I was misquoted on ministerial list, Lawan says
Presidential Muhammadu Buhari yesterday hosted the leadership of the National Assembly led by Senate President, Ahmad Lawan to a dinner at the State House, Abuja.
The dinner which started around 8:30pm ended around 10:00pm, our correspondent reports. That was the first time that the president will be hosting the entire leadership of the parliament since the inauguration of the ninth assembly on June 11.
It was gathered that at the dinner held behind closed doors, the president told the lawmakers that only capable persons will be part of his next cabinet.
“Many at this dinner meeting are saying they want to see the list of the proposed cabinet so that they can go on leave peacefully.
“I’m very much aware about it, I’m under tremendous pressure on it. But the last cabinet which I headed, most of them, the majority of them I didn’t know them. I had to accept the names and recommendations from the party and other individuals.
“I worked with them for three and half years at least meeting twice in a month. So I know them. But, this time around, I’m going to pick people I personally know,’’ Buhari was quoted as saying by a source at the meeting.
“The president told us that only capable, credible and those with track records of service will make his cabinet,” he added.
It took the president six months to constitute his cabinet in 2015, Daily Trust reports.
The president also appealed to the lawmakers to support him to succeed in his second and final term.
“He appealed to us to help him to leave behind legacies that would put the country on the right track,” the source said.
Daily Trust reports that the Speaker of the House of Representatives Femi Gbajabiamila, the Deputy Senate President Ovie Omo-Agege and the Deputy Speaker Ahmed Idris Wase were also in attendance.
The dinner was attended by all the principal officers of the opposition party.
The principal officers in attendance were Abdullahi Yahaya (Senate leader), Senator Ajayi Borofice (deputy senate leader), Orji Uzor Kalu (Chief Whip) and Senator Sabi Abdullahi (deputy Chief whip).
Others are Sen Emmanuel Bwacha (deputy minority leader), Phillip Aduda (Minority Whip) and Sahabi Yau (Deputy Minority Whip). Our correspondent reports that the Senate minority leader, Enyinnaya Abaribe, was absent.
For the House of Reps, Alhassan Ado-Doguwa (Majority Leader), Mohammed Monguno (Chief Whip) and Nkeiruka Onyejeocha (Deputy Whip) attended.
Our correspondent did not see Peter Akpatason (Deputy Majority Leader).
The opposition principal officers of the House namely Ndudi Godwin Elumelu (Minority Leader), Toby Okechukwu (Deputy Minority Leader) Gideon Gwani (Minority Whip) and Adesegun Adekoya (Deputy Minority Whip) were there.
The Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Boss Mustapha, the two presidential aides on National Assembly – Ita Enang (Senate) and Umar Ibrahim El-Yakubu (House) – also attended.
Speaking to reporters after the meeting, Senate President, Ahmad Lawan said he was misquoted on the transmission of ministerial list to the National Assembly this week.
Responding to a question that he announced that the list would be transmitted this week, he said “I never did.”
“Let me take the opportunity to correct that. A senator raised a point of order under personal explanation. He said we should be sent the list of the ministers by the executive arm of government and in my response I said the executive is working so hard to ensure that the list of Nigerians that will help this administration work is going to be transmitted and we could even receive it this week.
“We could’ is conditional and I will urge everybody here to report it as it is,” he said.

Presidency lists President Buhari’s achievements as he marks 5 years in office




Presidency lists President Buhari’s achievements as he marks 5 years in office President Muhammadu Buhari 600x338 1

Ahead of May 29, the Presidency on Thursday, gave a factsheet of President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration in the last five years.

Buhari’s Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina, said Nigeria had recorded significant improvement in the area of security under the current administration.

Adesina insisted that Buhari’s administration was closed to extinguishing terrorism and criminality from Nigeria.

He stressed that from May 29, 2015, till date, the Buhari administration has made much impact in every sector, thereby touching the lives of Nigerians.

The presidential spokesman, while affirming that the Change promised by Buhari was a work in progress, however, assured that the administration wouldn’t be distracted.

According to Adesina: “May 29, 2020, marks the end of the first year of the second four-year term of the Muhammadu Buhari administration, and the fifth year of the government in office.

“The government swept into office on the wings of Change, and that Change has been wrought in nearly all phases of national life. Where the lofty goals are yet to be attained, it is work in progress, and eyes are firmly fixed on the ball. No distraction.

“The three umbrella areas on which the government based its interventionist agenda are: security, reviving the economy (with particular emphasis on job creation, especially for youths), and fighting corruption. In these three areas, where we are today cannot be compared with where we used to be.

“By May 2015, insecurity had badly fractured the fabric of the nation. No one could wager that the country would survive the next month, not to talk of another year. Bombs went off like firecrackers, insurgents ran riot round the country, other forms of crime and criminality held sway. Life was nasty, brutish and short.

“Over five years, the battle has been taken to insurgents and criminals. And they are being extinguished by the day, and very close to complete extirpation.”

In the area of economy, Adesina insisted that Buhari has retooled Nigeria’s economy through diversification from petroleum.

He said manufacturing, Agricultural, and solid minerals sectors now contribute to the countries Gross Domestic Products, GDP, under Buhari’s administration.

Adesina insisted that Nigerians now eat what they plant due to the high level food security.

He said: “The economy, long dependent on a mono product – petroleum, is being retooled, refocused, with diversification as a task that must be accomplished. Agriculture has been given a fillip, manufacturing has got a shot in the arm, and solid minerals are contributing a large chunk to the Gross Domestic Product (GDP).

“The country is very close to food security, with rice, beans, maize, millet, and all sorts of grain no longer imported. We now eat what we grow.”

He boasted that the federal government was committed to the fight against corruption

“On the war against corruption, no quarter is asked, and none is given. Commit the crime, do the term. No retreat, no surrender.

“Facts speak for themselves. And that is what we present at this auspicious season of the fifth anniversary of the Buhari administration. Facts are stubborn things, no matter how anybody tries to deny, distort or deride them,” he added.

Meanwhile, a lawyer, who wished not to be named, in a chat with DAILY POST, rubbished Adesina’s fact sheet.

He insisted that Buhari has not little since assuming power in 2015.

“I have not read the fact sheets but based on what is on ground that everybody is seeing, this administration has not poorly in the past five years of being in power.”

When informed that Buhari claims to have done well in security, economy and fighting corruption, he said: “Is it the poorly equipped military fighting insurgents or the economy that keeps depreciating daily that they want us to clap for them for?

“The corruption they claim they are fighting, how many APC members have been convicted, are they telling us that APC are saints? You see that the opposition are being harassed daily.”

Just few days ago, a Northern elder, Tanko Yakassai had described Buhari as an incompetent leader who has failed to fix the problems for which he was elected.

Yakassai insisted that the past five years had exposed Buhari as a president who can’t fix the problems of Nigeria.

Recall that the senate in January had passed a vote of no confidence on the Military, police and other security structures in Nigeria.

This followed the spate of crime witnessed across the country.

Nigerians, specifically in the North have been victims of Boko Haram, herdsmen, armed bandits and kidnappers, despite security.
