'Ministerial nominees are poster boys of corruption' - Afenifere spokesman

The spokesman of Afenifere has also condemned the ministerial list released by the Senate.

Yinka Odumakin faults Buhari's ministerial nominees

Political activist and National Publicity Secretary of the Yoruba socio-political organization, Afenifere, Yinka Odumakin, has reacted to the ministerial list nominees released by the Senate President Bukola Saraki, calling them 'poster boys of corruption'. and people who do not have anything to offer Nigerians as they are not people with people with integrity.

The Senate, had, on Tuesday, released the names sent to them by President Muhammadu Buhari but like most Nigerians, the nominees leave a lot to be desired.

Odumakin who is not happy with the nominees, said they are just recycled politicians and not a breathe of fresh air as promised by the President.

“Nearly everybody on that list has been involved one way of the other, at one level or the other since 1999. Quite a few of them have serious allegations against them.

“In fact, some of them are poster boys of corruption. We hope that those who would do the screening will do a thorough screening. If we are fighting corruption on one hand, then those who have been portrayed to be corrupt should not be promoted to higher responsibility.

There are some who have governed at the state level and have been alleged to be corrupt. So, to jump that and move to become ministerial leaders, rubbishes the whole concept of our fight against corruption,” Odumakin stated.
