Buhari Gets Angry, Chases Out Top APC Chieftains Who Came To Lobby For Appointments, From Aso Rock

Emerging report reaching Post-Nigeria, on Sunday, revealed that a group of prominent Politicians from the All Progressives Congress, APC, recently incurred the anger of the President Muhammadu Buhari, when they tried to lobby him to consider certain individuals for appointment as Ministers.

Top Presidential sources said that the President was furious when the group, after congratulating him, raised the issue of Ministerial appointments.

Specifically, they told the President that they wanted to nominate certain Politicians for consideration for Ministerial appointments.

“He was very angry with them when they raised the issue of Ministerial appointment. He sent them away, because he does not want any interference”, one of the sources said, pleading not to be named.

The source maintained that the President was keeping the issue of the Ministerial appointments close to his chest.

“Except when those people came and he was angry, he has been keeping the whole thing to his chest. He does not want any interference”, he said.

Another State House source, said that the President’s body language indicated that massive changes would be made in his new cabinet.

“I do not know who and who among the Ministers will not be re-nominated. What I know is that a lot of the cabinet members will not make the Ministerial list.

“The President has been so generous to us. The tradition has been that after two years or even less, the cabinet is reshuffled. But since 2015, there has not been such a thing. With the exception of two Ministers who joined after a year, the rest have participated in four budget circles. This is enough for them to perform and score pass marks”, he said.

The President throughout his first tenure did not appoint or reshuffle his cabinet, except when Amina Mohammed, former Minister of Environment, left in December, 2016, to become the Deputy Secretary-General of the United Nations, and also when James Ocholi died in a car crash, along Kaduna-Abuja road.

While Amina was replaced by Suleiman Hassan, Professor Stephen Ocheni succeeded the late Ocholi.

However, President Buhari while at a victory dinner organised by his wife, Aisha, at the State House Conference Centre, weeks ago, gave a clue on how his next cabinet will be, saying that, it would include youths, women, and old people.

Buhari had said: “I assure you that I have listened to the representation made, that my cabinet should include women and youths. Do not celebrate it yet; I said I have listened to some of the representation made here.

“Well, I myself, I am considering some of the old people, and I will protect my constituency too, but I will assure you that I will continue to have a team of people of integrity, that are really concerned about Nigeria and Nigerians.
