Buhari to be wary of the kind of ministers he will appoint as that would determine the extent to which he will effect the change that he and his party, the All Progressives Congress, APC, have been professing.
“As advocates of quality leadership and good governance in Nigeria, the Nigeria Leadership Congress, NLC, wishes to offer its thoughts on the outcome of the just concluded elections which must be matched with a revolutionary cabinet that is truly capable of effecting a radical change of guard at all levels”, the press statement stated.
According to the organization, Nigerians would be expecting that the president-elect’s cabinet would reflect all the fine ideals, standards and principles that he stands for.
“Nigerians expect to see General Muhammadu Buhari’s National Executive Council comprising truly honest and patriotic Nigerians who enjoy widespread recognition and respect; they should be proven leaders who have distinguished themselves through excellent performance and they must be achievers who are known for rendering selfless services”, the organization added.
The organisation went ahead to list Sen Ken Nnamani, Ambassador Baba Gana Kingibe, Col. Dangiwa Umar, Governor Adams Oshiomole, Governor Babatunde Raji Fashola and Chief Innocent Audu Ogbe as some of the notable Nigerians that can deliver the nation from its present situation of economic quagmire.
The body said as part of the engine room that would formulate policies and implement them, the persons mentioned above would help Buhari to succeed as they are known political strategists, public policy experts and people with deep knowledge of the geopolitical configuration of the rainbow coalition called Nigeria.
