President Muhammadu Buhari has said his decision to give Kaduna and Kano states two senior ministerial positions was his way of appreciating the votes he received during the 2019 presidential election.
Kano gave Buhari 1, 464,768 votes – the highest in the February 23 election – while he had 993, 445 votes from Kaduna.
Buhari said this during a courtesy visit to Shehu Idris, emir of Zazzau, at his palace in Zaria, Kaduna.
“Before you push everything to me, I am just reminding you that I will do my best and I will make sure that the new cabinet is working for the good of Nigeria and Nigerians,” the President said.
“Kaduna and Kano are the only two states I gave two substantive positions in my council. So, I have appreciated your votes and paid you back by giving you ministers of environment and finance
