President Muhammadu Buhari has expressed surprise
at the raging controversy over his delay in appointing
ministers into his cabinet.
Buhari explained that he was not in any hurry to
choose ministers because he needed to make informed
decisions on the appointments.
The President made the comments on Monday, June
15, 2015, during an interview with AFP on the sidelines
of the African Union (AU) Summit in South Africa.
“I don’t know why people are so anxious to have
ministers, but eventually we will have. I am not in a
hurry to get ministers,” Buhari said.
He also said that audits were currently being carried
out in various government departments — the finance
and petroleum ministries in particular — to try and
establish what situation they were left in by the
previous administration.
“I want to get ministers after at least I have seen this
report, so that I don’t have to appoint a minister today
and sack him next week,” he added.
Meanwhile, Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) chieftain,
Bode George has accused Buhari of waiting for All
Progressives Congress (APC) leader, Bola Tinubu to
choose ministers for him.
