Former Minister of Information, Prince Tony Momoh has advised President Muhammadu Buhari on the choice of Ministers for his second term.

According to Momoh, the President must be all inclusive in his appointment of Ministers for his second term.

On what Buhari should prioritise in his second term, Momoh told Sun that the President has roles to play which are spelt out in the constitution, in the Oath of allegiance to the Federal Republic.

He pointed out that the oath of allegiance settles what he (Buhari) would do as president.

He added, “Nigerians should expect Nigerians and not foreigners to be ministers.

“Nigerians should expect Buhari to be more all-inclusive in choosing the people he would work with.

“Nigerians should expect Buhari to know those he is choosing more than those he chose the last time.

“Nigerians should expect Buhari to look and cast his net wider than he did in the first tenure.

“Nigerians expect Buhari to be more of his own man but not that he has not been his own man.

“He should ensure that corruption is tackled more frontally, to ensure that economy is addressed and for security to be more effectively tackled.

“Those are the key areas. And all those people who are running after him to London and everywhere, he will not give them anything, I can assure you.

“He has roles to play which are spelt out in the constitution; in the Oath of allegiance to the federal Republic.

“The Oath of allegiance settles what he would do as president. What is there is in the seventh schedule of the constitution and they would be his priority.”
