Group asks Buhari to reflect national unity in appointments

LAGOS— A civil society organisation, Vanguard for Transparent Leadership and Democracy,  VATLAD, has called on President Muhammadu Buhari to urgently reconstitute the Federal Executive Council and Boards of agencies and parastatals to reflect government of national unity.

National President of VATLAD, Mr Igbini Emmanuel, in a statement, said: “Having critically examined the causes of the economic and socio-political crises ravaging our nation, Nigeria, since the enthronment of democratic system after Inpendence in 1960, we have come to the conclusion that the first and major step to resolving and preventing these crises is for our political leaders to, as deliberate policy, embrace constitution of executive councils (cabinets) of national unity at federal, state and local government level.

“Members must be  men and women of proven records of patriotism, integrity and competence from all political parties, ethnicity, religions and professions. Such form of government  is lawful and in line with the aim and objective of the 1999 Nigerian Constitution as amended.”
