National Chairman of National Conscience Party (NCP), Dr.  Tanko Yunusa in this interview with Anuli Agwu, speaks on the likely effect the trail of the Senate president, Bukola  Saraki will have on  President Buhari’s ministerial nominees. Excerpts:



Do you think the ongoing trial of the Senate President, Bukola Saraki will have any effect on the ministerial list to be submitted by President Muhammadu Buhari?

Well, it depends on how he, Bukola Saraki is taking the whole issue. But, obviously you know in politics, certain people will not be happy with the way things are going, so definitely, there will be one thing or the other. The magnitude is what we cannot identify, but really it has already affected it right from the beginning, for a very long time, things have not been going well the way it ought to have gone. By now, what we would have been expecting is that the government is up and running, but because of internal issues that is bedeviling the APC itself and the government, it has affected it to a long period of time that we will now have to wait till this period in time before ministers and others can be appointed. So already it has, the internal problem has already affected the government whether you like it or not, but how long is it going to continue, it is another matter entirely, it is my fervent advice that the government should be more interested in the good of the people rather than to be brought down with the internal party wrangling which may in the future affect governance, that’s one thing about politics.

Going by his trial, do you think Saraki should resign?

Well, I for one, I’m not an advocate, if things are being done correctly, if he has done something he thinks he cannot continue, then he can decide on his own. But if we are trying to intimidate each other because of perceived positions, then it becomes another issue entirely. So in my own advice, he will be the one that will know where his strengths are and his weaknesses are for him to really decide on whether to resign or to continue, but it has reached a fever point now that the situation is so heated up that it is affecting different strata of governance including state, so it is not a good situation as it were to be candid.
