...Obi also urged the president to emulate President Ramaphosa of South Africa who announced his cabinet members three days after taking the oath of office
The vice-presidential candidate of the Democratic Party (PDP) in the general election, Peter Obi, has claimed that leaders who are serious do not waste time to form their cabinets, The Cable reports. The PDP vice-presidential candidate who disclosed this to journalists in Lagos urged President Muhammadu Buhari to unveil his team as soon as possible.
He urged President Buhari to emulate President Cyril Ramaphosa of South Africa, who announced his cabinet members three days after taking the oath of office. “These are serious leaders who are ready to move their countries forward.
Imagine forming their cabinets within one week of being sworn in,” he said. “Can you compare them with what is happening here in our country? I have always said it that for our country to move forward, it must change its current compass.” Obi who said the country is in a total mess because of leadership failure alleged that the Buhari administration is plunging Nigeria into a debt of over 11 trillion.
“What we have today in Nigeria is the cumulative effect of leadership failures. A leader must know his/her destination.
Painfully, we have plenty bad role models masquerading as leaders,” he said. “Nigeria is in total mess because of too much borrowing caused by leadership failures. Our situation will get worse if we do not solve these problems urgently. There is serious crisis in Nigeria because politics is now business and transactions. In fact, we have reduced our lives to transactions in Nigeria. Going further, Obi added that borrowed funds have no effect on the country.
