SHOCKER: Buhari refuses to meet with his ministers

President Muhammadu Buhari has reportedly turned down requests by some ministers who were seeking audience with him to engage him on pressing matters of governance. According to a report on, the president insinuated that he does not have the luxury of days to spend with each ministers. “Well, thank God there are only 30 days in a month”, Mr Buhari reportedly told  ministers who were seeking audience with him on issues relating to the challenges they were facing in the management of their various ministries and other assignments they were carrying out for the Federal Government. Nigeria has 36 ministers.

Quoting a source, the report added that: “The least the President should have done was listen carefully and ask questions if need be. The Ministers were not asking him to give one day each to every one of them, they just needed a forum where they could really engage their Boss and bring him up to speed on some knotty issues. But he shut them down.” The source also said the federal executive council meetings were not sufficient for ministers to engage the President adding that the council meeting was not the convenient place to discuss issues the ministers had. This recent development marks the second in a row where President Buhari is reported to have treated his ministers with contempt. Recall that he reportedly walked out on ministers during a meeting at presidential villa.
