Reshuffle Your Cabinet for Better Governance! – Jimoh Ibrahim Tells Tinubu 


Afor Kenneth

A Senator, Jimoh Ibrahim, serving on the Appropriations Committee, has urged President Bola Tinubu to consider reshuffling his cabinet by recommending the dissolution and replacement of certain ministers.

“You have to dissolve the cabinet. You have to come up with knowledgeable people. The cabinet is too cold,” he said on Channels Television’s Politics Today programme on Wednesday.

Ibrahim, representing the Ondo South Senatorial District, expressed disappointment that the current ministers do not meet the standards required for optimal national performance, particularly evident in the country’s economic challenges during the President’s first year in office.

”You have to dissolve the cabinet, you have to come up with knowledgeable people, the cabinet is too cold and some of them accused of corruption should be dropped”

Nigeria is currently facing complex socio-economic challenges due to the implementation of the new administration’s policies, particularly the removal of petrol subsidies and the unification of foreign exchange windows. The resultant tripling of energy costs has led to a crisis of high living expenses, with unprecedented levels of food inflation.

Despite assurances from the government, there has been little relief for the populace, as additional policies such as hikes in electricity tariffs and the imposition of a cybersecurity levy on electronic transactions have been met with criticism from labor unions, pro-democracy activists, and civil society groups.

Upon assuming office last May, President Tinubu and his deputy, Kashim Shettima, pledged to overhaul the country’s economy and provide the dividends of democracy to Nigeria’s over 200 million citizens. Tinubu appointed a cabinet of 48 ministers last August, approximately three months after succeeding his party colleague, former President Muhammadu Buhari.

Ibrahim suggested that some ministers facing allegations of corruption should be replaced. “Failure to do so would mean carrying their burdens, which would be detrimental to our country,” he cautioned the President.

Ibrahim said the President has a “fantastic strategy” with a faulty structure. He lamented that the inefficient structure has “arrested” the strategy. “Do you think the current system can carry the strategy?” he asked rhetorically.
