‘PMB Will Not Appoint Failed Politicians Into New Cabinet’



Communications Minister, Barr Adebayo Shittu, yesterday, disclosed that President Muhammadu Buhari would not reappoint “failed politicians” into his cabinet.

Shittu expressed optimism that the president would reappoint him into the new cabinet that would be formed soon.

“President Muhammadu Buhari, would reappoint me into the new cabinet that would be formed soon. The president would not appoint “failed politicians.”

Speaking on a radio programme in Ibadan, yesterday, he said himself and members of the Unity Forum in the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Oyo State, would retrieve the party from predators.

He said the process to rebuild the party in the state would start soon, after the party’s defeat in the March 9, governorship and House of Assembly elections.

The minister accused Governor Abiola Ajimobi of foisting the current executives of the party in the state and the people, adding that they were challenging the composition of the party executives.

“Let me recall, during the congresses in Oyo State, we had two congresses; two factions of our party held parallel congresses.

“The governor’s faction and Unity Forum faction, which has members four times that of the governor’s faction. Our party leaders at the national level, by force, accepted those who are not qualified as party executives.

“Eventually, what happened started from there. We are in court to know the legally recognised executives of the party. The Unity Forum will certainly ensure that justice is done in the area of party congresses.

“That is what we are challenging, the emergence of the current executives.

They have to be true to themselves but for Ajimobi, they will not be there.


Speaking about the Unity Forum members who had left the party for other political parties, the minister stated the forum was not about an individual, noting that it was about a movement of the generality of APC members in the state.
