Osinbajo Gets Buhari's Approval to Replace Non-performing Ministers and Cabinet Members

Acting President Yemi Osinbajo has reportedly gotten the nod from President Muhammadu Buhari to reshuffle his cabinet and remove those that are not performing well.

As part of the fallout of the meeting with President Muhammadu Buhari in London, a cabinet reshuffle may be carried out soon by Acting President Yemi Osinbajo.

According to the Nation, Acting President Yemi Osinbajo is believed to have secured Buhari’s approval at the meeting to effect changes in the cabinet.

Quoting unnamed sources, the newspaper said on Thursday that some ministers may be dropped.

“The imminent action is believed to be delaying the inauguration of the two ministers-designate already confirmed by the Senate,’’ it reported.

It said that some ministers may also swap portfolios in the new plan.

The impending movement, it said, had caused anxiety among members of the Federal Executive Council (FEC).

Buhari, it said, had endorsed all the measures taken by the Acting President to keep the nation united.

President Buhari currently in London on medical vacation “is in high spirit and is doing very well and recuperating,” Osinbajo told Nigerians on Wednesday shortly after he returned from London where he had a meeting with the President.

Osinbajo who visited the president on Tuesday in London said on Wednesday that, “we had a very good time” and good conversation.

The Acting President told state House correspondents that he briefed Buhari on the developments in Nigeria. In London, Osinbajo reportedly spent one hour at the Abuja House, where President has been staying since his arrival in the British capital on 8 May.
