ABUJA—As opposition continues to mount against the possible emergence of President Muhammadu Buhari as the Petroleum Minister, former Minister of Labour and Productivity, Chief Emeka Wogu, has said there was nothing wrong with the President heading the ministry.

The former minister, who made the position known during the ongoing 8th edition of herbs, health foods and natural products exhibition in Abuja yesterday, contended that executive powers belonged to the President, and as such could share same among himself, the Vice President and all ministers he appointed into his cabinet and urged his critics to tread with caution.

Wogu, who expressed confidence in the President’s ability to supervise the ministry in a most efficient manner, said: “You know that the President of Federal Republic of Nigeria is a powerful President, and any decision he has taken must be in the interest of the country.

‘’The executive powers belong to him, which he can share among himself, the Vice President and ministers he has appointed into cabinet.”
