Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina, has given hints that President Muhammadu might dissolve his cabinet before his inauguration on May 29.
Speaking on Arise Television on Thursday, Adesina assured that, unlike in 2015, Buhari would not spend a long time before choosing his members of his new cabinet.
Asked if the president would reshuffle his cabinet, Adesina replied: “One thing about governance is that the first mandate is for four years.
“That mandate elapses 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 reconstitutes a government; he appoints his personal aides; he forms his cabinet, he appoints other people to fill other positions.”
There has been speculation that President Buhari will reshuffle his cabinet which took him six months to unveil.
