APC undeterred by Buhari cabinet absence

02 September 2015, 14:35

Abuja - The All Progressives Congress (APC) in the Rivers State has defended the delay by President Muhammadu Buhari in naming his cabinet.

Some 100 days after the inauguration, the head of state is yet to name ministers to steer the country.

Chris Finebone, Rivers APC spokesperson, however defended the prolonged wait for a cabinet.

“As someone who is focused and with a clear plan for governance, President Muhammadu Buhari shortly after being sworn in as President announced that he would appoint Ministers in September,” Finebone explained.

“Despite the curiosity expressed by some Nigerians and following recent appointments by Mr. President, it has become clear to many that President Buhari has clear strategic and tactical plans of what he is set out to do as the President of Nigeria.”

A recent survey by a leading economic think-tank suggested the majority of Nigerians (87 percent) consider September 2015 as a good time for the President to appoint his ministers citing he needs time to select the best officials.

However, opposition parties, most prominently the People’s Democratic Party has bemoaned the lack of a cabinet arguing it was impacting on the country’s economy.
