A former presidential aspirant of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Nicolas Felix, has hinted at those who will make the cabinet of President-elect Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu.
With the new law, Tinubu would have to name his cabinet within two months after taking the oath of office on May 29.
However, Felix believes Tinubu rewards loyalty and hard work and would not only pick members of his party but also include talented, experienced and capable people in his cabinet.
Speaking on those that would make the cabinet of Tinubu, Felix said on Arise Television’s morning show on Tuesday, “Asiwaju is a man that rewards loyalty, he rewards hard work, there are also Nigerians out there who are not members of our party who are also talented and experienced and capable.
“He is going to also look beyond his APC and start picking those who are out there. But I am also very sure as he has stretched his hands of fellowship to say I want to build a government of national unity, If you are in PDP, If you are in Labour Party, you are in other parties, we are all Nigerians.
“When a president is elected, what is expected of every patriotic Nigerian is to join hands with the President to work together, except you are just here for your selfish interest. If you really want the growth of Nigeria, you want Nigeria to be better. Whatever you have to offer, you have to present yourself for service.
“He has already stretched his hands of fellowship. It is up to them to accept it and join him. I am sure he is not going to be running after people, he has already said come, let’s brainstorm. As many are willing to go to Asiwaju’s door, the President-elect for them to join hands together.
“So it is not totally up to him now. It is up to our opponent, those who are in other parties, to embrace him as he has already done. We are expecting that Asiwaju is going to have a great cabinet and his administration is going to cause things to work again.”
