You Won’t Wait Too Long For Buhari’s Cabinet, Adesina Assures Nigerians
The Presidency on Monday assured Nigerians that they won’t have to wait longer than necessary for President Muhammadu Buhari to assemble his next level cabinet.
Disclosing this was Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity Femi Adesina, noting that Buhari will announce his cabinet when the time comes.
The president’s second term is almost clocking a month following his oath of office on May 29th.
Many are of the opinion that it might take the President as long as Six months again to name his Ministers after using such time frame during his first term in office
But while speaking in a chat with The Interview, Adesina dismissed such insinuation, saying that “the circumstances are not the same”, adding that it would not take as long as it did in 2015.
“Nigerians will not have to wait a day longer than necessary before they have a cabinet,” Adesina said.
“And as the president himself has said, the process won’t take as long as it did in 2015, because the circumstances are not the same.”
He has since made just three appointments– Mele Kyari as the group managing director (GMD) of the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) and renewal of Ahmed Idris’s appointment as the accountant-general of the federation and renewing the appointment of Godwin Emefiele, governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN)
