Only those with integrity will make my next cabinet – Buhari

103

President Muhammadu Buhari has disclosed that only those with integrity and interest of Nigeria will make it to his next cabinet to be announced after the swearing in on May 29th.

President Buhari disclosed this at a dinner the All Progressives Congress (APC) women and youth organised to celebrate his re-election, on Saturday.

The President promised to appoint more women and youth on his second coming to acknowledge the “significant role” they played toward his re-election, adding that his administration would not disappoint them.

While noting that he is still considering the older people with him, he will consider the requests of appointing women and youth into his new cabinet.

He said: “I will not disappoint you, our objectives are the same. We have to fix this country so that the next generation can have a country to be proud of. We are working very hard to get the infrastructure in place, the roads, the rails so that Nigeria will mind their own businesses.

“I assure you that I have listened on the representation made that my cabinet should include women and youth. Don’t celebrate it yet, I said I have listened to some of the representation made here. Well, I myself I am considering some of the old people and I will protect my constituency too. But I will assure you that I will continue to have a team of people of integrity that are really concerned about Nigeria and Nigerians.”

The President also called on Nigerian youth to embrace agriculture to ensure more food sufficiency and food export.

Noting that more fertilizers are being made available to Nigerian farmers at a lower rate, he said that food importation is reducing while more Nigerians are embracing agriculture.

The President for the umpteenth time described the 16 years of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) rule as one that “wasted the nation’s resources”.

According to him, the country witnessed “rampant infrastructure decay” notwithstanding the huge resources earned during the period.

He called on Nigerians “Please continue to bear with us, we have a very short time in terms of the damage done to the country. I have tried to educate people on the condition we found ourselves when we came in 2015.

“My short experience in the petroleum industry for three and a quarter years, gave me an idea about the economy of Nigeria and I never let go.”

Wife of the President, Mrs. Aisha Buhari in her remarks expressed happiness at the overwhelming confidence reposed on President Buhari by Nigerians, assuring them that he will use his second tenure to serve the interest of the masses, especially by addressing the huge gap between the rich and the poor in Nigeria.

“I wish I can invite all the 15 million Nigerians that voted for Mr. President to this dinner, but no place can accommodate you all. So let me say thank you and assure you that you made the right choice.” She said.

She also thanked the Women and Youth Presidential Campaign team, which she said, complemented the APC Presidential Campaign Council, as well as the Buhari Support Organization.
