President Muhammad Buhari through his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina, has said that the new cabinet will soon be formed.
This is coming Buhari 26 days after Buhari was sworn in for his second term in office.
The President has since made just three appointments: Mele Kyari as the Group Managing Director of the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation, NNPC, and renewal of Ahmed Idris’s appointment as the Accountant-General of the Federation, AGF, and renewing the appointment of Godwin Emefiele, Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria, CBN.
In his first term, it took Buhari six months to announce his ministerial list.
However, speaking in a chat in an interview, Adesina said: “the circumstances are not the same”, adding that it will not take as long as it did in 2015.
“Nigerians will not have to wait a day longer than necessary, before they have a cabinet,” Adesina said.
“And as the President himself has said, the process won’t take as long as it did in 2015, because the circumstances are not the same.”
News was rife last week that Buhari’s ministerial list was ready.
