President Muhammadu Buhari

Laggi noted that the country is suffering from lack of essential services, considering the fact that without the ministers, nothing happens.

“It’s a huge cost, this is a country of over 200 million people, what we are doing is having a huge machine and it’s not being moved. It takes more than 37 ministers to get this country working.

“This is a cost to the country and unfortunately, in Nigeria, nobody values time, so we can just stay by and as long as the President gets what he wants in office, the country can be punished from lack of services that are supposed to have been provided by the government and that can’t be done through one man.

“Everybody knows that it is FEC that approves things to happen. All civil servants know that right now, without ministers, there is nothing going on in this country.”
