Buhari overtures suggest imminent cabinet appointments

Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari said on Thursday he had submitted a list of cabinet members to parliament for approval but asked his countrymen, who have waited four months for news of the appointments, to continue to be patient.

“Impatience is not a virtue,” Buhari, who took office on May 29, said in a televised speech on Independence Day. “The first set of names for ministerial nominees has been sent to the Senate. Subsequent lists will be forwarded in due course.”
