Elder statesman and a former Lagos State Police Commissioner, Alhaji Abubakar Tsav, has described Nigeria as a sick nation.
He said the only way forward was for President Muhammadu Buhari to quickly reshuffle his cabinet with a view to injecting new and active blood into the system.
Tsav, who is currently the Commissioner, Public Complaints Commission in charge of Benue State, said there were a number of hardworking personalities who were passionate about the development of the country and would perform well if appointed to man ministries and parastatals.
Speaking, the outspoken former police boss said, “People are complaining that many who fought for him and those who campaigned for him have not been appointed into offices.
“You can also see that certain allegations are being made against some of his very close aides about corruption and the rest of them and this is very worrisome.
“So, if he had brought the right people to work with him, maybe he would have achieved better. Now, the situation in which we are is that he himself does not seem to trust any of his aides and one cannot succeed in such a situation.
“And the success of any leader in any given environment depends on the people surrounding him.
“If you bring people of questionable character around you, you cannot achieve anything because it is like you are building and they are destroying. And the thing is you have been encircled by these people and you have no contact with people outside to tell you exactly what is happening. And if anybody comes to see you, such a person must go through them.
“And if they like, they can block such people from seeing you. This is the problem we have.
“If I were in position, I would employ anybody from any part of the country and regardless of which area he comes from. Because this country is sick and we really need to do something to save it from total collapse.”
