A chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Lagos State, Ambassador Abayomi Nurain Mumuni, has urged President Bola Tinubu, to pick the best people in his team as ministers, advisers and heads of various agencies.
Mumuni who was a member of the Security and Intelligence Committee of Tinubu/Shettima Presidential Campaign Council, said this was necessary for the new administration to move the country forward.
He stated these in a statement by his Media Aide, Rasheed Abubakar, urging Nigerians to rally support for Tinubu, while calling on the former Lagos state governor to put round peg in a round hole by appointing the best brains as ministers and advisers.
The former gubernatorial candidate of the defunct Congress for Progressives Change (CPC), added that this will help the new President to achieve his aims in all areas of human endeavours.
Mumuni, also expressed confidence that Tinubu will not disappoint Nigerians being an experienced politician and astute administrator who has been in the political system for so long.
According to him, “So, for Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, he’s not starting on ground zero. He only needs to build on these legacies. He is the kind of leader we need in this country. The leader that is strong politically and administravely savvy.
“With Tinubu’s exposure, education, background and network, I believe that his administration will be a huge success for the entire Nigerians. He has great minds with him right from inception. He is a great mentor who has mentored so many great leaders. Hence, it won’t be difficult for him to assemble his team.
“Asiwaju has always emphasised that he will run an inclusive government and will be fair to all irrespective of religious, tribal and partisan persuasions. This is the best move for us to move the country forward and heal the nation. I want to urge Mr. President to pick the best among those who are his team. The patriotic and qualified ones with the interest of Nigeria at heart.
“He also has the important task of uniting aggrieved members of the APC back to the fold. Those who kicked against the Muslim-Muslim ticket and those who felt slighted with the position of the party on the National Assembly leadership. As a party, we must continue to forge a united front always.
“Asiwaju Tinubu should also remember that the formation of the ruling APC is an amalgamation of progressive political parties.
The capable ones should be given opportunity to serve the country with their exposure and expertise. He should embrace these tendency.”
