Ebi Beredugo, a chieftain of All Progressives Congress (APC) in Bayelsa, has urged President Muhammadu Buhari to reshuffle his cabinet.
He warned that the president is losing Nigerians’ goodwill and should put technocrats in key positions to achieve his change agenda.
“The president must tinker with his cabinet. He must bring in more technocrats. He must use technocrats to steer the country to the next level”, he told newsmen in Yenogoa.
“I want to say that the politicians, who are surrounding the president, should be dropped as they are not making any positive contribution. It is time the country brings in more technocrats.
“Nigerians will decide whether to bring him for second term, not those politicians who deep down have lost touch even with their grassroots.
“Those politicians can’t deliver the president, we must get this clear because they have disconnected even from their grassroots. They can’t even deliver their states.
“They can only use federal might to come and cause confusion because they cannot actually deliver their states.
“So why not bring in more of experts and technocrats, let Nigerians feel the change in their lives. Let Nigerians begin to enjoy the dividends of good governance.
“Can we actually and sincerely say if an election holds right now, today, can we actually say president Buhari will win that election?
“Does he still have the goodwill of Nigerians to believe in him that we are making progress?
“Are we making progress in the anti-corruption fight, why should we enter 2018 without reshuffling his cabinet?
“Even though we support this government, sometimes we are not impressed with the things that come out from the Presidency; that mix up is avoidable.”
