President Muhammadu Buhari has said that he is not in a hurry to to appoint ministers. He said this in an interview with AFP on the sidelines of the African Union Summit in Johannesburg.
He queried why Nigerians were so eager to have him name his cabinet, two weeks after he was sworn in as president.
Buhari said that audits were currently being carried out in various government departments — and the finance and petroleum ministries in particular — to try and establish what situation they were left in by the previous administration.
His words: “I don’t know why people are so anxious to have ministers, but eventually we will have.
“I am not in a hurry to get ministers.
“I want to get ministers after at least I have seen this report, so that I don’t have to appoint a minister today and sack him next week”
