JUST IN: Several Ministers Face Sack, As President Buhari Moves To Appoint New Guys With Fresh Ideas, To Defeat Atiku Abubakar, In The 2019 Elections

President Muhammadu Buhari, is contemplating rejigging his cabinet, in a bid to bolster his chances of succeeding at the 2019 Presidential poll.

A source in the Presidency, revealed that it could happen at Friday’s emergency meeting of the Federal Executive Council, FEC, or it could be delayed for a few weeks.

Post-Nigeria learnt that the emergency FEC meeting, was primarily convened for approval for the 2019 Appropriation Bill, with the government hoping to present the budget proposal to a joint session of the National Assembly, next week.

However, the source disclosed that a cabinet reshuffle at a time like this, with elections approaching, should be no surprise.

“The President is considering dropping Ministers with political baggage, and bring in guys with fresh ideas. He is also hoping to strengthen his campaign spread”, he said.

Recall, that since becoming President, in May 2015, Buhari has not altered his cabinet, the members of which he waited six months before announcing.

Aisha Alhassan, popularly known as Mama Taraba, is the most recent Minister to reluctantly bow out of office. She quit in acrimonious circumstances as the Minister of Women Affairs, in late September, after she was disqualified from contesting the Taraba State Governorship election, on the platform of the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC.

That was two weeks after Kemi Adeosun, the then Minister of Finance, belatedly resigned, following months of sustained public pressure, after it was exposed that she did not undergo the mandatory National Youth Service Corps, NYSC.

Kayode Fayemi, the then Minister of Solid Minerals Development, left in May, to contest the Ekiti State Governorship election, which he won; he was sworn-in in October, while Amina Mohammed resigned as Minister of Environment, in February, 2017, after she was appointed as the United Nations Deputy Secretary-General.
