Those Against Buhari’s Ministerial Position Are Crooks – Presidency by dre11(m): 9:38am On Oct 05, 2015
The Presidency on Sunday said President Muhammadu Buhari had not broken any law by his decision to serve as the Minister of Petroleum Resources.

Buhari had while granting interview last week during his visit to New York said he would head the ministry, saying he would only appoint a Minister of State to assist him.

The decision has however attracted criticisms from some people who have argued that the nation’s constitution forbids a sitting President from holding another public office.

Some industry experts also claim that the position of a minister will divert Buhari’s attention from his presidential duties and make him wield too much power.

But the Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu, in an exclusive interview with our correspondent, accused those he described as “briefcase-carrying crooks” as being behind the President’s criticism on the matter.

Shehu said because the said crooks were aware that Buhari would not “do deals” with them, they would not want to go down without putting up a fight, hence the criticism.

He said those in that category were not comfortable because the President was bringing integrity into the oil sector which he described as the most rotten in the nation’s economy.

He added that Buhari would also be bringing knowledge to the sector because beside the military, “the oil industry is one other area where the President is very knowledgeable.”

The presidential spokesman said, “The President has a lot of experience to bring to the oil industry. Besides the military, the oil industry is another area where he is knowledgeable.

“Mr. President also has tremendous integrity which he is bringing to the sector which is the most rotten in the nation’s economy.

“The criticisms are coming from deal makers and briefcase-carrying cooks because they know that Buhari is not a deal maker.

“The deal makers are not ready to go down without shouting because they know that their days are over.”

On the claim that it is unconstitutional for a sitting President to hold another public office, Shehu said all the powers of the executive arm of government reside in the President.

He said Buhari could only be queried if he decided to venture into the legislative or judiciary arms of government.

“The President personifies the Executive. The power of the Executive arm resides in him. He can only be queried if he goes beyond the Executive arm and ventures into the Legislature or Judiciary,” Shehu concluded.

Power corrupt,and absolute power corrupt absolutely,if this president understands nature he would find better ways to do things so as nt to break down.

Mr president is nt tu yound a man,he ws crying in south Africa that he wished he was president at a msh younger age,yet he wnts to be evrything.

The petroleum minsitry is too large a ministry to be presided over by Africa's most populous nation's president.been president alone is big work nt to talk of been minister simultaneouly.

Oil might not be the only sector but it is still the major Revenue Earner for the govt.
Only an unserious govt can afford to leave such vital sector in the hands of Sharks and Hyenas.

The Constitution does not prohibit the president from heading any sector so the issue of constitutionality does not arise. And when we talk of expertise, Buhari is not a neophyte in the oil Sector having served as Petroleum Minister before.
Kachikwu will be there as Junior Minister to assist baba where some of Baba's policy may be seen as outdated.

So enough of the wailing.

Really

If Buharis usurping the petroleum ministry will curb corruption in the oil industry then no problem. But which state is willing to forgo its right since each ought to have a minister according to the constitution.

Is he capable overseeing that ministry successfully, will this result in additional salary and will he subject himself for NASS screening too

Absolute Fact.
Three categories of people antagonise the move:

1. The crooks that claim subsidy payments illegitimately;


2. The swarm of the Wailing wailers association of Nigerian that want corruption to continue under PMB so they can justify the happenings under the Postulant of the Goat and Yam theory. God forbid.

3. The Goats that ate all the Yams in the barn during the said regime, in order to cover their hoof prints in the barn especially now that one of the big Goats has been apprehended and there are fear she's gonna bleat out he accomplice he/she Goats.

Carry on Baba. Be the Petroleum Minister and make us good Nigerians proud of the largest black Nation.

God Bless PMB/PYO.
God Bless FRN.

[size=15pt]Buhari is a retired General, he should appoint himself as Minister of defense and not Minister of Petroleum. [/size]- deadZONE

/

lawyer:


This is the same Garba Shehu telling the whole world that We should be grateful Buhari wants to be Petroleum Minister but failed to point out that Section 138 of the 1999 constitution expressly disqualifies the president from Holding any other job

" The President shall not, during his tenure of office, hold any other executive office or paid employment in any capacity whatsoever".

The fact a former dictator Obj got away with it 6 years ago does not make it legal and it's unjustifiable. Has he told us whether the President would present himself for confirmation too or come and defend himself and the petroleum ministry through legislative summons when called upon? Garba should stop Taking Nigerians for granted with his obtuse statements.

1. I pay my condolence and sympathy to you for having Barcanista as a role model.


2. Baba handled the whole ministries prudently and efficiently for what a single individual can do as an administrative and political head for about a third of a year what would it take the same man to handle a ministry he once efficiently handled as a minister? Do the Math Mr. Man.


3. In whatever we do, let's try and be fair to all irrespective to our primordial differences and some level of the Fear of God. Listen to the voice in your heart brethren.


4. Nigeria is here to stay and God will see us through. Amen.
