Jedy –Agba: When A Smile Equals Crude Oil ... An Appointment Well-Deserved

Despite apparent criticisms by political opponents amidst obvious shortcomings, President Muhammadu Buhari's ministerial list forwarded to the Senate about a month ago for screening was an improvement on the 2015 list. It is gratifying to note that the process of screening and confirmation has been completed by the Senate preceding this week's inauguration of the new ministers. Anybody who failed to note the fact that the President reacts to critical observatories from analysts, the opposition and opinion leaders alike as exemplified by the recent ministerial list is therefore being economical with the truth. Several Nigerians have had cause to complain, time and time again, that President Buhari's cabinet in his first term (2015-2019), was patronizing or was made up of particularly political party affiliates who obviously had nothing to offer the country in terms of performance. It is to be understood that many public-spirited Nigerians irrespective of party affiliations, are keenly interested in the quality of materials that are being shunned out or recycled by the system for leadership positions.
