The Computer Guild of Nigeria (CGN) on Sunday warned President Muhammadu Buhari to be very careful and selective when choosing the next Communication Minister for his second term political administration.
This was contained in a press release issued and signed by the President of the Computer Guild of Nigeria (CGN), Wole Adedoyin in Lagos on Sunday.
According to the Guild, “The first term tenure of President Muhammadu Buhari had nothing good to write home about in the area of Information Communication and Technology when compared to the impact made during the regime of President Goodluck Jonathan when Dr. Mrs. Mobolaji Johnson headed the Information Communication and Technology Ministry”.
“President Buhari should stop playing politics with the Ministry of Information Communication and Technology, how can a Barrister of law be appointed to head such fragile ministry, has the ministry turned to Law Chamber? We want competent, skilled, proficient, capable and an achiever who has contributed enormously to the development of the country’s Information Communication and Technology (ICT) rather than making another irrelevant professional to head the Ministry.”
“President Buhari should know that Barrister Adebayo Shitu is a failed experiment. Such experiment shouldn’t happen again. The country’s ICT performance is not improving when compared to the foreign and other African communication ministries. Barrister Shitu is a wrong peg in a right hole and we hope this type of mistake committed by President Muhammadu Nuhari wont happened again.”
Computer Guild of Nigeria finally commended other ICT stakeholders in the country for their competency, professional conducts and patient to withstand the current problems facing the country’s communication ministry.
