President Muhammadu Buhari said he gave Kano and Kaduna states two ministerial slots because of the massive votes he got from the states during the 2019 Presidential election.
Buhari stated this during a courtesy visit to the Emir of Zazzau, Dr Shehu Idris in his palace in Zaria, Kaduna State.
It would be recall that President Muhammadu Buhari scored 1,464,768 votes and 993, 445 votes in Kano and Kaduna states respectively.
Buhari promised he will ensure the new cabinet is working for the good of Nigeria and Nigerians.
“Before you push everything to me, I am just reminding you that I will do my best and I will make sure that the new cabinet is working for the good of Nigeria and Nigerians,” he said.
“Kaduna and Kano are the only two states I gave two substantive positions in my council. So, I have appreciated your votes and paid you back by giving you ministers of environment and finance” he said.
