There are speculations that President Buhari might have reversed decision to appoint himself as the Minister of Petroleum Resources.

Iindications have emerged that President Muhammadu Buhari has gone back on his decision to fill the position of petroleum minister
The presidential spokesman, Femi Adesina hinted this when he gave the impression that the reversal was to separate the office of the President from that of petroleum ministry, Vanguard reports.
Adesina was quoted by Bloomberg on Monday, October 12, as saying: “He cannot be president and oil minister at the same time. He will supervise the ministry, so there will be no petroleum minister. Maybe he will appoint a Minister of State.”
