Buhari is Petroleum minister: President to oversee ministry

The Senate Spokesperson, Senator Dino Melaye, has on Wednesday disclosed that the senate is yet to receive President Muhammadu Buhari’s ministerial list as deadline looms.

“We are still waiting for the ministerial list from the President. I want to advise that there is no need for agitation because September expires by midnight and the office of the Senate President is open, “Melaye said.

Meanwhile, reports from New York, where Buhari has been attending the UN General Assembly, quoted the president as saying he would be minister of petroleum resources, with a junior minister taking charge of day-to-day affairs in the sector.

“Confirmed. He said so,” his spokesman Femi Adesina told AFP in a text message, without giving further details.

Buhari’s caution in appointing ministers has seen him nicknamed “Baba Go Slow” in Nigeria, but he has promised to name his cabinet by Wednesday, Sept 30, 2015.
