Sani Urges Buhari to Reshuffle Cabinet


By John Shiklam in Kaduna

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 packing  as “the mafias that exists within  the presidency whose intents are different from that of the president himself, but they are part of what is called presidency.”

According to him, “One 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.

“But 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.

“If 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.”

Sani who is also the President of Civil Rights Congress (CRC) in Nigeria further said,  “There is a message I’m sending to  the president to fumigate and disinfect the  presidency in the general interest of his own government and also the country as a whole.”
