Jul 11, 2023

The National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Senator Abdullahi Adamu, has given reasons why President Bola Tinubu’s ministerial list is being delayed.

According to him, the delay in the unveiling of the President’s ministers and heads of ministries, departments, and agencies was because Tinubu was carrying out an extensive consultation before making an official announcement.

ADULAWO NEWS reports that on Monday, the National Working Committee (NWC) of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) held a crucial meeting with State chairmen from across Nigeria.

It was gathered that Adamu and the National Working Committee called the meeting.

The meeting, which commenced at about 1:45 pm on Monday, had Hon. Ali Bukar Dalori, Borno Chairman, leading the other 31 Chairmen.

This online news platform understands that at the meeting, the APC national chairman told party chieftains not to be too expectant about the President’s ministerial list, even though loyal members would make Tinubu’s cabinet.

Adamu said Tinubu could not appoint everybody as a minister; therefore, their expectations should not be high.

Adamu said, “Every APC member has an inherent right to hope to get some patronage. We cannot all be ministers of the government. We cannot all end up as board members, directors of parastatals, and MDAs across the country.

“President has just started. He is doing his extensive consultations before coming up with his nominees for ministers. The nomination of the ministers will come first. They will go through their screening until they are pronounced after they have been submitted before Mr President. He will formally appoint his ministers and swear them in. Only then will he disclose each of them to the country to know which minister is going to which ministry and how many ministries we are going to have.

“After that is done, the ministers will assume office, make a comprehensive report, starting from all the ministries and MDAs under them, before we know what vacancies exist for chief executives, directors and part-time directors.

“These are some of the exercises that will take place in the next two months. It cannot happen by next week. But certainly, that is what we should be expecting.

“But we do expect some patronage from the government that we are forming. It is our hope and prayers that Mr President will come along with us in that regard and strengthen the relationship of the party in the states and at the national level will enjoy some level of patronage in the new government.
