In a recent episode of the podcast “Mic On,” Momodu expressed his dissatisfaction, pointing out that some of Tinubu’s appointed ministers are relatively unknown compared to the past.
Momodu contrasted this with the tenure of former Kaduna State governor, Nasir El-Rufai, who he considered an authentic version of himself when he served as a minister under the PDP.
He emphasized that the key to successful leadership lies in assembling a competent team and listening to their advice, drawing parallels between a leader without advisors and a journalist without corrections – both prone to errors.
He lamented the absence of star-studded personalities in the current cabinet and reminisced about the illustrious figures who were part of Ibrahim Babangida’s cabinet, highlighting the lack of similar recognition for current appointees.
Momodu criticized the lack of due diligence in appointing individuals, using an incident involving a female nominee as an example.
He contrasted the current scenario with the days of Okonjo-Iweala, Ezekwesili, Nuhu Ribadu, and the original version of Nasir El-Rufai when he served as a minister under the PDP.
