Fresh!!! Buhari signs polytechnic amendment bill

Boss Mustapha the Secretary to the Government of the Federation, has revealed the date for the new cabinet of President Muhammadu Buhari to be unveiled. According to him, this will be in July 2019.

Speaking at the African Export-Import Bank in Moscow, Mustapha stated that the delay was to allow the National Assembly to complete its assigning of lawmakers into various leadership positions.

In his words;

“Our system is unique. We have an executive system where your membership of a parliament denies you the opportunity of being a minister unless you resign from parliament.

“Mr President is working on his list or must have concluded. He mentioned in his Democracy Day broadcast that he is going to assemble competent Nigerians to help him implement his programmes.

“He was inaugurated on May 29. We had the Democracy Day celebration on June 12. It was a choked-up programme as we had to work towards the emergence of the leadership of the National Assembly because there is nothing you can do if their leadership does not emerge.

“So far, we have part of the leadership that has emerged. The other part will emerge after they return from their recess. They are reconvening on July 2 and it is when they reconvene that we expect they will finish other complements of their leadership.

“There are other key officers needed in the introduction of an executive bill. You don’t go directly to the Senate President; you only write to him. It is the Majority Leader, who represents the party in the Senate that has the responsibility of introducing the bill, and he has received the list too.

“I believe that within the month of July, he will submit the list. It is then up to the Senate to do the needful and conclude the exercise. I keep emphasising that if you have very good leadership in the National Assembly, these things can be finished in a period of one week or two.”
