Put away Hyenas, Jackals in Your Cabinet Now - Senator Shehu Sani Tells Buhari

The senator representing Kaduna Central in the upper chamber of National Assembly, Shehu Sani has called on President Mohammadu Buhari to as matter of urgency fumigate proverbial hyenas, jackals and wolves in his cabinet.

The lawmaker who stated this in an interview with newsmen shortly after his visit to home of destitute in Kaduna earlier in the day said, Mr.  President’s determination to disinfect his cabinet now is the surest way of achieving his vision, mission and programmes for Nigeria.

According to activist turn politician, any cabinet member who is not performing satisfactorily should be thrown out of presidency while competent hands should be brought in now because if the initial appointment was meant to appease political interest, then the time has come to face the reality to avoid disappointing Nigerian masses who voted for All Progressives Congress (APC) based on Mr. President’s personal respect and integrity.

To Sani, “everybody knows who the Lion is. As regarding the Hyenas, Jackals and wolves, I think I will leave that for Mr. President to mention them if he want to.

“But in general terms, these are the elements within the cycle of presidency that have personal interest other than that of Mr. President. And they are called in broader sense as cabal. These are the mafias that exists within presidency. Like I said, their intent is different from that of president himself but they are part of what is called presidency.

“One thing the President need 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 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 Mr. 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.

“There is a message I’m sending to Mr. President to fumigate and disinfect presidency in the general interest of his own government and also the country as a whole”, he added
