Chieftain of the Labour Party (LP), Kenneth Okonkwo, has condemned President Bola Ahmed Tinubu, for assigning portfolios of minister-designates, barely 24 hours to the swearing-in.
HotNewsinNaija earlier reported that President Tinubu on Sunday approved the redeployment of Engr. Abubakar Momoh from the Federal Ministry of Youth to the Federal Ministry of Niger Delta Development and also directed all minor amendments to ministry nomenclature and portfolio allocation.
Ajuri Ngelale, the special adviser to the president, in a newly released statement, noted that the Federal Ministry of Youth is to be re-assigned to a Minister-Designate soon.
The statement also noted that Ministers-Designate allocated to the Federal Ministries of Transportation, Interior, and Marine & Blue Economy have been reshuffled as follows:
(A) H.E. Adegboyega Oyetola is redeployed as the Honourable Minister of Marine & Blue Economy.
(B) Hon. Bunmi Tunji-Ojo is redeployed as the Honourable Minister of Interior.
(C) Hon. Sa’idu Alkali is redeployed as the Honourable Minister of Transportation.
Reacting to this, Kenneth Okonkwo, in a post shared on his Twitter handle, described President Tinubu’s administration as a joke, adding that, reshuffling a cabinet within three days of assigning portfolios, even before swearing-in, was nothing but a clear sign of confusion and unpreparedness.
In his tweeted, “This government is a joke. Reshuffling a cabinet formed in 77 days, instead of 60, within 72 hours of assigning portfolios, and even before swearing in is a clear sign of confusion and unpreparedness. This is not what Nigeria needs now. May God help us”
