President Buhari speaking during a dinner for lawmakers in the state House last night in Abuja, has asked that he be given more time to compile the list, as he would like to work with people he knows.
The lawmakers at the dinner, said they want to see the list of the proposed cabinet so that they can go on leave peacefully.
Responding, Buhari said: “I’m very much aware of it; I’m under tremendous pressure on it. The last cabinet which I had, 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 around, I will pick people I personally know.” he said.
