President Bola Ahmed Tinubu appoints ministers with their Portfolios 2023 has been presented. This list of ministers has sparked reactions from Nigerians with many insisting that there is no difference, and most of the names there are more of politicians than technocrats. Will these people deliver anything valuable or different from what was delivered before?
Aside from a few of them who have great possibility of working and delivering in their duties, a lot of them won’t deliver. This is just like President Buhari’s ministerial list that was filled with people who didn’t know what to do in their ministeries. In addition, the number of ministers is much, and it will increase the cost of governance.
