President Muhammadu Buhari says he did not know some of his appointees when he appointed them.

Buhari said he came across names of some of his appointees from the records made available to him.

He said this at a state dinner organised in his honour at Abakaliki, Ebonyi state capital, according to a statement issued by Femi Adesina, his spokesman.

The president is on a two-day official visit to the state.

Buhari said his appointments were based on merit and in the best interest of Nigeria.

“Some of the people holding high positions in the government, like my ministers, will tell you that I didn’t know them from Adam,” he was quoted to have said.

“I just came across their names from the records and I worked with the records. I thank God that I have a very good team.”

The statement also said the President commended David Umahi, Ebonyi state governor, for his development strides in the state.

According to the statement, Buhari said “the absolute commitment of the governor to his position is very remarkable and I am very impressed.

“We should continue to pray to God that the elites that will be in charge of the country in the future fear God.”
