‘President won’t be petroleum minister' - Femi Adesina

The presidential aide made the comments via Twitter on Monday, October 12, 2015.
"President Buhari is not going to be designated as Minister but will supervise the
Ministry...he has all it takes to supervise the ministry," Adesina tweeted.
"President Buhari would respect the constitution. And the constitution says Ministers must be appointed from each state," he added.
