Buhari may dissolve cabinet before May 29- Spokesman


Femi Adesina, presidential spokesman, has revealed that President Muhammadu Buhari will likely dissolve his cabinet before May 29.

Speaking on Arise Television on Thursday, Adesina said the president will not spend a long time before choosing his cabinet members unlike he did in 2015 where he took six months to unveil his cabinet.

When asked if the president would reshuffle his cabinet, 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 reconstitute a government; he appoints his personal aides, he forms his cabinet, he appoints other people to fill other positions.”
