201511_Buhari cabinet positions


Over the last 5 months of the Buhari administration, the most consistent criticism has been one of a lack of a sense of urgency in tackling the business of governance.
No other measure displays this more that the fact that the cabinet has taken over five months to form. Since we have now crossed the hurdle of ministerial nomination and confirmation, and are finally at the stage where a cabinet will be constituted, no two things will show the direction of this government more than how the ministries are constituted and the 2016 budget.
At SBM Intelligence, we have repeatedly made calls in our daily and weekly briefings for the constitution of an economic team and a clear policy direction to be communicated clearly by government.
At this critical point where the ministers take office and begin to run with the vision of this government, we would like to reiterate that this government has already lost five months and so the new cabinet must commence with a sense of urgency, and to use an oft repeated phrase, hit the ground running.
During the campaign period, the APC, which eventually came into power, made a lot of promises in their manifesto. Nigerians will hold them accountable to every promise. Beyond this however, we will like to highlight areas we believe should be the key focus areas of this government going forward.
