A Peoples Democratic Party lawmaker representing Delta north senatorial district in the national assembly, Peter Nwaoboshi, is unimpressed with the ministerial nominees of President Muhammadu Buhari.
Speaking with Channels Television after Senate President Bukola Saraki, announced the names on the list at plenary, Nwaoboshi said people were expecting Buhari to appoint saints as ministers.
“We have taken so long to have ministers and when the list came out, we found nothing special. These are names known to Nigerians.”
“We have seen the names. I don’t know what to say because we were expecting saints.” He added that the era of according special privilege to former senators was over, saying Nigerians were expecting a lot from the screening.
“It’s not going to be practice as usual for our former colleagues. When we start with the list, Nigerians will know where we are going to.
“There is not going to be ‘take a bow and go’. We will take time to look at them and we would have a good screening. We are going to do a thorough job.”
