The Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina, has assured Nigerians that President Muhammadu Buhari would not delay unnecessarily to constitute a cabinet after his second term inauguration.
Buhari swore in a cabinet on November 11, 2015, six months after his first term inauguration, which attracted criticisms from many stakeholders.
However, Adesina said the president would not be toeing the same line during his second term as the circumstances were different.
“The circumstances are no longer the same. So, there would be no delay. When you land in the mud of poor and delayed handover notes as happened in 2015, with a vandalised economy and a polity with different types of challenges, the delay would be understandable. But now, we have the good fortune of transition from government to government headed by the same President and Vice President, things can then be done more expeditiously,” The Guardian quoted him as saying.
