“Some of the people holding high positions in the government, like my ministers, will tell you that I didn’t know them from Adam.

“I just came across their names from the records and I worked with the records. I thank God that I have a very good team,” he said.

With the events of Babachir and Oke, the president has been accused of appointing incompetent hands to head some ministries, and has come under pressure to reshuffle his cabinet.
