Human Rights Activist, Aisha Yesufu, has responded to a journalist who said Labour Party (LP) supporters should be pleased with the ministerial nomination of Professor Tahir Mamman, a vice chancellor at the University of LP vice presidential candidate, Datti Baba-Ahmed.
We reported that Mamman was on the new ministerial list released by President Bola Tinubu on Wednesday.
The Nigerian journalist, identified as Gimba Kakande, shared a post on Twitter about the two ministerial nominees from Datti’s University, predicting that Mamman might head the Ministry of Education.
He added that Bosun Tijani may also lead the Ministry of Science & Technology or the Ministry of Communications and Digital Economy.
He wrote: “Baze University’s Tahir Mamman and CcHUB’s Bosun Tijani stand out on this second #ministeriallist. They are exceptional brains in education administration and digital tech development, respectively, based on their antecedents.
“My prediction? Mamman would head the Ministry of Education, and Bosun might lead either the Ministry of Science & Technology or the Ministry of Communications and Digital Economy.
“On a lighter note, Obidients should be pleased that the Vice Chancellor of their vice-presidential candidate’s school has been offered a seat at the table”
Reacting to this, Aisha affirmed that Mamman and Bosun are assets to Nigeria and any government, but the issue isn’t about sitting at the table.
According to her, the main issue is about the integrity of the process and the rule of law.
She wrote: “My brother. These are wonderful people that are great assets to Nigeria and any government that has them definitely has assets but you see, the issue is not about seat at the table. The issue is about the integrity of a process and the rule of law. Otherwise, how can we have the moral justification to question anyone who subvert a system to get whatever result they want?”
