One of the leading opposition political party, the Action Democratic Party (ADP) has demanded for explanation on why the new cabinet is not inclusive of opposition political parties as earlier promised by President Muhammadu Buhari.
The party condemned the syndrome of winner takes it all of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).
Making comments on the newly inaugurated cabinet through a statement signed personally by the National Chairman of ADP, Engr. Yusuf Sani, the opposition party, while congratulating President Buhari for the successful completion of his last major constitutional engagement in the political and socioeconomic development of Nigeria, wished the new cabinet members “Godspeed in the arduous task of fighting the elusive corruption, intractable insecurity and the moribund economy.
“The new cabinet is a mixed grill and bankable but Nigerians are disappointed that Mr. President did not live up to his promise of all inclusiveness as no member of the opposition parties are in the cabinet. Nigerians had hoped that the syndrome of winner takes all will have been be jettisoned for the advancement of democracy, unity and progress of Nigeria.
“The ADP is particularly stunned by the inexplainable circumstance that led to the unwholesome appearance of Mrs Winifred Oyo – Ita currently facing EFCC probe over a N3 Billion contract scam at such a solemn and supposedly induction of a new team expected to exhibit morality and uprightness in the conduct of their new assignments.”
