JUST IN: Deji Adeyanju writes on Tinubu’s Cabinet

I will like to extend my warmest congratulation to your excellency,
PRESIDENT ASIWAJU BOLA AHMED TINUBU, on emerging victorious in a
most keenly contested presidential election.

While the outcome of the election is being challenged at the Presidential Election Petition Tribunal, you must, in
the interim, face the serious issues of governance bedeviling our nation....CONTINUE READING

It is in the light of the foregoing that I commend your excellency on the
appointment of ministers, particularly, former governor EZENWO NYESOM
WIKE as the minister of the federal capital territory, FCT, LATEEF FAGBEMI,
SAN as the Attorney General of the Federation and minister of justice, WALE
EDUN as the Minister of Finance, as well as MUHAMMED ALI PATE as the
coordinating Minister of Health, amongst other ministers.

Their track record in private and public sphere is well known to all, and I have
no doubt that they will bring their wealth of experience to bear in turning our
country’s fortunes around, for the better.

While I understand the great responsibility and careful deliberation that goes
into selection of ministers and the subsequent allocation of portfolios, I,
however, regrettably note that unlike the names mentioned above, some
ministries, like Defence and youth, have not been given adequate
consideration in the appointment of ministers.

The youth hold immense
potential and are instrumental in driving the social, economic and political
progress of Nigeria. Consequently, their active participation in governance is
crucial for the meaningful representation of their interests. Such ministry
should be headed by a person who is not only a youth at mind but also a
youth in body. We should not return to the era where persons who are over 60
years old are appointed as minister of Youth.

Additionally, your excellency, I also want to draw your attention to the defense
portfolio and urge you to reconsider the appointment of the substantive
minister and minister for state in that regard. The defense ministry plays a
crucial role in ensuring the sovereignty and the well-being of our nation and its
citizens, and should ordinarily be manned by someone who is well versed in
our internal and external security.
Furthermore, there are a number of minister designates whose CV do not
match the ministries or portfolios that have been allocated to them. It is
imperative, your excellency, that you take a second look at the portfolios
recently announced, with a view to ensuring that only square pegs man
square holes….CONTINUE READING

As a concerned citizen deeply invested in the progress and well being of our
nation, I trust your wisdom and discernment in making decisions that will yield
positive outcomes for our nation as a whole. Thank you, your excellency, for
the consideration of my request.
Comrade Deji Adeyanju
