The National publicity secretary of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Alhaji Lai Muhammed has assured Nigerians that the highly anticipated ministerial list would be released in a matter of days.

Speaking to journalists at the 9th annual Ramadan lecture in Oro, Kwara State on Thursday, July 2, Muhammed acknowledged that the Buhari-led administration is lagging behind, attributing the problem to the transference ‎of government from one political party to the other.

He said, “the concern of Nigerians over the delay in the release of ministerial appointments is genuine. But the fact is that this is the first time in the history of Nigeria that the opposition party will take over government from the ruling party.

“Our plan was to interface and interact with the outgoing government, but it didn’t just work out so  the party set up transition committee which later presented 800 pages handover documents to  Mr. President”

“So, in this kind of situation we found ourselves, we have to be thorough in making appointments ‎because Nigerians expectations are very high and it’s understandable. So, in a couple of days the ministerial cabinet list would be made available and it would be a thing of the past.

“We might be slow, but in reality when we make the right appointments, we will make up for all the shortcoming Nigerians have been complaining about.”

Muhammed also reacted to the People’s Democratic Party’s appraisal of the Buhari government at 30 days, saying PDP is a joker.

“The PDP is just revelling in its new found role of opposition, they are entertaining themselves and Nigerians,” he added.
