Nigeria – Senator Bukola Saraki and Yakubu Dogara’s victory at the recent national assembly elections may have altered the President Muhammadu Buhari’s cabinet consideration, PUNCH reports.
President Buhari was said to be waiting for the outcome of the election before making announcement on key appointments in his government.
According to a source, “President Buhari is seriously tinkering with the original list he has for political offices. This is because the emergence of the officers of the National Assembly has affected the original list he has.
“Though he was expecting some elements of surprise in the election, but I think he never bargained for a total disregard to party directive in the election of the officers.”
So far, in the distribution of offices, only the South-South region has not benefitted.
