Why my cabinet will be small – Buhari

I think this is a question meant for the party. I wish John Oyegun was here to answer you because we have a system. Just because I am the presidential candidate and the president-elect, I don’t think the system has allowed me to usurp the power of the party executives. But, certainly, in a multi-party democratic system, fundamentally, it is the number that matters for the people. But for the party, what matters is the ability to manage the number so that the majority will have its way and there will be justice. No matter what happens to the PDP by May 29, I assure you or I assure them through you that there will be justice in the APC.

I had warned before the jobs were awarded that part of why the pipelines were destroyed in the past in the region was because the contracts given out earlier by the federal government did not go to residents of most of the communities.
