Revealed: Buhari secretly constitute cabinet in london

constitute cabinet in london

President Muhammadu Buhari has secretly constituted his cabinet in london, it has been gathered.
Buhari departed Nigeria for London after a project commissioning visit to Lagos and Bornu states respectively.
According to his senior spokesperson on media and publicity, Mallam Garba Shehu. the President is scheduled to spend 11days in London on what the publicity scribe described as a personal visit.
Many Nigerians have however reacted to the rationale behind the President’s unscheduled London visit. Many assumptions have been made chiefly pointing to the possibility of the President visiting London for medical attention.
A top politician who is very much abreast with the happenings in the camp of the President spoke with the NigerianNews laughing off the insuations about the President being on a medical visit to London. The party chieftain who does not want his name mentioned said.
“The people are ignorant. We do not blame them. The President is hale and hearty. The undertone behind the President’s visit is to be free from any pressures so as to carefully select capable hands that will run the administration for the next few years. Mamman Daura is there with him. They are coming back with the names of the favoured appointees. You do not have need to panic”.
All efforts made to get the names of the possible cabinet members selected in London from the influential politician met a brisk block as he urged our correspondent to await its unveiling on May 29.
Recall that there has been pressure mounting on the president to name his cabinet especially, with the ruling party recently compiling a list of what it called “loyal party men” ostensibly to be considered for appointment by Mr President. The president is also said to be considering enlarging his cabinet to 42 members to contain the many interests within and outside his party. This possibility stems from the defeat suffered at the polls by some arrowheads within the party and staunch supporters of the President at the 2019 general elections and the need to accommodate them to avoid their crepting into political wilderness. Chiefly among these is, Senator Geoge Akume who lost re-election to a three time member of the house of reps and the chairman house committee on rules and business, Rt Hon. Emmanuel Orker Jev of the PDP, the immediate past senate minority leader, Senator Godswill Akpabio who defected to the APC and lost re-election to the hallowed chambers of the senate to now Sentor-elect, Christopher Ekpeyong also of the PDP among others.
The president is said to be confused on how to accommodate the hundreds of very serious political interests in a position requiring not more than 42 men hence his private visit to London with Mamman Daura to efectively select from these men without undue influence.
