Min­is­ters: Youths not liv­ing up to ex­pec­ta­tion

Daily Trust - - INSIDE POLITICS - From Hope Abah, Makurdi

A youth ac­tivist and leader of Civil So­ci­ety for Good Gov­er­nance and Trans­parency In­ter­na­tional, Com­rade Austin Agada, has said that the non-in­clu­sion of younger peo­ple in the Pres­i­dent Muham­madu Buhari’s min­is­te­rial nom­i­na­tion shows that the youths were not liv­ing up to ex­pec­ta­tion.

Agada in an in­ter­view with Daily Trust in Makurdi, yes­ter­day, opined that the pres­i­dent may have taken a clue to avert dis­as­ter from his pre­de­ces­sor who failed Nige­ri­ans in many ways be­cause of the in­ex­pe­ri­ence of the youths he ap­pointed into var­i­ous po­si­tions of re­spon­si­bil­i­ties.

He hailed the cal­iber of peo­ple nom­i­nated by Buhari to be part of his gov­ern­ment, say­ing that in all ram­i­fi­ca­tions, given the pedi­gree of the nom­i­nees, the coun­try would soon wit­ness the needed change.

Ac­cord­ing to him, what hap­pened in the coun­try dur­ing the re­cent gen­eral elec­tion which brought the former op­po­si­tion party to take over gov­ern­ment was a peace­ful rev­o­lu­tion by the en­tire Nige­ri­ans who wanted a change ir­re­spec­tive of tribe and re­li­gion.
