Pandora Papers: Presidency Reacts To Corruption Scandal Involving Bagudu, Oduah, Others

President Muhammadu Buhari‘s Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu, on Wednesday revealed why his principal delayed in appointing ministers in 2015.

The presidential aide noted that President Buhari upon his emergence in 2015 had long meetings with Permanent Secretaries and heads of the various government agencies and departments.

According to Shehu, the meeting took few months to reach decision on the appointment of ministers.

He stated this in an article to celebrate Buhari’s 78th birthday.

The article reads partly: “As he marks today, December 17 as his birthday, Muhammadu Buhari, driver of change and mobiliser of voters continues in his role as President and Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces of Nigeria, leading by setting examples as the country wades through the thick waves of corruption, insecurity and a Covid economy.”

“The qualities of uprightness and incorruptibility have given the biggest push to Muhammadu Buhari both as a military Head of State and a two-term democratically elected civilian President of Nigeria.”

“Upon his assumption of office in May, 2015, President Muhammadu Buhari sat at long meetings with teams led by Permanent Secretaries and heads of the various government agencies and departments.”

“Those meetings took a few months to go round and were in effect, responsible for the delay in the appointment of ministers into his first cabinet.”
