“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.

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.

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.

Adebanjo reveals real reason behind Buhari’s new attitude towards Osinbajo, says Nigeria should break up

Adebanjo reveals real reason behind Buhari’s new attitude towards Osinbajo, says Nigeria should break up Pa Ayo Adebanjo 1024x717

A chieftain of the Yoruba apex socio-cultural organization, Afenifere, Chief Ayo Adebanjo, has noted that constitutional crisis in Nigeria and the imbalance in the polity are the main cause of agitation for a break-up by different groups in the country.

The lawyer and elder statesman said that it would be better if the country breaks up since the leaders refuse to restructure it.

According to him, “I have no objection to breaking up. People are talking of breaking up because the term of coming together has been abrogated by the northern Muslims who are dominating us,” he was quoted by Sun.

“This is why the young elements, extremists in the South- East, South – South, South –West and the Middle Belt are yearning for break-up just because of their refusal to yield to our demand of peaceful co-existence.”

On the recently reported crisis in the Presidency and the news of Vice president, Prof Yemi Osinbajo falling out of favour with President Muhammadu Buhari, the elder statesman blamed the constitution for the President’s action.

According to him, “It is just what I have said earlier. They are the people who aided and abetted the implementation of the wrong constitution because they give them the crumbs of the power. It is this constitution that empowers the president to make the vice president a market master. Whatever you are doing, the bottom line is the constitution.

“If it is not this constitution, would the president be doing all that; is it not the constitution that gives him all the powers; a constitution that makes him the most powerful head of state in the whole world.

“I have said it several times and I’m repeating it, we said it should be changed, but you say, no. This is not the constitution the founding fathers of the nation gave us.

“I say it again, the constitution that Azikiwe, Awolowo and Ahmadu Bello gave us is what we want to return to, and I have challenged him whether he is more intelligent than Sardauna, but he has not answered.

“Is he telling us that the constitution that Sardauna gave us is a wrong constitution, Sardauna was not as intelligent as he is now; or he is a more northerner than former premier or a more Muslim than the late premier?

“It was the constitution that they all agreed to live in peace and that was after a crisis in the country, leading the colonial office to draw all the leaders to London.”
