BREAKING: President Buhari In Tears, Blames Goodluck Jonathan For Delay In Appointing ‘Intelligent’ Ministers, To CHANGE Nigeria

President Muhammadu Buhari, has blamed former President, Goodluck Jonathan, for causing the delay in the formation of his Ministerial cabinet.

Recall, that President Buhari was inaugurated on May 29, 2015, but formed his cabinet on November 11, of the same year.

Speaking on Channels Television’s Sunrise Daily, on Monday, Buhari who spoke through the Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu, stated that Jonathan did not give Buhari handover notes, until 48-hours before his departure.

He said: “That President Buhari took 166 days to form a cabinet is absolutely untrue. It took him time to form a cabinet, because the outgoing administration in 2015, did not cooperate with the Transition Committee.

“The President was given handover notes 48-hours to the handover of power, and for whatever reason, the President at that time determined that two governments would not operate at the same time.”

However, a Spokesman for the Atiku Abubakar Campaign Organisation, Mr. Phrank Shuaibu, said that Buhari had a penchant for blaming others, but himself.

Shuaibu said that it was laughable that Buhari who had contested the Presidency for 12 years, could take over 160 days to set up a cabinet.

He stated: “Saying Mr. President had to wait for handover notes from his predecessor before forming a cabinet, is an admittance of lack of preparedness for the Office of the President, and the onerous responsibility of managing a country like Nigeria.

“For an Office you sought election for four times, obviously you should be able to identify eggheads that can help you manage the country. He did not need to wait for handover notes, before being able to form a cabinet. He had no working plan. He was practically what El-Rufai would refer to as an accidental public servant, or an accidental President.”
