Ministerial List: Don’t rush me, give me more time-Buhari

Amidst agitations that President Muhammadu Buhari may take another six months to announce his next level agenda cabinet, the president has asked for more time to choose his personal acquaintances. 

Buhari requested members of the National Assembly to give him more time to compile the names of those who will serve as Ministers in his yet-to-be-formed cabinet.

President Buhari was declared winner of the February 23, 2019 presidential few days after the election and sworn-into office for a second term on May 29th but yet to announce those who will be working with him as minsiter and special advisers.

The Senate President, Ahmed Lawan, Wednesday, had assured that the president will send the list of nominees for Ministerial position to the senate for screening and confirmation before the week runs out. Read here. Lawan has, however, denied saying that he was misquoted.

Speaking to the lawmakers during a dinner in the state House Abuja, Thursday, Buhari called for more time to compile the list as he wants to work with only people he knows personally. 

The President revealed that in 2015, he was handed a list by his party for those that will serve as Ministers in his government but this time around, he wants to pick them by himself. He acknowledged that he is under immense pressure to release his ministerial list.

 “Many at this dinner meeting are saying they want to see the list of the proposed cabinet so that they can go on leave peacefully. I’m very much aware about it; I’m under tremendous pressure on it.

“But the last cabinet which I headed, most of them, the majority of them I didn’t know them. I had to accept the names and recommendations from the party and other individuals.  I worked with them for three and half years at least – meeting twice or two weeks in a month. So, I know them.

“But, this time round, I’m going to be quiet me,  me in the sense that I will pick people I personally know.” he said
