President Muhammadu Buhari on Thursday admitted being under pressure to present the list of ministerial nominees to the National Assembly.

Addressing the leadership of the National Assembly during a dinner on Thursday night in Abuja, the President said he is under pressure to unveil his ministerial nominees.

“I am very much aware about it and I am under tremendous pressure on it,” he said.

President Buhari added, “The last cabinet which I had, most of them, a majority of them I didn’t know.

“I had to accept their names and recommendation from the party. I worked with them for three and a half years.”

Buhari, who was sworn in for a second term on May 29, had yet to appoint his ministers more than a month after his swearing-in.

The President, however, explained that the delay was to nominate people he knows personally and can work with.
