Nigeria: Ministers Are There Just to Make Noise - Buhari

The recent statement made by President Buhari during an interview with France 24 tv might actually have thrown more light on the reason why he has delayed so much in appointing ministers. President had during the interview with François Picard said that Ministers are there to “make a lot of noise.”

According to President Buhari, the ministers actually do essentially nothing. The main jobs according to Buhari were done by the civil servants and technocrats. He said ““The ministers are there, I think, to make a lot of noise; for the politicians to make a lot of noise. But the work is being done by the technocrats. They are there; they have to provide the continuity, dig into the records and then guide us, [those of us] who are just coming in.”

He went on to say “So I think this question of ministers is political. People from different constituencies want to see their people directly in government, and see what they can get out of it.”

Buhari is clearly not happy that he has to by law appoint ministers.He said “As for the cabinet, I said we will have one by the end of the month, and time flies. The end of the month is coming too quickly for my liking.”

His current appointments have been heavily criticized as being highly lopsided. With ministerial appointments, he cannot make such lopsided appointments as the law is very clear on this.

With such a statement that belittles the position of a minister, it is not clear if any self-respecting professional will be happy to be appointed since nothing much is expected of them. Clearly, ministers have no place in Buhari’s version of governance. Much like the same way the current Vice President appears to be more of an errand boy than a part of the government.
