Lawyer, Varsity Don Urge New Ministers To Focus On Developmental Projects
STAKEHOLDERS in Cross River State have tasked the ministers that were newly sworn in on Wednesday to work with President Muhammadu Buhari to give the country the desired change.
Legal Practitioner Ntufam Utum Eteng who described the ministers as intellectuals said the President cannot move the country forward without their help.
While charging them to focus on projects that would bring about change, Eteng called for reconstruction of Federal roads especially the Calabar/ Katsina-ala, and Calabar/Itu roads.
He said: “What we expect the ministers to do is to cooperate with the President. Buhari alone cannot do it without the help of some intellectuals.
“The primary aim is that they should concentrate in their jobs by helping the President. They should focus on promoting ideas that will bring development to the federation. We expect them to do their best in looking at the Calabar/katsina-ala road, Calabar/Itu road and many other roads and they should act fast in putting them in order”.
On his part, a lecturer in the department of Physiology, University of Calabar, Dr. Charles Mfem said the country need a direction to development and growth especially the education sector.
He said, “I’m equally expecting much from them especially with the man who is driving the entire affairs. I’m talking about the President who has come to tell us that he is going to bring some changes into the system so they will work accordingly.
“He is the driver and we expect that he will tell them what to do. They should be able to work together and give Nigerians the desired change that they need.
“We need a direction right now without that the country can collapse. We know what have actually transpired in the past so we wouldn’t want them to take that part again because we need some changes.
