President Muhammad Buhari has insisted that there will be no portfolios for the Ministers.
The President who disclosed this during a meeting with The Senate President,Bukola Saraki explained that the Federal Government might not be able to fund all the existing ministries, given the unavailability of funds.
President Buhari emphasized that his administration would not have 36 ministries because of the economic downturn.
Recieving the list of 36 ministerial nominees confirmed by the Senate from Dr Bukola Saraki, he commended the Senate for a job well done, especially as the National Assembly passed all the names he submitted.
Telling his critics that they cannot stop him from telling the country the truth, he insisted that some of the ministers would stay without portfolio following an economy that has been battered.
The Senate President himself acknowledged the economic challenges facing the country and said that the issue of portfolios should not be trivialized.
