The executive president of Nigeria, Muhammadu Buhari, has come out clear on ministerial nomination that the All Progressives Congress (APC) will not prevail on him on the matter of ministerial appointments during his second term administration.
Buhari disclosed this on Thursday evening while addressing leadership of the National Assembly at a meeting held inside Aso rock.
He added ”I’m very much aware about it; I’m under tremendous pressure on it. But the last cabinet which I headed, most of them, the majority of them I didn’t know them. I had to accept the names and recommendations from the party and other individuals.
“I worked with them for three and half years at least – meeting twice or two weeks in a month. So, I know them.
“But, this time round, I’m going to be quiet me – me in the sense that I will pick people I personally know.”
He however, disclosed that both the external and internal pressure mounted on him can not cow him into releasing the list.
