President Muhammadu Buhari has sent the names of over 200 people he is considering for political appointments to relevant security agencies for screening, a reliable source close to the Aso Rock seat of power has disclosed.

“Of the over 200 names sent for screening, only just over 30 were cleared, while the rest had question marks,” the source told News Express.

Buhari, who assumed office on May 29, has promised to name his cabinet in September. He has so far failed to appoint key personal staff such as Chief of Staff and Secretary to the Government of the Federation. He has also failed to appoint special assistants approved for him in early June by the previous Senate.

The retired military ruler, who as functioned more or less as a Sole Administrator, says has made it clear that only clean people will be appointed to work with him over the next four years.
