Top PDP strategists-turned human rights activist Tunji Moronfoye has said women and young people do not have the competence to serve in public office.
Speaking on his weekly radio programme at Albarka FM on Thursday, Moronfoye criticised Kwara State Governor AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq for nominating women and young people into his cabinet when he could have appointed men and older people to man the various ministries.
“I’m surprised that the Governor is just populating his cabinet with just women and young people. Ministries are supposed to be manned by people who are supposed to consultants in their fields. What experience do women and young people have to do so?”
Moronfoye, who was for many years a member of the Saraki kitchen cabinet, said Kwarans should reject the cabinet picks of the Governor.
But various callers condemned Moronfoye for his discriminatory comments against the women nominees and young people, insisting he was an agent of backwardness and a bitter opposition figure who is just hiding under a radio programme.
One of the callers insisted that Moronfoye’s programmes were being sponsored by Saraki.
“We heard that you have paid for two years for all the radio programmes and what you do basically is just to attack the new government of the people while pretending to work for some faceless NGO. The question is: where did you get the millions of naira to pay for these programmes? Who is sponsoring it and to what end? Who pays for the many cards you share?” a caller blasted him.
Another caller said Moronfoye’s programme is purely meant to spread propaganda, likening him to other Saraki’s allies like Otukoko Ibrahim, Ishowo and handlers of Efura, another radio programme which solely attacks the new administration of AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq.
“The new administration is a baby of the people of Kwara State and we can see the great things it is doing especially in the areas of prudent management of public resources, health delivery, prompt payment of salary, education and road maintenance and so on,” he said.
