Abuja - The Conference of Nigerian Political Parties (CNPP) has called on President Muhammadu Buhari to immediately relieve former governor of Lagos State, Babatunde Fashola, former Rivers State governor, Rotimi Amaechi and all former governors serving in his cabinet of their duties.
A statement by its Secretary General, Willy Ezugwu, said proven technocrats should be appointed into the Federal Government, if Buhari really desires to succeed in attracting foreign investment into the country.
He said unless the former governors serving in Buhari’s cabinet are removed, the image of his administration will remain tainted with corruption, notwithstanding his anti corruption war.

“For President Muhammadu Buhari to succeed in his change agenda, all former governors in his cabinet must be sacked to create room for technocrats to run his government if he must succeed.
“Some former governors serving in this government not only left their respective states with empty treasury but also in heavy debts such that it took the President’s bailout fund for salary arrears of states’ workers to be paid.
“It will amount to effort in futility for the President to be labouring to attract investors as they will not entrust their hard-earned resources to well-known bad managers.
“This is the reason the Buhari government, which will be one year next month, yet has nothing to show for it except hardship and more hardship across the country despite the change mantra, “It said.
