Speaking on the development, Shittu who served under former President Muhammadu Buhari from 2015 to 2019 said there is a need for all ministers to show that they are serious about the business of governance.

“I’m happy that President Tinubu appointed several female ministers but my impression, whenever I see them on television, is as if they are going to beauty competitions based on the type of dresses they wear.”

“I think there is a need for us (APC) as a government to show more seriousness in the assignments that we have in this government,” he said.
