Atiku: My cabinet will be ready before May 29, 2019

FORMER Vice President and presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) says his cabinet will be ready before May 29, 2019 if elected president.

Apparently firing a salvo at President Muhammadu Buhari, Atiku tweeted on Friday evening that he would not take him six months to name his cabinet, stressing that the country needs a decisive leader to get it working again.

“If Nigerians elect me as their President, I will NOT take 6 months before naming my cabinet. My cabinet will be ready before May 29, 2019, if by the grace of God, you elect me,” he wrote.

“Our country needs a decisive leader to Get Nigeria Working Again.”

President Buhari unveiled his cabinet five months after he was sworn-in. He was criticised for taking too long to name his ministers at a time when the economy was severely hit by the fall in oil prices.

To demonstrate his readiness to hit the ground running once he is elecetd, Atiku this evening announced former governor of Anambra State, Peter Obi as his running mate, less than eight days that he was elected the PDP presidential candidate.
