PostSubject: Give us a minister, Nsukka people tell Buhari   Thu 14 May 2015, 12:44 am


ASABA—Nsukka indigenes, under the auspices of Asaba, Delta State, chapter of Nsukka Platform, yesterday demanded the appointment of Enugu North senatorial indigene as a minister in the government of President-elect, General Muhammadu Buhari.



The group in a statement by its chairman and secretary, Dr. Pius Ike and Dr. Leo Abonyi respectively, said: “The Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria provides that every state in the Federation is entitled to a ministerial slot in reflection of the federal character principle.

“This being the case, it then becomes imperative that Buhari should endeavour to uphold this constitutional provision in choosing ministers from every state, while insisting on credibility and competence.

In order words, it is expected that the APC government should ensure that every part of a given state in the federation, including Enugu, is given a sense of belonging in ministerial appointments.

“It is expected and only proper, that the president-elect takes cognizance of the fact that in Enugu State, only two of the three senatorial districts in the state have been producing ministers since 1999 when the country returned to democratic rule.

“In fact, it is on record that the Enugu North Senatorial District (Nsukka Cultural Zone) produced its last minister in 1979 during the Second Republic, in the person of Chief D.C. Ugwu, the then Minister of Health. Since the country returned to civilian rule in 1999, the Nsukka people that constitute over 50 per cent of electorate of Enugu State, have not produced a single minister.
