I Am Glad That Buhari Did Not Interfere My Cabinet’s Formation – Tinubu


President Bola Ahmed Tinubu praised his predecessor Muhammadu Buhari on May 29, 2023, just a few months after Buhari’s inauguration, for not meddling in the formation of his 48-member cabinet.
This was disclosed by Tinubu on Tuesday in Abuja during the book launch of “Working with Buhari: Reflections of A Special Adviser, Media, and Publicity (2015–2023),” written by Femi Adesina, the presidential spokesman from the recent past.

He said:

“After handing over, you (Buhari) said, ‘I will be far away in Daura but if you need me, contact me.

“I won’t intrude in whatever you are doing. I won’t interfere. I won’t breathe down on your throat’.

“We’ve partnered to make democracy flourish in Nigeria, thank you.

“Except when I call him (on the phone) to say, ‘Are you living, are you going to the farm?’, you don’t hear from him (Buhari) either to nominate or intrude in the cabinet or complain about issues. Thank you for being who you are.”
