Afenifere condemns Buhari’s style of governance

Akure—AFENIFERE, a socio-political group weekend condemned President Muhammadu Buhari’s style  of administration saying he is behaving like a dictator.

The group’s  Chairman, Pa Reuben Fasoranti said this in Akure while assessing the President’s  actions so far.
“President Buhari is running a one-man show. Let him appoint his cabinet and start serious business,’’ he said.
Fasoranti also added that it will be a disaster if the report of the National Confab organised by the immediate past administration is dumped by the president.
According to him; ”I think the President should sit down and have a package. What people are saying is very correct that he is just picking people here and there.

“He seems not to have settled down to governance yet and  time is flying.
“Let him constitute the cabinet and start working. As it is now, Buhari is still behaving like a military dictator. Just picking on people, he should sit down to work. He is running a one man show now.
Speaking on the report of the National Conference, the Afenifere boss said the group will continue to engage the administration on the implementation of the report for the betterment of the country.
On the possibility of dumping the report, he said; “We will wait until then, because at that time we will still want to express our opinion. When we are convinced, we will say it.
“The reason we supported Jonathan of course was because he agreed to carry out the decisions of the National Conference. The present government is not working towards that and when the time comes, we shall speak.’’
Speaking on Ooni, he said; ‘’His death is a sad loss, very heavy loss. Ooni was a quintessential monarch ,very humble, friendly and broad minded. He towered above other monarchs.”
“The way he dresses, the way he speaks with confidence. I have never seen him frown. He was always relaxed, always approached problems with ease and understanding. I think the other monarch accepted him as a superior king.’’

Title-crazy civil servants to go

Title-crazy civil servants are scared of being sacked, The Nation learnt at the weekend. Officials, who violated the Public Service Rule banning titles until after retirement, may be retired in the coming civil service reforms.
Only those whose titles were traditionally inherited may be spared but their postings and conduct will be put under watch.
According to sources, the government is disturbed that most of the top civil servants with honorary awards actually bought them at high fees.
The affected civil servants violated the rules which grants them the right to such honors only after retirement.
Besides committing the resources of Ministries, Departments and Agencies (MDAS) to such awards, most of the civil servants used the window to “grant favour to groups, persons, and communities in violation of their oath of office.”
