My Cabinet Will Be Based On Merit And National Spread- Buhari by Godjone(m): 5:47am On Mar 30, 2019
By Ismail Mudashir | Published Date Mar 30, 2019



President Muhammadu Buhari yesterday said political appointees for his second term will be selected based on merit and national spread. He spoke when he met religous leaders at the State House in Abuja, and assured them of his commitment to leave Nigeria better than he met it in 2015.


Buhari separately received the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) led by Rev. Dr. Samson Ayokunle, and Imams and senior Muslim clerics from across the country led by Professor Shehu Galadanci. He affirmed that his administration would continue to address important national challenges including security, economy and corruption.



“We will continue to strive for peaceful co-existence among all Nigerians irrespective of their religious beliefs. In the area of allocation of political offices, our focus will be on merit and national spread such that every part of Nigeria will have a sense of belonging.


‘‘We remain resolute in the fight against terrorism and insurgency, and efforts to bring back all those in captivity and other victims of kidnappings will be intensified,’’ he said.



Commending the important roles religious bodies played in the last four years of the administration, Buhari pledged to continue supporting several programmes anchored by the Nigeria Inter-Religious Council (NIREC) geared towards peace, tolerance, unity and harmony.


Speaking after the meeting held behind closed doors, Ayokunle said the association was not under pressure to congratulate Buhari. “This delegation has come on behalf of CAN to congratulate you for victory and for being declared winner by INEC at the just-concluded 2019 presidential election.


“Our prayer for you is that God shall grant you everything it takes to perform hundred times better than your first term. We pray that your administration leads Nigeria to become the glory and pride of nations in Africa and a country many people would desire to be, in the name of Jesus Christ our Lord and Saviour.


“Please count on this organization as one that has the success of your administration at heart. In that respect, we would not cease in praying for you and speaking out about what is expected to be done from time to time in keeping with the Bible, the word of God,” he said.


The association urged the president to ensure ethnic and religious balance in the selection of the leadership of the National Assembly.
The religious leaders solicited for deliberate and relentless effort to free Leah Sharibu, and the Chibok girls, from captivity.


At a separate meeting, the Muslim clerics urged the president to end kidnapping, illicit drugs consumption, among others in the country.


Galadanci, who led the clerics, said: “Your victory, no doubt, demonstrates that the desire of the majority of Nigerians is to ensure the continuity of your administration to the next level. We pray that Almighty Allah will grant you the ability to continue with the excellent work you have been doing.”

Taking up to six months is not even the issue, but insulting our sensibilities to end up bringing rogues, thieves and incompetent Ppl after wasting over six months is my concerns

The caption of this topic and its contents are just two different things. I was expecting to see or hear that east will get this slot, west will get this slot, north and south will get this slot respectively, not this nonsense thing and grammar that I have been hearing over 100 years from politicians

Bless you bro. People like HalepSimon is the reason why Nigeria is backward. We define stolen wealth as success. Akpabio is a certified Barrister...but I'm yet to hear of any court case he won in his law career before he ventured into politics. When Nigerians learn the true definition of success, we will start making progress
