Aliyu Audu, a chieftain of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) has said that 45 ministers appointed by President Bola Tinubu are not enough to run the administration.
Audu, who was a member of the Media Strategy Subcommittee of the APC Presidential Transition Council, said this on Wednesday while speaking on Channels TV Sunrise Daily programme.
However, he did not specify the exact number of ministers that will be enough for President Tinubu-led Nigerian government.
PUNCH quoted Audu as saying, “I don’t think 45 is even enough. I don’t think 48 is enough. We have a population of over 200 million. We are in a crisis,” he said, noting that during Tinubu’s tenure as the governor of Lagos State, it was widely recognised that bringing governance closer to the people necessitated the establishment of additional local governments.
He said that “A lot of people thought he was taking it too far but look at how Lagos has moved in 24 years and how every other state has moved in 24 years.
“I’m not talking about potential. I’m not talking about what it used to be before but I’m talking about sheer growth between then and now.”
