President Buhari to Swear in Ministers on Wednesday.

President Muhammadu Buhari will swear in ministerial-designates on Wednesday, November 11. A statement issued by the presidency said on Sunday, ending a five-month wait for a cabinet to be installed in Africa’s most populace nation. 

"President Muhammadu Buhari will officially inaugurate a new Federal Executive Council on Wednesday, November 11, 2015," said the emailed statement from Buhari’s spokesman Femi Adesina.  

"Before the commencement of the inaugural session of the council, the ministers-designate will take their oaths of office in the Council Chambers of the Presidential Villa," it said, adding that this would begin at 10 am local time (0900 GMT).

Buhari took his 36 ministers on a retreat on Thursday and Friday during which they were handed documents, seen by Reuters, which outlined the state of the economy and the government’s policy goals.
