PRESS RELEASE
RIGHTS GROUP URGES TINUBU, UMO ENO TO APPOINT FRESH HANDS INTO GOVERNMENT

The Center for Human Rights and Accountability Network (CHRAN) has commended President Bola Tinubu for hitting the ground running by making policies and programmes that will impact positively on the economic fortune of Nigeria.

CHRAN in a Press Release signed by its Director, Otuekong Franklyn Isong and Deputy Director, Public Affairs, Comrade Vincent Aluu and made available to newsmen in Uyo, commended President Tinubu for the dissolution of the Federal Boards and Agencies except those established by 153 of the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, 1999 (as amended).

CHRAN advised President Bola Tinubu against recycling individuals that have been in the corridors of government but, to make fresh appointments into the various Ministries, Departments and Agencies of government from persons across the federation, adding that appointment of fresh hands will allow for fresh ideas, new strategies, zeal and vigour that will better drive the governance process of the country.

The group noted that only those with the right professionalism, character, competence, capacity and track record should be appointed to man the various positions, irrespective of political party affiliation, ethnicity or religion.

On the replacement of all the Service Chiefs with new ones by the President, CHRAN is of the view that it will reposition and reinvigorate the security architecture of the country for efficiency.

At the State level, CHRAN commended the Governor of Akwa Ibom State, Pastor Umo Bassey Eno, for hitting the ground running by inspecting ongoing projects embarked upon by his predecessor and for taking deliberate actions that will further promote peace, unity and growth of the State under his watch.

CHRAN stated that Governor Eno’s visit to President Tinubu and Senate President, Senator Godswill Akpabio was a step in the right direction.

CHRAN called on Governor Umo Eno to also dissolve all State Boards of the various MDAs and to appoint fresh hands into them, asserting that; “these MDAs are the engine room of government and it takes strong institutions managed by men of great intellect and expertise for government policies to be formulated, intepreted, implemented and evaluated for better results.”

CHRAN advised the Governor to beware of sycophants and mediocres while putting together his team in order to succeed in the delivery of good governance to Akwa Ibom people.
