Femi Adesina, the Presidential Spokesman, has said that President Muhammadu Buhari will likely sack all his Ministers, before May 29.
Speaking on Arise Television, on Thursday evening, Adesina said that the President will not spend a long time before choosing his new Ministers
He stated that the President had already promised to do so, as soon as possible.
When asked if the President would reshuffle his cabinet, Femi Adesina said: “One thing about governance is that the first mandate was for four years.
“That mandate lapses on May 29, and shortly before May 29, the President is likely going to officially dissolve his government. That is the way it is usually done.
“He says thank you to everybody that he has called to work with him, and then he dissolves that government officially.
“Then when he is inaugurated for a second time, he now reconstitutes a government; he appoints his personal Aides, he forms his cabinet, he appoints other people to fill other positions.”
Recall, that Buhari was declared winner of the 2019 Presidential election by the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, on Wednesday.
The President, Candidate of the All Progressives Congress, APC, won a second term bid, after polling over 15 million votes, to defeat Atiku Abubakar, the Presidential Candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, who secured over 11 million votes, in the election.
