A former PDP presidential campaign spokesman, Daniel Bwala, has stated that newly sworn-in ministers who began their tenure issuing threats ‘may lack directions’.
Bwala, who was a guest on Channels Television’s Sunrise Daily, pointed out that certain ministers’ opening words suggested they knew exactly what they were getting into.
“There are others, maybe they have an idea, we don’t know, but their first speech with the Nigerian people is threatening fire and brimstone,” he said.
“To us, we felt that somebody who does that probably does not have a firm grasp of the role he is going to play or an idea of where he is going.
“Sometimes, even if you do, priority also matters. If you have too many issues, you know which one comes first, which one comes second.”
Moments after being sworn in by President Bola Tinubu and two weeks after the Senate’s weeklong ministerial screening was completed, several of the 45 new ministers reported for job for the first time on Monday.
