President Bola Tinubu is gearing up for a cabinet reshuffle soon, according to insiders.
Sources suggest that the President is considering changes due to some appointees struggling and being ill-prepared for their roles.
In November, Tinubu warned against underperformance during a Cabinet Retreat, emphasizing accountability by having members sign a bond.
The President, seeking improved performance, tasked his Special Adviser on Policy Coordination to activate the “Presidential Delivery Tracker” to monitor cabinet members’ achievements.
Recent corruption allegations involving two ministers, Olubunmi Tunji-Ojo and Dr. Betta Edu, may contribute to the impending changes.
Edu has been suspended, and Tunji-Ojo is linked to a firm receiving substantial fees related to a controversial contract.
Though specific ministers to be replaced are unconfirmed, it’s speculated that up to five could be replaced.
Additionally, the Ministry of Labour and Employment is expected to have a new minister following Simon Bako Lalong’s resignation.
