Balarabe Musa Expresses Disappointment Over Buhari’s Ministerial List


A former Governor of Kaduna state, Malam Balarabe Musa, has expressed disappointment at President Muhammadu Buhari’s ministerial list arguing that that there is nothing spectacular about the names.

“Why did it take the President four months to come up with these names? I believe this is the question that many informed Nigerians should ask,” said Musa.

“These are the same old names, ordinary Nigerians who the President knows and he must have even met them several times. So, what is particular about them that he wasted so much time in appointing them ministers.

“But there are about two or three who I can say are distinguished among them like, Audu Ogbeh who I have known for a very long time.

“We were together during the Second Republic. He was a minister while I was governor then. Audu Ogbeh has an outstanding public record that everybody knows.”

The Senate President, Bukola Saraki announced to the Senators 21 ministerial nominees on Tuesday and fixed October 13 to commence their screening.
