President Muhammadu Buhari very soon will sack at least 15 members of his cabinet, including the Attorney General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Abubakar Malami.
According to A top source in government that Malami has begun moves to truncate the plans.
The Chief Law Officer of the country was said to have met with top members of the Aso Rock cabal to prevail on the President not to sack him.
“President Buhari is planning to sack 15 Ministers with Malami topping the list. Someone gave him the hint and he has started fighting back so bad. He doesn’t want to be sacked.
“Moreover, he is enjoying the support of lots of corrupt politicians, including senior members of the cabal because he is assisting them to sabotage corruption cases,” a presidential source told SaharaReporters.
Buhari had on September 1 sacked Saleh Mamman, the Minister of Power; and Sabo Nanono, the Minister of Agriculture and Rural Development.
The President in a statement after their sacking said changes in his cabinet will be “a continuous process”.
Two years and some months into the second term, the tradition of subjecting our projects and programmes’ implementation to independent and critical self-review has taken firm roots through sector reporting during Cabinet meetings and at retreats,” the statement signed by Femi Adesina, presidential spokesman had read.
These significant review steps have helped to identify and strengthen weak areas, close gaps, build cohesion and synergy in governance, manage the economy and improve the delivery of public good to Nigerians.
