The senator representing Kaduna Central senatorial district, Shehu Sani, has called on President Muhammadu, Buhari to purge his cabinet of hyenas, jackals and wolves in his efforts to move the country forward.
Sani who described the hyenas, jackals and wolves as elements within the cycle of the presidency, said they have personal interest other than that of president.
The human right activist and politician who spoke with journalists who paid him a Sallah homage said the need for the president to overhaul his cabinet now more than ever before cannot be over-emphasised.
Sani who is the Senate Committee Chairman on Local and Foreign Debts, described those he wants sent packingÂ as â€œthe mafias that exists withinÂ the presidency whose intents are different from that of the president himself, but they are part of what is called presidency.â€
According to him, â€œOne thing the president needs to do which is very important is a need for him to take a proactive stand in order to reset his presidency by looking at his cabinet in its totality. Those who have failed should be shown the way out and those who have not been able to perform satisfactorily should be replaced or reshuffled.
â€œBut it is time for president to throw some people out of his cabinet and change the portfolio of some of them so they can help him to perform better. There is mid term fatigue that exists and the only way out is to bring in capable hands.
â€œIf the first appointment into office was to appease the political interest, I think the president now should appoint those who are capable of delivering the mission, the vision and the programme of his own administration.â€
Sani who is also the President of Civil Rights Congress (CRC) in Nigeria further said,Â â€œThere is a message Iâ€™m sending toÂ the president to fumigate and disinfect theÂ presidency in the general interest of his own government and also the country as a whole.â€
