The President of the Academic Staff Union of Universities, Prof. Biodun Ogunyemi, has said Buhari’s list lacked innovation, while noting that the President did not attach portfolios to the names of the nominees.
Ogunyemi stated, “The other observation is that there isn’t much innovation on the list. People are talking of a generation change and injecting fresh blood or a mixture of the old and the new. But the new names on the list are people who have been in the political circle for some time. I am sure the younger generation would have been looking out for a list that would have accommodated their interest and representation.”
