The opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has expressed disappointment in President Muhammadu Buhari’s decision to appoint so-called lesser members of his cabinet first rather than the big ones.
Speaking in a statement on Sunday, July 7, the PDP expressed frustration at the nature of the president’s appointments.
The party claimed that rather than make the big appointments to tackle economic and security issues among others, the president made appointments that reportedly benefited him personally.
The PDP accused Buhari of “abandoning Nigerians to their fate and being more interested in appointing aides to serve his immediate personal comfort and necessities.”
The party said it was highly unfortunate that at a time millions of Nigerians were hurting and suffering untold hardship due to lack of attention to critical sectors of the economy and national life, President Buhari is only concerned about his personal needs.
The party said: “That is why at the time Nigerians expect urgent interventions on critical issues of national insecurity and uncertainties; kidnapping and bloodletting; high costs of food and essential services; lack of affordable healthcare, decayed infrastructure and excruciating poverty in the land, President Buhari and his handlers are more interested in appointing house keepers and managers of social events that has only to do with him.”
