From Ahmed Idris Birnin Kebbi
President Muhammad Buhari has been urged to appointment credible and people with integrity as ministers into his cabinet and also invite foreign investors in order to boost the economy of the country.
In a memo to President Muhammad Buhari signed by a Senior Lecturer at the Sokoto State Polytechnic, Bello Mohammed , and made available to newsmen on Monday in Birnin Kebbi stated that based on his party’s campaign promises, he must consider his new cabinet on merit and competence.
“In view of your recent campaign promises, policy for change and the fight against corruption, impunity, economic sabotage and other crimes against our people, I am compelled to suggest appointment of your key officers should be based on integrity ,merit, competence, experience and appropriate qualification.
“All the key officers to be employed by your administration should be trained on financial and the civil service regulations. And as I am a product/international Alumni of a USA University, we can invite some Nigeria academicians residing in USA to come forward and give their own contributions. “.
Nassarawa who sought for re- organization of the civil service noted that emphasis should placed on training of civil servants for new research and development.
“ There is need to cut down the cost of running government so that all the loopholes that enable corruption to thrive were blocked. The money saved should be used to empower our people through training and job creation. This will drastically reduce the level of poverty, begging and idleness in the country.
“As the president of the country, you would face a lot of challenges, the biggest, in my view, is corruption. The rule books have been thrown away and everybody is doing what is likes”.
