Don’t repeat Buhari’s nepotism with your appointment – Sani Shehu tells Pres. Tinubu

Senator Shehu Sani, the Former Nigerian lawmaker, has urged President Bola Tinubu to prioritise competence over tribe when making appointments into government.

“I will advise President Tinubu to be careful not to make the mistakes of President Buhari, and I believe he is experienced to understand this,” Sani said to Channels TV on Sunday, June 30.

“Under President Buhari, you have ministers that were appointed into office for the whole of eight years; they were with him for the first tenure and the second tenure, and there was no cabinet reshuffle, no removal. Even if there was a removal, it takes three to four months to replace a minister. That was the way the country was governed.

“Under Buhari, we have seen nepotism at its peak where people were appointed into office and left there even if they did nothing.

“Service chiefs were retained in office despite their failures, and by retaining them, you destroyed the careers of those behind them. For many years, many officers were retired to appoint one person.”
