THE PUNCH learnt on Tuesday that indication that Buhari was keeping matters relating to the appointment close to his chest emerged during a meeting he held with state governors at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.

He said the governor had asked the President when the names of ministerial nominees would be sent to the Senate for screening.
He said Buhari however refused to answer the question posed by the governor.
This, he explained, was an indication that the President did not want to talk on the matter.
“During the meeting today, a governor asked the President what is delaying the list of his ministerial list.
“The President did not answer that question. That, to me, means that he is keeping details to his chest,” the source said.
