Former Vice President Atiku Abubakar, yesterday, affirmed that President Muhammadu Buhari made the right choices with the nominees in his incoming cabinet, expressing optimism that they will be agents of change, who will place the country above any parochial interest.
The former vice president, who spoke in Kano, through the chairman, Atiku Loyalists Group, Alhaji Muhammadu Sugar, against the backdrop of insinuations that he (Atiku) was unhappy with the list of ministers, stated that he was happy with the list.
The vice president stressed that the caliber of persons who made the list have provided him hope that the country was on the right path.
Also refuting media reports that the Turakin Adamawa was among the big losers on the ministerial list for not reportedly having a candidate, Alhaji Sugar stressed that in the first place, the All Progressives Congress chieftain never sought for any of his supporters to be on the list.
Secondly, Sugar noted that the minister-designate from Adamawa State, Musa Muhammad, is just like a son to Atiku.
He however, noted that presently, the country needed the joint contributions of the teeming masses of the country, if the real change Nigerians were yearning for would be possible.
According to him, the populace must be ready to rally round President Buhari to effect the change.
