A former Kaduna Central Senator, Shehu Sani, has said the new administration of President Bola Tinubu has dashed the hope of Nigerian youths while setting up his cabinet.
Sani stated this in a tweet on his verified Twitter handle on Saturday.
According to him, many Nigerian youths had expected that they would dominate the cabinet of the new president.
This hope, Sani explained, had been dashed by the president due to his decision to appease the older ones.
Sani is reacting to the ministerial lists sent to the senate by Tinubu, which comprised names of many known old politicians.
A lot of Nigerians have criticised the list for containing names of former political office holders, instead of fresh young heads.
Reacting, Sani maintained that the hope of the youths was dashed because Tinubu wanted to satisfied those he tagged “entitled old brigades”.
“The hope of the youths to dominate the cabinet has been dashed by the exigences of appeasing the entitled old brigades,” Shehu Sani tweeted.
