Buhari to appoint Ministers when possible - Presidency
President Muhammadu Buhari will appointment Ministers only when it is feasible, his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Mr. Femi Adesina said Tuesday.
Speaking in reaction to massive public concern on why the president has not formed his cabinet, Adesina said that the president is preparing the grounds for the Ministers, saying that they would be appointed at the fullness of time.
He said: 'The appointment of Ministers is constitutional because the constitution prescribes that there must be a Minister from at least one state of the federation and President Muhammadu Buhari will do what is constitutional. So, he will constitute a cabinet.
'But then when he does it is his prerogative. He is the one who will determine when he needs that cabinet. But for now, he has said that he wants to lay a proper foundation for the administration and that's why he has been working with bureaucrats; the various Permanent Secretaries.
'For the past two weeks and still going forward, the Permanent Secretaries have been briefing him on the state of their ministries and then, I am sure at the fullness of time, the Ministers will be appointed.' - Vanguard.
