Chief John Odigie-Oyegun, national chairman of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) has spoken about the people who will form President Muhammadu Buhari’s cabinet in September.
He said that the cabinet will be formed by people the president can confidently instruct as to what he expects of them.
Party’s national chairman spoke at the APC national secretariat in Abuja while receiving a delegation of the Association of Northern Students on the occasion of his 76th birthday.
APC leader added that Buhari would set up his team in the next few weeks.
Oyegun said: “In the next few weeks, he will now assemble the team who he can confidently give direct instructions as to what he expects to be done, which means he is in a better position to measure whether anybody entrust with any function is performing or not performing, he is meeting target or not.
“So we have a totally new situation, a new reality and a new approach to governance which is emphasising target and deliverables in the lives of the people that he has been entrusted to govern.”
He added that the current government had accepted a new approach to governance while also assuring that the Nigerian leader was going to put in place a team he could confidently give instruction as to what he expected.
Odigie-Oyegun said, “Let anybody make no mistake about how committed President Buhari is. In fact, that is the core of his life and he has spent the last two months understanding the situation that he has taken over without interference and distractions.
“He has been able to hear, sit and interact with the core operators without third party intermediaries.”
Earlier, President Buhari has felicitated with Chief John Oyegun as he celebrates his 76th birthday anniversary on Wednesday, August 12, 2015.
