Returning from a 10-day visit to London, the United Kingdom, yesterday, President Muhammadu Buhari told newsmen that he will not make any comment about those who will make his next cabinet, saying he was ready to settle down and swear in the new cabinet.
Asked who would make his cabinet at the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport, Abuja, shortly after his arrival, President Buhari said: “I won’t tell you.”
He also refused to respond to the question on whether he compiled a ministerial list while in London.
On the widespread kidnappings in the country, Buhari said he noticed the acting Inspector General of Police, Mohammed Adamu, had lost weight, saying it was a sign that he was working hard.
President Buhari’s aircraft had touched down at 6:24p.m.
Meanwhile, the Presidency has told those spreading rumuours that the President was not returning to Nigeria after the expiration of 10 days as he promised to swallow their pride.
A statement by the Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Chief Femi Adesina, after the arrival of President Buhari read: “Some reckless online media, irresponsible political opposition and other bilious groups and individuals, had gone on overdrive since the President left the country on April 25, insinuating that he was going for hospitalisation and would not return after 10 days as stated.
“In their vain imaginations, they even stated that fictive doctors have advised President Buhari to stay longer for more intensive care.
“Now that the President has returned, can these apostles of evil imaginings swallow their words? Can they retract their tendentious stories as well as press statements and apologise to millions of Nigerians both at home and in the Diaspora that they have fed with hogwash?”
