Controversial Kogi Senator, Dino Melaye has condemned President Buhari’s appointments.

Melaye told Daily Post that the President has been appointing unqualified people into office.

He said this while speaking at the 2017 Nigeria Democracy Day Lecture put together by the Save Democracy Group Africa (SDG-Africa) in Abuja.

Melaye also said that Buhari’s wrong appointments are the reason there has not been any visible progress in the country for two years.

The Senator said “Democracy is defined as a government of the people, by the people and for the people but what we had in the time of Jonathan was greedocracy, which is the government of the greedy, by the greedy and for the greedy.

“Today, we have criminocracy-a government of the criminals, by the criminals and for the criminals.

“Wrong appointment led to the emergence of the former (suspended) Secretary to the Government of the Federation, SGF who became a grasscutter.

“When you appoint a man who has no experience in civil administration as SGF, he is bound to misbehave.”

After over two months of delay, the Nigerian Senate confirmed 15 Resident Electoral Commissioners (RECs) of the Independent Electoral Commission (INEC) on Thursday, June 1, 2017.
