The president made the disclosure while addressing the leadership of the National Assembly during a dinner on Thursday night in Abuja.

Buhari said, “I am very much aware about it and I am under tremendous pressure on it.”

“The last cabinet which I had, most of them, a majority of them I didn’t know.

“I had to accept their names and recommendation from the party. I worked with them for three and a half years.”
