Ministerial Nomination: Buhari Ask APC Governors To Steer Clear
President-Elect, General Muhammadu Buhari has asked governors elected on the platform on the All Progressives Congress to steer clear of efforts to nominate the members of his cabinet.
Rather than the norm practiced by the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), where governors submit list of ministerial nominees to the president, Buhari is contemplating a system operated in the second republic during the era of National Party of Nigeria, NPN, where appointment of ministers was done by the national secretariat of the party
A source at the National Headquarters of the APC yesterday said that Buhari had directed the leadership of the party to pass the message of non interference to the governors.
According to the source, Buhari could not find any justification for the state governors to choose Ministers for him after they had chosen their own commissioners without unnecessary interferences from the federal government.
But Buhari reportedly asked them to pay salaries having collected their allocation.
