According to reports from Daily Trust, President Muhammadu Buhari is to assign portfolio and administer the oath of office on his ministers “most likely on Wednesday.”
A source at the Presidency, who craved anonymity because he was not authorized to speak on the issue, disclosed this to a Daily Trust correspondent yesterday.
“The first major official assignment before Mr President in November is the inauguration of his cabinet. Arrangements have already been made for this and this [will] most likely happen on Wednesday,” the source said.
In the same vein, an aide to one of the ministers-designate also told our correspondent last night that his principal had received a message from the Presidency that the inauguration would take place on Wednesday.
“The inauguration is taking place Wednesday next week, according to what I heard my boss saying this (yesterday) afternoon,” the aide said.
But the Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Mr Femi Adesina, said only the president would communicate when he would inaugurate his cabinet, adding that they would have to notify their family members.
