A socio-political support group Ijaw Youths for Bola Ahmed Tinubu (Ijaw Youths for BAT), has congratulated the newly appointed 45 Ministers of the Federal Republic of Nigeria on their inauguration by President Bola Ahmed Tinubu.
The group, in a press statement signed by the duo of the National Coordinator, Comr. Daniel Ezonfade Okiringo, and National Secretary, Comr. Promise D. Emmanuel, described the newly sworn-in Ministers and members of the Federal Executive Council (FEC) as round pegs in round holes owing to their track records of performance in the different offices they previously held.
While vouching for the competence of the ministers, the support group expressed confidence that the FEC members will turn the tides around for the peace, well-being, and development of the country in line with the ‘Renewed Hope’ agenda of President Tinubu.
The Ijaw Youths for BAT charged the new ministers to put in their best in their various ministries to meet the yearnings of party members and the country as a whole, saying the expectations of the people from the government of President Tinubu were high.
“Therefore, it requires every appointee of government at the federal level to be up and doing with innovative ideas to move the country forward.
“We convey our congratulations and express joy over your appointments and successful swearing-in by His Excellency, President Bola Ahmed Tinubu, GCFR. We thank Mr. President for putting up a team of competent, trusted, and patriotic men and women of our dear nation to run the government with him.
