As Nigerians look forward to the setup of federal cabinet,the South West Youth Forum SWYF, urged President Bola Tinubu not to appoint former governors as minister.
Blaze Newz recalls that Tinubu was sworn-in as the president of the Federal Republic of Nigeria last month, May 29.
Appealing to the president, SWYF in a press statement signed by its Comr. Foluso Àjimuda made available to Blaze Newz said it will be an act of greed,shamelessness and selfishness that 8 years executive governor will be angling to be a minister while their political son is Governor.
The statement reads in part: “It is glaring that most of these past governors ruin government business without adequate plan, concept or blueprint. They are just after changing portfolio from the chief executive officer of the state to minister or senator.
“As governors, they had the opportunity to serve the people but they ended up serving themselves and their cohort alone with track records riddled with failed promises, corruptions and inefficiency.
“These past governors have nothing again to offer. Evidence across Nigeria shows that most state governors have bastardized Nigeria educational system to the extent that Corpers are now in charge of most schools as a result of non-recruitment of teachers. Even the few teachers available are owned backlogged of salary arrears.
“Little will one wonder why issues of Access, quality, inclusion and system
strengthening are prevalence across the states of the federation.Youth unemployment is also a critical factor that calls for attention of a serious government.
“It is a common adage that an idle mind will engage in social vices. Even with demography of 70% of the youth population, no state government pays attention to the plight of youth.
“Economically there is always multiplier effect of growing population; it offers
potentials for growth if resources are adequately harnessed. But unfortunately, this useful age-grade is left to their faith and the aftermath is the insecurity.
“The Ministers under Buhari administration looted the treasury and put the country in huge debt. The last government appointees failed and there was massive corruption, and what this government needs now is technocratics not all this failed
“President Tinubu administration that will have to contend with loan repayment or rescheduling alongside other challenges like insecurity,inflation and unemployment!
“Added to these are oil theft which is on the rise and a country that’s teetering on the brink of bankruptcy. So, we expect President Bola Tinubu to go as far
– and as fast – as he can to resolve the socioeconomic logjam and shameless opulence
currently troubling Nigeria’s.

“A hungry man is an angry man and an angry man is a violent man!
“Given the foregoing, Mr. President should appoint better hands as ministers,
individuals who are technocrats and willing to make good legacies, people who are
managers and rescue the nation from the present economic doldrums..
“We have no doubt in your ability not to only defend over 220 million Nigerians but to also make lives bearable and affordable to ordinary Nigerians. We are confident that your experience in public sector and track record in human resources management will be reflected in your ministerial nominees.
“Wishing you success in your new and highest call for servant-hood to the nation, we conclude in the word of Nelson Mandela, “Humanity is the essence of human”.
“We are sure your Excellency will always put human first in all your endavours while
discharging your duties as the president of Nigeria.
“Please, accept our hearty congratulation on your victory at the poll and assurances of our highest regards.”
