President Muhammadu Buhari has stated why he retained all the ministers he appointed since coming to office.

Speaking at the Wednesday valedictory meeting of the Federal Executive Council, the President extolled the virtues of his cabinet, and thanked them for their contributions to his administration.

Buhari noted that except for those who resigned for personal reasons and a minister who died a few months after his appointment, all his cabinet members had remained till now.

He said:

“Although we all had a common vision, we frequently had heated debates in this room on the best way to achieve our goals. These differing views are what made the decisions we took all the more rational.

“It is this quality that made me retain my cabinet for the full term. Each of you in this room has a unique skill and strength. We are a reflection of the Nigeria we aspire to achieve. A diverse but tolerant nation where no one is silenced and where every opinion should be heard and considered,” he said:

The president encouraged them to stay on till a day to the commencement of his second term.
