President Muhammadu Buhari has been advised to give his cabinet a wing to fly by giving youths a larger share than old breed politicians.
Speaking after picking an All Progressives Congress (APC) nomination form for Kukawa State Constituency in Borno State House of Assembly, Comrade Shettima Umar, the Vice Chairman of the National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS) at the weekend in Maiduguri said the President’s cabinet lacks energy that can propel it to greater heights.
He called on the president to give Nigeria youths 65 percent in his cabinet on getting elected in the forthcoming elections.
He said if not for the integrity of the President, Nigerian youths would have sought alternatives.
Umar said: “We believe in the integrity of President Buhari, he has the love and passion for Nigeria. He is equally incorruptible and will stop at nothing to take Nigeria out of the woods.”
He lamented that the present administration of the President was weighed down by already spent politicians who have little to offer.
He said that: “The youths demand and deserve more opportunities in the governance of the nation in order to take the nation out from the woods.”
Umar said going by the voting population, the youths are more and “why not reward them with patronage.”
He said 65 percent of political appointments is the right deal, insisting that President Buhari should put this on the table to garner the support of Nigerian youths.
On his chance of getting elected, he said the people are tired of old politicians and are ready to give chance to youths.
