A group of youths in Plateau State is rooting for the appointment of a chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Senator John Shagaya, as minister in the yet to be nominated federal cabinet of President Muhammadu Buhari.
The Save Plateau Forum said Shagaya, is a reformist and is known for hard stance against corruption, qualities the president is looking for.
“We are confident that if appointed, he would perform credibly well like he did in the Senate, as minister of Interior and all through his military career,” David Pontel, national coordinator of the group told newsmen in Jos, yesterday.
“Shagaya has a large support base from all parts of the state and would run a youth friendly government, carry along all tribes in the state as well as fight corruption in line with President Buhari’s stand on corruption.
“He has proven to be a patriot, decent and experienced in governance. Shagaya is hard working, knowledgeable and committed to whatever duty he is given,” he added.
