Activist wants Buhari to look beyond party in appointing ministers

06 June 2015, 15:03

Nsukka - A human right activist, Christopher Ozor, on Saturday urged President Muhammadu Buhari, to look beyond party considerations in appointing his ministers.

Ozor told the media in Nsukka, Enugu State, that this would enable Buhari to select the calibre of people that would help him to meet public expectations.

"For Mr President to get capable hands to help in running his government, he should not focus only on All Progressives Congress but should look beyond the party in selecting ministers,” he said.

He said that many Nigerians were looking forward to the fulfillment of the president’s campaign promises.

Ozor told the media that to meet the expectations of the citizenry, Buhari should engage capable hands and technocrats to handle various sectors of the economy.

He urged Buhari to ensure that the activities of Boko Haram ended in the next six months to enable his government concentrate on how to fix the economy.

The activist pleaded with Nigerians to support as well as give the present administration some time to stabilize and carry out the much expected changes.

"Buhari as president cannot do it alone; he needs the support of all Nigerians both at home and in Diaspora to move the country forward."

"We should give him time to fix the economy, fight corruption as well as end Boko Haram that has become a nightmare to Nigerians."
