But the national leadership of the opposition Peoples Democratic Party, PDP has alleged that the ministers will be useless in President Buhari’s government.
The PDP leadership are claiming that
the disposition of Buhari was not to appoint any aide, but to run the government as a sole administrator.
The opposition party alleged that this was the reason President Buhari had been shifting the dates when he would appoint his cabinet, adding that he had earlier tagged ministers as “noise makers.”
“From his hesitancy and comments, it is deducible that President Buhari never intended to appoint ministers but rather prefers to run a monocracy and evidently does not value or respect those he would nominate as ministers.
“Otherwise, how can anyone repackage the mindset of the President when he, in an interview with France 24 Television in France, stated categorically that his preference is to rule without a cabinet and denigrated ministers as ‘noise makers,’ and of no importance or value in the running of an administration?
“Given this worrisome outlook, it is obvious that the Presidency would not attach any value or importance to the ministers under the new sheriff,” PDP insisted.
