Baring last minute change, President Muhammadu Buhari may likely unveil his long-awaited cabinet this week, DAILY POST has learnt.
The President has been facing public criticisms, especially from the opposition over his refusal to name his ministers three months after assuming office.
The president has been calling on Nigerians to bear with him till the end of this month to enable him pick credible persons who will work with him.
However, latest report available to DAILY POST indicates that the Department of State Services is done with the screening and the ministerial nominees might likely emerge this week.
A top presidency source hinted that the delay in the release of the ministers might not be unconnected with the fact that some persons were found wanting during the exercise.
“President Buhari is a just man who wants to get his things right. He was careful enough not to appoint anyone who might disgrace or dent his hard-earned name and reputation. The major reason for the delay was because some persons earlier nominated failed the DSS screening.
“The president believes that it is better to have the list late than to come out with some persons that would disgrace his government,” the source said.
Asked when the list would be finally unveiled, the source who would not want his name in print said before Friday.
“I can assure you that before Friday the ministerial nominees would be unveiled. The DSS is done with the screening as we speak”, he said.
On whether the list circulating in the media was truly those that might make Buhari’s cabinet, the source hinted, “you should be careful not to swallow everything you see. There are several names circulating on the social media but I urge you to wait until the president makes it public.”
