CNPP Urges Buhari To Reshuffle Cabinet Over Economic Hardship

New-FECThe Conference of Nigeria Political Parties (CNPP) has urged President Muhammadu Buhari to reshuffle his cabinet as part of measures to resolve the hardship currently being faced by Nigerians.
The CNPP said lack of proper response to the lingering energy, fuel and economic crisis in the country portrayed the Buhari administration as insensitive to the plight of Nigerians, hence the need to reshuffle his cabinet to save the country from further anguish.
The CNPP Secretary-General, Chief Willy Ezugwu, made the call in a statement he issued yesterday in Abuja.
Mr. Ezugwu also said that the planned 100 per cent increment in Value Added Tax (VAT), the inability of the government to meet its self-imposed April 7 deadline to end queues in filling stations, and the 45 per cent hike in electricity tariff were indications that the All Progressives Congress-led federal government is disconnected from the reality.
According to the CNPP scribe, “The President Muhammadu Buhari administration has shown severally that it is insensitive to the plight of Nigerians. This is occasioned by its policy decisions that have inflicted serious economic injuries on already impoverished Nigerians.
“Such policy decisions of the present government include its insistence on implementing a 45 percent tariff increase at a time power generation has dropped to zero level.
“We cannot agree less with the president of the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC), Ayuba Wabba, who insisted that the 45% electricity tariff increase was illegal, unfair, unjustifiable and a further exploitation of the already exploited Nigerians”.
Ezugwu, therefore, called on Mr. Buhari to ‘rejig’ his cabinet by putting square pegs in square holes to redress the present situation.
