Name your ministers without delay, replace Emefiele – Agbakoba urges Tinubu

A Senior Advocate of Nigeria, Olisa Agbakoba has urged President Bola Tinubu to appoint his cabinet without wasting time.

Agbakoba said Tinubu should appoint good people into his cabinet.

He suggested the replacement of the Central Bank of Nigeria, CBN, Governor, Godwin Emefiele, with either Mustafa Chike-Obi, the Chairman of Fidelity Bank Nigeria or Yemi Cardoso who is the Chairman of the Board of Directors of Citibank Nigeria.

He spoke during an interview with Arise Television.

Agbakoba said: “We need to talk about a limited government. The government is too big, he needs to have good people.

“The timeline for an appointment is absolutely today. Today, I will think he should be making critical appointments, I will just give a couple of names: Mustafa Chike-Obi or Dr. Yemi Cardoso.”

He also charged Tinubu to unbundle the Transport Ministry into four sub-ministries.

Agbakoba said the new Transport Ministry should comprise rail, road, shipping, and air.

“Works should seize to be a ministry and they should go onto transport ministry.

“The challenge for Tinubu will be to name at least four or five critical ministers, because there is no time to waste,” he said.
