Nigeria: I Am The Minister For Petroleum - Buhari

As Nigerians still await the submission of Buhari’s ministerial list, news reaching us now is that though he has yet to submit his list to the Senate because he is yet to find suitable candidates, he has meanwhile declared that he will be the petroleum minister.

This news was confirmed by his Special Adviser on media and publicity Femi Adesina. Buhari made his intentions known in far away New York at the on-going UN General Assembly. This is the only ministerial appointment made so far. It is not clear if there is any constitutional backing for this since the Senate is supposed to vet the ministerial list.

Many Nigerians have been unhappy with Mr President and his condescending attitude to Nigerians in general. He has severally made statements that portrayed Nigeria to be full of corrupt people while he is among the few honest ones.

The fact that he has chosen to appoint himself as the Petroleum Minister like Obasanjo did will be interpreted to mean that no one else was found worthy of that office. It will be recalled that Buhari was Petroleum minister under Obansanjo in the late 70s. He was fingered in the missing N2.8billion.

In fact, Olusola Saraki, father of the current Senate President Dr Bukola Saraki  chaired a Senate committee that indicted Buhari on the missing N2.8 billion. The issue could however not be concluded since the accused – Buhari – led a coup that removed the democratically elected government of Shagari, which government was investigating the missing funds.

Today, Buhari is to regain the sit he occupied when N2.8 billion allegedly went missing. Is this a move that a person with integrity would make? Knowing his history with this office, many Nigerians will not feel comfortable with this decision.

It is sad that no Nigerian was found to be qualified and honest enough to hold this office. Nigerians hope that President Buhari will be able to cope with this appointment even with the help of a Minister of state who it is said will run the day to day affairs of the ministry.

If am to advice Mr president, i think he should be a minister of agricultural because he will know when agricultural produce is not yielding well. Please Mr president do you know the colour of crude oil when it is not refined?
