Shehu Sani, a former senator representing Kaduna Central, has expressed his support for the appointment of Imam Ibrahim Kashim Imam as the board chairman of the Federal Roads Maintenance Agency (FERMA).
Despite the mixed reactions from Nigerians on social media, Sani believes that appointing a 24-year-old is acceptable, especially considering the current state of Federal roads in the country.
Many Nigerians have criticized the appointment, questioning the young age and experience of the appointee.
However, Sani argues that age should not be a factor in determining who is fit for a particular position, especially if they possess the necessary skills and qualifications.
In his statement, Sani encourages young people to rally around their own and support their efforts to contribute to the development of the country, especially in leadership positions.
“There is nothing wrong with appointing a 24 year old to head FERMA.”
“Just look at the state of Federal roads in the country and ask yourself if those old people appointed over the years merited the position they held.Young people should learn to rally round their own.”
President Bola Ahmed Tinubu had on Friday appointed the 24-year-old first-class graduate of Mechanical Engineering from Brighton University
