Buhari Begs NASS For More Time To Compile Ministerial List,Says He Wants To Pick People He Knows Personally

PRESIDENT Muhammadu Buhari on Thursday night pleaded with the leadership of the National Assembly to give him more time for him to compile list of ministerial nominees.

President Buhari also told the presiding and principal officers of the nation’s federal legislative arm of government that he was under pressure to nominate members of his cabinet.

This is as the Senate President, Ahmad Lawan has denied that he said that the presidency promised to send the ministerial list to the Red Chamber this week.

A source at the dinner hosted by the President for the leadership of the National Assembly mid-wife by the Senior Special Assistant to the President on National Assembly Matters, Senator Ita Enang at the Presidential Villa hinted that the President at the dinner requested that he should be given some time for him to come up with the ministerial nominees.

According to the Source who spoke on the condition of anonymity, “Mr. President said we should give him more time for him to compile the list of ministerial nominees.”

Buhari was said to have noted that most of the ministers he appointed in his first tenure were not known to him, adding that this time around, he wanted to appoint those he knows, have confidence in and that have the capacity to deliver.

It was gathered that President Buhari during the closed door dinner said he was under tremendous pressure to release the ministerial list.

He said: “Many at this dinner meeting are saying they want to see the list of the proposed cabinet so that they can go on leave peacefully.
I’m very much aware about it; I’m under tremendous pressure on it. But the last cabinet which I headed, most of them, the majority of them I didn’t know them. I had to accept the names and recommendations from the party and other individuals.

“I worked with them for three and half years at least – meeting twice or two weeks in a month. So I know them.
But, this time around I’m going to be quite me, me in the sense that I will pick people I personally know.”
