forum further expressed confidence in the capacity of those already submitted to the Senate for confirmation, saying:
“We wish to state unequivocally that the individuals so far presented to the Senate for screening are eminently qualified to work with PMB. This is because it is the head that will call the tone. In this regard, it is an established fact that the integrity of the president is not in doubt.
The group noted the reactions from some quarters targeted at certain nominees such as Rt. Honourable Chibuike Amaechi and Chief Audu Ogbeh, and added that, “with the stuff President Buhari is made of, he must have done a thorough scrutiny of these persons before submitting them for screening and confirmation by the Senate.”
