National Chairman of the Labour Party, Alhaji Abdulkadir Abdulsalam, says the ministerial nominees sent to the Senate by President Buhari for screening, shows that the president has nothing to offer Nigerians.
According to him, Nigerian youths who voted en-mass for him have been shortchanged from the list.
“For us in Labour Party, we do not see anything that resembles change as far as the ministerial team is concerned. Imagine bringing someone who served in the government of the late Sarduana of Sokoto to serve as minister in 2015. Buhari has nothing to offer Nigeria.
There is no promise of change at all. All these people are analogue persons who cannot bring about any change under the current dispensation. It is also very unfortunate that Nigerian youth who make up the greater percentage of our population and who voted for Buhari massively were not given their due share in the ministerial nomination,” he decried.
