Dr. Garus Gololo, a senior member of the ruling All Progressive Congress (APC), has encouraged President Muhammad Buhari not to be distracted in his efforts to get rid of some of his administration’s cabinet members in order to reposition his government.
While reacting to a report credited to an online media on Friday, Gololo said it would do the President a lot of good if he fired Attorney-General of the Federation (AGF) and Minister of Justice, Mr. Abubakar Malami (SAN), as well as other Ministers who he said had not lived up to expectations.
Sahara Reporters had on Thursday, in an exclusive report, stated that President Buhari had perfected arrangements to relief Mr. Malami and 15 other Ministers in his cabinet, before December 2021
The online newspaper also reported that Malami was secretly lobbying the “cabal” in Aso Villa, to prevail on the President to spare him.
In response, Gololo advised Buhari not to listen to Malami or anyone else in his effort to assemble a strong government.
“Let the President fire them – both Malami and the other ministers who aren’t doing their jobs. The APC was founded on sound philosophy, and anyone who has nothing to give the President in terms of capacity to enable him to keep his promises and live up to the ideology’s aspirations should be shown the door.
“I shall encourage the President to ignore everyone, including the Malami himself.” Allow him to maintain his focus and reposition his government. No one should be able to take his attention away from him.
“I would even prefer if the President fired the Secretary to the Government of the Federation and the National Security Adviser, in addition to Malami and other members of his administration who have harmed his performance via their own actions or inactions,” Gololo stated.
President Buhari had removed two of his serving ministers on September 2, 2021, with the promise of continuing with the reshuffle of his cabinet.
