Buhari’s appointments will be balanced , says ex-lawmaker

Dr Nya Asuquo, a former House of Representatives member, has appealed to Nigerians to be patient with President Muhammadu Buhari over his recent appointments.

Asuquo made the appeal while speaking with journalists during the occasion of his 67th birthday celebration on Sunday in Calabar.

According to him, it will be balanced in no distant time and it is too early and unfair for Nigerians to criticise Buhari over his recent appointments.

“There are over 5,000 appointments yet to be made. Nigerians should be patient with the president for he will make a balance in no distance time.

“As president, people will always criticise your actions and inaction. Nigerians should not judge Buhari by the few appointments he has made.

“There will be ministers, heads of government department, federal boards, advisers and others,’’ he said.

Asuquo advised those appointed to see their positions as a call to serve and not a ticket to embezzling public funds.

He said the APC-led government of Buhari had recorded remarkable success since it came on board, especially in its efforts to bringing looters of the nation’s treasury to justice.

On the issue of insurgency, he said that the Boko Haram had, in the past few months, been pushed almost to the back burner.

“In fact, the military has almost made the Boko Haram insurgents to look insignificant and the president has given them three months to end Boko Haram,’’ he said.

Asuquo represented Odukpani/ Calabar Municipality Federal Constituency of Cross River between 1999-2003 under the platform of the defunct All Nigerian People’s Party(ANPP).

    I think what President Buhari is doing a right things and at the right time ,so all Nigeria people need to be very patient to allow Peesident Buhari cleaning up the messes. It is not very simplified job do, but hard you can imagine it

    I am 100% agreed with you. He needs to do some background check on everyone, so as not to choose another fraudulent minister. Ex-president Obasanjo rushed to that process, and that was one of the factors that contributed to his failure. Please, beg Nigerians to let this man go slow in his own pace to clean up the 16-years created mess.

    ASUQUO IS A CLOWN,THERE ARE NO 5000 APPOINTMENTS YET TO BE MADE FIRST AND BOARD APPOINTMENTS ARE PART TIME JOBS ,NOT STATUTORY POSITIONS.TODAY IN
    1.NIGERIAN SECURITY COUNCILMEETING THERE IS NO ONE FROM SOUTH EAST.
    2.NIGERIAN DEFENCE COUNCILMEETING THERE IS NO SOUTH EAST PERSON.
    3. NIGERIAN ECONOMIC COUNCILMEETING THERE IS NO ONE FROM SOUTH EAST
    4.NIGERIAN GOVT KITCHEN CABINET MEETING THERE IS NO ONE FROM SOUTH EAST
    BOARD MEMBERS AND MINISTERS EXCEPT ATTORNEY GENERAL ARE NOT MEMBERS OF THESE COUNCILS THAT DECIDE THE FATE OF NIGERIA,SO THE ARGUNMENT OF BALANCING AND PATIENCE IS DECEITFUL,STUPID AND MISCHEVIOUS,NDIGBO MUST DISREGARD THIS ADVICE.
