Former Kaduna Central Senator, Shehu Sani has issued a warning to President Bola Tinubu.
He warned him against repeating the mistake of his predecessor, former President Muhammadu Buhari in the area of appointments.
Sani said, unlike Buhari, Tinubu’s appointments should be based on competence.
Featuring on Channels Television’s Sunday Politics, the former lawmaker accused Buhari of nepotism while in office.
Stressing that nepotism was at its peak, Sani wondered why some Ministers were in office for eight years under Buhari.
According to Sani: “I will advise President Tinubu to be careful not to make the mistakes of President Buhari, and I believe he is experienced to understand this.

“Under President Buhari, you have ministers that were appointed into office for the whole of eight years; they were with him for the first tenure and the second tenure, and there was no cabinet reshuffle, no removal.

“Even if there was a removal, it takes three to four months to replace a minister. That was the way the country was governed.

“Under Buhari, we have seen nepotism at its peak where people were appointed into office and left there even if they did nothing.

“Service chiefs were retained in office despite their failures, and by retaining them, you destroyed the careers of those behind them. For many years, many officers were retired to appoint one person.”
