President Buhari Finally Reshuffles Cabinet, Set To Make Announcement, Tinubu, Kwankwaso get Juicy Ministerial Slots
Fresh reports indicate that President Muhammadu Buhari has finally given out Ministerial slots to the National Leader Of the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, Bola Tinubu, and former Kano State Governor, Senator Rabiu Kwankwaso.
Recall, that Buhari had allegedly decided to inject new blood into his cabinet anything time soon. According to a top Presidential source: “Jagaban, as he is fondly called, lost out earlier in the Ministerial appointments, as Buhari selected Fashola, and former Ekiti State Governor, Kayode Keyamo, his estranged political godsons; so he will be compensated this time around.
“Another slot will likely go to former Kano State Governor, Senator Rabiu Kwankwaso. “The reason for this is clear; Lagos and Kano have a population of around 45 million, and the highest votes.”
The source added:
“The expansion of the Federal cabinet will happen, no doubt about this. In fact, it is what virtually every party stalwart has been clamouring for.
“And on this issue of more appointments, the President has given his word privately and publicly. He will fulfill his promise.”
“Last year, I said we would re-constitute the Boards of Parastatals. I must regret the fact that we have not done so, for many reasons”, Buhari recently said at the party’s National Executive Council, NEC, meeting, in Abuja.
“Some of us in this meeting may know I had given instructions since October 2015, for this exercise to start. But there have been inordinate delays by several Committees, in an attempt to get the balance right and to make sure all parts of the country are equitably represented.
“On the other hand, I am keenly aware that our supporters are very eager for these appointments to be announced. By the Grace of God, these appointments will be announced soon. Especially now that the economy is improving, we will have the resources to cater for the appointees.”
