Nwuche calls for re­view of past ap­point­ments

Daily Trust - - INSIDE POLITICS - By Muideen Olaniyi

Former Deputy Speaker of the House of Rep­re­sen­ta­tives, Prince Chibu­dom Nwuche, has hailed Pres­i­dent Muham­madu Buhari for the cal­iber of per­sons he sent to the Sen­ate for screen­ing and con­fir­ma­tion as Min­is­ters in his gov­ern­ment.

The former law­maker said most of the min­is­te­rial nom­i­nees were per­sons of proven in­tegrity and ca­pac­ity, who had dis­tin­guished them­selves in var­i­ous fields of hu­man en­deavor and are bound to bring great value and mileage to the Buhari ad­min­is­tra­tion.

Prince Nwuche, who spoke on the side­lines of the Sen­ate min­is­te­rial screen­ing ex­er­cise at the Na­tional As­sem­bly said, “The thrust of any gov­ern­ment would be de­ter­mined by those who drive key port­fo­lios. What makes a gov­ern­ment thick is the cal­iber of per­sons that are se­lected to fill vi­tal po­si­tions and of­fices in the gov­ern­ment, such as min­is­ters and ad­vis­ers,” he said.

He, how­ever, fur­ther called for “more foren­sic re­view of ap­point­ments” made pre­vi­ously in some strate­gic gov­ern­ment agen­cies and paras­tatals, where peo­ple who ac­cord­ing to him lack vi­sion and ca­pac­ity are still hold­ing sway and con­sti­tut­ing clogs in the wheel of progress.
