Itse Sagay, Chairman, Presidential Advisory Committee Against Corruption (PACAC) has opposed President Muhammadu Buhari’s stance on the issue of restructuring the country, saying Nigeria needs both restructuring and processing to make headway.
The President had in his New Year message to Nigerians said that the country only needs processing and not restructuring.
“I think we need both restructuring and processing. We need processing which is what we are doing now, we also need restructuring. In that respect, I disagree with the president.” Sagay said
Bearing his mind on the board appointments of six dead individuals, he stressed that, “I have already said it. Are you going to send doctors every week to check whether people are alive? If after two years, some people died before appointment, you replace them.
“This is certainly not important, it is absolutely irrelevant. People are trying to look for blame and raise trouble over nothing. That is the point I am making. I referred to it as Lilliputian behaviour where two states go to war over which side of the egg to crack before eating, it is unimportant. When you have six people dead, you appoint others to replace them; it is not a big deal,”
“We don’t have to look for every little thing to waste our time on and be disagreeable about. That is what I am saying. People should learn between what is important and what is not,” Sagay added.
