Buhari asks officials to declare assets: President asks officials to follow lead

President Muhammadu Buhari is set to head the Ministry of Petroleum for 18 months before appointing a substantive minister for the ministry.

Earlier in June, we had reported that President Buhari is looking to take control of the Petroleum Ministry and according to a source, the President confirmed this while meeting with some members of his political party, the All Progressives Congress, in Abuja recently.

One of those at the meeting, who spoke on condition of anonymity, on Sunday said that the President said he would use the 18 months of heading the petroleum ministry to reposition it.

Having been Chairman of the Petroleum Trust Fund under the regime of General Sani Abacha, Buhari believes he has what it takes to the sanitize the petroleum industry before appointing someone to continue with the good work.
