* Says women, youth, PLWDs to get due regard
Apparently, in response to criticisms about his choice of appointees largely coming from one part of the country, President Bola Tinubu has declared that his appointments shall continue to be in line with provisions of the 1999 Constitution (as amended) with fairness toward all parts of the country.
Tinubu, who disclosed this on Sunday morning in his maiden Independence Day address on the occasion of Nigeria’s 63rd Independence Anniversary, also reiterated that women, youth and the physically challenged shall continue to be given due regard in the appointments.
“We shall continue to make key appointments in line with the provisions of the Constitution and with fairness toward all. Women, Youth and the physically challenged shall continue to be given due regard in these appointments,” the President declared.
He went on to congratulate the National Assembly for its role in the quick take-off of his administration through the performance of its constitutional duties of confirmation of appointments and oversight.
Tinubu also hailed the Judicial arm of government, Organised Labour, and the Nigerian civil society community for their role and advice.
“I similarly congratulate the judiciary as a pillar of democracy and fairness.
“I also thank members of our dynamic civil society organizations and labour unions for their dedication to Nigerian democracy. We may not always agree, but I value your advice and recommendations. You are my brothers and sisters and you have my due respect.
“I promise that I shall remain committed and serve faithfully. I also invite all to join this enterprise to remake our beloved nation into its better self. We can do it. We must do it. We shall do it,” President Tinubu stated.
