Adamawa commissioners may exceed 20—Party Chairman

11 July 2015, 14:47

Yola - Alhaji Yamusa Shuaibu, the Chairman of All Progressives Congress (APC) in Adamawa, said the governor may appoint more than 20 commissioners into the state executive council.

Shuaibu who spoke in an interview with the media on Saturday in Yola, said the action was to give a sense of belonging to every constituency in the state.

Shuaibu who did not give the total number of nominees in the list, said 10 slots were reserved for technocrats.

He explained that the decision to have technocrats in the cabinet was in line with the recommendations of the State Transition Committee.

“The list consisted of 10 technocrats; there are some ministries that need to be handled by the technocrats, if we are to progress," Shuaibu said.

He explained that the list had been sent to the security agencies for screening, adding that very soon it would be sent to the House of Assembly for screening.

Shuaibu also said that the recent APC state chairmen meeting with President Muhammadu Buhari in Abuja was fruitful, adding that he gave an assurance to protect the interest of Nigerians.

He urged Nigerians to be patient as Buhari was not slow but he was trying to avoid unnecessary blunders.

“Rushing to do serious things is bad; it will lead to regrets," the chairman said.
