THE All Progressives Congress (APC) has assured that Nigerians that President Muhammadu Buhari’s ministerial list will be released soon.

The APC National Publicity Secretary, Lai Mohammed, who stated this while addressing journalists at the 9th annual Ramadan lecture in Oro, Kwara State, on Thursday July 2, 2015, acknowledged that the Buhari administration had been slow so far, attributing the problem to the challenges of transferring governance from one political party to the another.

He said: “The concern of Nigerians over the delay in the release of ministerial appointments is genuine. But, the fact is that this is the first time in the history of Nigeria that the opposition party will take over government from the ruling party.

“Our plan was to interface and interact with the outgoing government, but it didn’t just work out. So, the party set up transition committee, which later presented 800 pages handover documents to Mr. President.

“So, in this kind of situation we found ourselves, we have to be thorough in making appointments because Nigerians’ expectations are very high and it’s understandable.

“So, in a couple of days, the ministerial cabinet list would be made available and it would be a thing of the past.

“We might be slow, but in reality, when we make the right appointments, we will make up for all the shortcoming Nigerians have been complaining about.”

Mohammed also reacted to the Peoples Democratic Party’s (PDP’s) appraisal of the Buhari government at 30 days, describing the opposition party as a joker.

“The PDP is just revelling in its new found role of opposition, they are entertaining themselves and Nigerians,” he stressed.
