A chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Dele Momodu, has condemned the ministerial list of President Bola Tinubu.
According to the PDP chieftain, the nominees were below par, adding that the president’s list was worse than his predecessor, Muhammadu Buhari.
He said the situation of Maryam Shetty showed that the President did not do due diligence on his nominees, adding that it was disgraceful for Tinubu to have replaced her on her way to the screening exercise.
The Ovation boss stated these when he was featured on the latest edition of a Podcast, Mic On.
He opined that some of Tinubu’s ministers are unknown, unlike what was obtainable in the past.
Momodu noted that former Kaduna State governor Nasir El-Rufai was an original version of himself when he was a minister under PDP.
According to Momodu: “Every leader has what it takes to be a good resident if he has good advisers and listens to them. It’s just like a journalist without corrections. He will always carry fake news.
“For any leader to succeed, he must look at his team, and what I’m seeing now is worst than Buhari’s team.
“What I expected was a star-studded cabinet, I like to recall myself with sweet memories of Ibrahim Babangida’s cabinet in those days.
“We remember them till today. Most of the people appointed now, I don’t know them. Under Babangida, I remember Akinyele, Bolaji Akinyemi, Bolasodun Ajibola, Tai Solarin, Wole Soyinka.
“You can’t say that today; somebody is on her way to screen you remove her; that’s disgraceful; it means you didn’t do your due diligence before appointing people.
“In the days of Okonjo-Iweala, Ezekesili, Nubu Ribadu, original El-Rufai when he was a minister under PDP was original El-Rufai.”
