REPORT: Buhari’s Ministerial List Out Wednesday

Posted: Sep 27, 2015 at 6:05 pm   /   by   /   comments (1)


The much-awaited list of President Muhammadu Buhari’s ministerial nominees will be released on Wednesday, the last day of the month of September.

Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Mr. Femi Adesina, disclosed this at the weekend in New York, describing Buhari as a man of his word. He said Nigerians would not be disappointed as September, the date given for the announcement of members of his cabinet, remains sacrosanct.

This was as Buhari’s party, All Progressives Congress, expressed its confidence that the president would not disappointment the citizens with regard to the appointment of ministers and governance, generally. APC National Chairman John Odigie-Oyegun told THISDAY yesterday by telephone that Buhari meant well for the country and he will do everything humanly possible to ensure good governance. THISDAY also learnt that the president was under intense pressure to relax his tough standards for qualifying persons for positions in his planned cabinet to avoid alienating many members of his party.

Shehu said, “The president had said it twice that he would submit his ministerial list to the National Assembly in September. As you can see, that position has not changed.”

The presidential aide, who spoke from New York where Buhari was attending the summit of the United Nations General Assembly, advised Nigerians to wait till the end of September. Odigie-oyegun also urged Nigerians to continue to support the APC administration, saying the party would not shirk its responsibility to the people.

On APC’s position on the release of the ministerial nominees’ names this month, Odigie-Oyegun said, “There is no cause for alarm. We are confident the president will keep his promise. He will not disappoint Nigerians on his pledge to provide good governance for the enhancement of the nation.”
