Buhari gave hints of the new appointments in a speech delivered on Tuesday to the National Executive of the All Progressives Congress (APC).

The president at the moment has 36 ministers, with 14 of them being ministers of state. He doubles as the full minister of petroleum.

Now faced with demands by his party for more inclusiveness and patronage, Buhari said he would be shifting ground soon.

The “compressed Federal Executive Council”, he said, “will be expanded to bring in more supporters at Federal Level, with fresh ideas to be injected into the government”.

Similarly, the president also hinted he will be appointing more people to the boards of government agencies and corporations.
