Buhari’s Ministerial List Will Be Released In A Few Days – Lai Mohammed
The National Publicity Secretary of the Ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) Lai Mohammed has revealed that the ministerial list of President Muhammadu Buhari would be released in a few days.
speaking with journalists in Oro,in Ifelodun local government area of kwara state on Thursday at his annual 9th Ramadan lecture, Mohammed commended Nigerians for their patience and perseverance over the delay in the appointments of ministers,saying that the list would be released in few days.
He admitted that the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari would have fared better had the ministerial appointments been made before now.
Mohammed however explained that the delay was basically caused by the transference ?of government from one political party to the other.
He recalled that? when transition in government took place within the then ruling party, Peoples Democratic Party(PDP) ministerial appointments were usually made two weeks after inauguration.
?According to him, “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 party set up transition committee which later presented 800 pages hand over documents to mister 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”
Continuing, he said “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”.
He also decried the comment of the opposition PDP on the performance rate of President Buhari in 30 days in office saying, “the PDP is just revelling in its new found roles of opposition, they are entertaining themselves and Nigerians”
The APC. Spokesman who expressed the determination of the ruling party to stamp out corruption in order to fulfil it’s campaign promises to Nigerians ,further noted that since President Muhammadu Buhari assumed office Nigerians all over the world are been gradually respected because of the integrity of the president.
