Concentrate On Your State – Buhari Shocks APC Govs, Rejects Ministerial List

share on:

General Muhammadu Buhari, Nigeria’s President-elect has reportedly rejected plans by the governors elected on the platform of the All Progressives Congress (APC) to compile the ministerial list for the next administration.

The APC governors, led by Governor Rochas Okorocha of Imo State, had, last Tuesday, visited Buhari in Abuja to pledge loyalty and make some demands, Tribune reports.

In a bid to maintain the tradition already instituted by the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) where the state governors are requested to submit list of possible ministers and Ambassadorial appointees to the president, the governors threw the same request at Buhari and he was said to have out-rightly rejected it, declaring that the Constitution does not mandate him to take a list of ministerial nominees from them.

A source who made this while speaking with Tribune said:“The General was also very unequivocal when he was told that the governors want to submit a ministerial list to him. He clearly said he cannot go into that discussion.

“He insisted that the Constitution does not mandate him to collect such list from the governors and that the state chief executives should concentrate on sourcing good materials that would help them run the states adequately.”

The source quoted Buhari as saying that “I do not think we can discuss that issue of Ministerial list. The Constitution clearly does not mandate me to take a list from the governors. To me, the governors should concentrate on getting good hands to help them in discharging their duties in the states.”
