Why All Ministers Won’t Get Portfolios- Buhari

Buhari thanked Saraki for the Senate's clearance of his nominees, adding that he followed constitutional provision in picking his team.

The Constitution, he said, stated that there must be a minister from each of the 36 states.

"That was why I limited the number to 36", the President noted, adding:

"The Constitution said there must be one member of the cabinet from all the states but the Constitution did not say I must have 36 ministries."

He said the country could not afford a large carbinet because of the prevailing economic realities.

The economy, he said, had been battered, explaining that he was being factual by saying it as it is and "not to scare investors as the opposition is claiming".

"Any investor who is interested in investing in Nigeria will know about the economy. So, when I talk about the position of the economy, I am also looking for investors," Buhari said.
