President Muhammadu Buhari has made it clear that he would appoint his ministers in September because he still needs time to make the right choices..
The president who made this known in an article published in Washington Post to coincide with his meeting with US President, Barrack Obama, justified his action by making reference to his United States counterpart, Barrack Obama who also for several months after taking oath of office, did not have his full Cabinet.

“When cabinet ministers are appointed in September, it will be some months after I took the oath of office. It is worth noting that Obama himself did not have his full Cabinet in place for several months after first taking office; the United States did not cease to function in the interim.

“In Nigeria’s case, it would neither be prudent nor serve the interests of sound government to have made these appointments immediately on my elevation to the presidency; instead, Nigeria must first put new rules of conduct and good governance in place.

President Buhari acknowledged that Nigerians elected him because they needed change, adding that the change cannot be achieved overnight due to the rot in the system, adding: “I was elected on a platform of change. I know this is what the people of Nigeria desire more than anything else. I know they are impatient for action. I realize the world waits to see evidence that my administration will be different from all those that came before. Yet reforming my country after so many years of abuse cannot be achieved overnight.

“In our campaigns against both Boko Haram and corruption, we should remain steadfast and remember, as it is said: “Have patience. All things become difficult before they become easy.” [myad]
