Strangers Were My Ministers During My First Term – Buhari by Limitednow: 5:35am On Jul 12
President Muhammadu Buhari has said most of the ministers he appointed when he was first elected president in 2015 are strangers.

Mr Buhari who took almost six months to appoint the strangers into different ministries had at the time told Nigerians that he took his time to carefully appoint those he described as to have merited the appointment.

The president who was first sworn-in on May 29, 2015 also said his intention to restructure Federal Government ministries accounted for why he did not send names of ministerial nominees to the Nigerian Senate until September 30, of that same year.



He has at different occasions praised his cabinet members as effectively discharging their duties well despite allegation of incompetence levelled against most of them by critics of the administration.

Mr Buhari who was sworn-in for a second term four years after, is yet to name those who will help him pilot the affairs of the nation for another term of four years.

After President of the Senate, Ahmed Lawan, who predicted that ministerial list of the president will arrive the lawmaking arm before the week runs out, led the leadership of the National Assembly to visit the president, the Nigerian leader has said he is under pressure to unveil his ministers.

He also said those who worked with him during his first term are strangers whom he does not know but were recommended to him by his party, the ruling All Progressive Congress, (APC).

“I am very much aware about it and I am under tremendous pressure on it,” Mr Buhari told State House Correspondents after the gathering Thursday night

“The last cabinet which I had, most of them, a majority of them I didn’t know.

“I had to accept their names and recommendation from the party. I worked with them for three and a half years,” he added.

TODAY POLITICS could not independently verify if the president handed over the list to the leadership of the National Assembly. A senator had said should the president fail to send in his ministerial nominees on time, he will have to wait until the legislative arm resumes in September after their two months recess expected to start in two weeks time.

He also opined that this might shatter the plans of both the legislature and the executive to return to the January to December budget cycle.

I bet you, the strangers were the non Fulanis forced on him! They were strangers because they were not to be trusted in his agenda.

What sort of a man is this?

Six month to assemble strangers, four years without knowing the strangers, and successfully took Nigeria to a strange land where death, destruction, strife, hopelessness has become the order of the day.

The finest man in the universe of complains

Buhari's mouth and head is so unpresidential

Oga Buhari, your wife said this and your reply was that she belongs to the other room. She even said that some people were in their house when they were called to come take ministerial appointment. Mrs Aisha Buhari is vindicated.

Now that you have also admitted to the the same allegations, we sincerely deserve an apology Sir.

Indeed, there was Buhari.

Sometimes when you read press release from the presidency, you are tempted to ask, who is in charge of this country?

Can this idiot please respect us for once and stop insulting our sensibility?

By strangers, did the DULLARD mean people from the south and middle belt? because he's never been a friend of those regions, so he couldn't have known people he can work with other than those from his Arewa north.

Prior to his ascension to presidency, Buhari was never heard attending a friend's social event in the south. A man who doesn't mingle with people of other sects than his own will definitely see them as strangers if he ever comes across them.

Now I know Buhari is not a Nigerian or his brain carries the leadership responsibilities beyond its capacity.Is it Fashola,Ngige,Lai and Ameachi that are strange to him even before appointing them as ministers?Three were former governors and Lai also served in Lagos state.

This is the mess Yoruba in their sagacity or do I say sophistication and also gullibility puts us in the country

In South yoruba has always been the weak link and would be in their political sophistication...they owe the nation an apology for putting us in this mess

As of the North...we have given up on them


The better South ...Niger Delta (excluding Edo ) and South East should demand an apology from political gullibility from Yoruba


I am sorry this is the political observation....and I have the right to hold my view .. this is just purely an observation. I could remember the lagoon saga by lil Wayne and the MC guy at igbo dominated areas and other of their politicians threatening igbo to vote en masse


Now they forgot that wise men has a way of coming from the East.

At least the nation has vindicated the igbo...and they have the last laugh.

Truth is what it is

President Buhari needs a Senior Special Adviser on Time to shut the Fvck up, the special aide should be made to disconnect the microphone anytime he wants.to start his unneeded talks.
