As Nigerians await appointment of key government officials by President Muhammadu Buhari barely one month after assuming office, a community leader in Enugu State, Mr. Celestine Chukwu, has advocated for equity and professional consideration in the process of selecting ministers and other top government officials.
Chukwu who spoke to Nigerian Pilot Saturday in Abuja noted that the current administration could only engender meaningful development in the country if parochial interest and self-centered approach was shunned by President Buhari.
According to him, no developing Nation can survive without the contribution of all segments of the society.
Since the inception of the present government, only three appointments including Special Adviser and Special assistant on Media as well as Chief of Protocol Officer have been made.
Worried by delay and imminent rumours surrounding much-expected announcement of other key public officials, the Community Chieftain who is the incumbent President General Mburubu Community in Nkanu East Local Government Area of Enugu state declared, “There is need for the present administration to avoid taking any parochial decision in carrying out major policy trust of his government.
“Everyone knows that Nigeria is a country of multi-ethnic group and so effort should be made to incorporate every part of the country.
“So many People have been saying that President Buhari won because the entire north and parts of South West voted for him. That is not entirely true. The South-East and South-South made huge impact in his emergence as President.
On the recent proclamation by President Buhari that his age will limit his performance in his second spell as the leader of the most populous Nation in African, Mr Chukwu noted that no excuse whatever would be acceptable should the incumbent President fails to deliver.
