The presidency has officially confirmed that the Acting President, Yemi Osinbajo, has already compiled the list of names of Ministers, to be sacked, any time from now.
This came based on the fallout of Tuesday’s London meeting, between President Muhammadu Buhari and Osinbajo.
We gathered that the looming massive sack and shake-up, has caused anxiety among members of the Federal Executive Council, FEC.
According to top sources, the need to reshuffle the cabinet for “efficiency”, was one of the key issues discussed between the President and the Acting President.
A source who spoke in full confidence, said: “There is a likely shake-up of the cabinet, in line with the new fast-pace focus of the Buhari administration. Some of the Ministers cannot cope with the portfolios assigned to them.
“Some Ministers, were also found to be behind the crisis of confidence between the Executive and the National Assembly.
“So, apart from dropping some, others may swap portfolios for efficiency. It is just some restructuring of the Cabinet, to ensure efficiency.
“Obviously, there is disquiet in the Cabinet on this latest development. I think the likely changes in the Cabinet, accounted for the delay in inaugurating two Ministers-designate.
“I cannot tell you when the changes will be effected, but the Cabinet shake-up came up as an item between the two leaders”, the source said.
