I Have so many Reservations for Many of President Tinubu’s ministers. Daniel Bwala. Daniel Bwala, an adviser to the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) presidential candidate for 2023, Atiku Abubakar, says he has reservations about several of the ministers selected by President Bola Tinubu.
President Tinubu, gave 45 portfolios to ministers-designate on Wednesday, who would be inaugurated on Monday.
Bwala remarked on Channels TV’s Politics Today on Thursday night that some of the roles the President has given to his ministers are unsuitable.
The PDP chieftain asserted that some of the portfolios assigned indicated that square pegs were put in round holes, adding that there are people who are not competent enough to be on the list.
Bwala also faulted the appointments of Hannatu Musawa as the Minister of Culture and former Governor of Zamfara, Bello Matawalle, as the Minister of State for Defence.
In his statement, He said, “I have reservations about so many of Tinubu’s ministers. I will caption my reservation as square pegs in round holes and the challenge of Renewed Hope. Some people are not competent enough, in my view, to be on the list.
“There are people who are competent but their portfolios are mismatched. Hannatu, for example, is made the minister of culture while her counterpart, Betta Edu is made minister of humanitarians.
“You have a president who believes he needs to invade Niger, probably to extend that to Mali and Burkina Faso. The president as the chairman of ECOWAS is committed to fighting. There may be humanitarian crises around the borders. That is exactly where she is from. She is very familiar with humanitarian issues. Hannatu would have fit into humanitarian.
“Secondly, the minister of state defense was a former governor who all through the four years his rating in fighting insecurity is 5 over 100. And now you made him minister of state to administer what?”
