The President has the prerogative for appointments and he has severally said he would only work with individuals he can vouch for and the minister wholly agrees with this. The president is serious about power reforms and has said it several times. Besides, Nigerians are right now more concerned about what anyone can deliver in this bid. Political appointments are not based on civil service levels. What many care about right now is what the new REA boss has to offer and we have confidence in the president’s decision. The former leadership of the REA wasn’t helping to solve the darkness crisis of the country as many reports have shown. We must therefore support the president in his effort to sanitise the sector.
