The presidency has stated that President Muhammadu Buhari would likely dissolve his cabinet before his inauguration for a second term in office on May 29.
Daily Trust reports that Buhari won his re-election, polling over 15 million votes to defeat his main challenger and presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Alhaji Atiku Abubakar.
Continentour.com.ng gathered that Femi Adesina, the spokesman to President Buhari, in an interview on Arise TV, said the president is expected to officially dissolve his cabinet at the expiration of the first tenure on May 29.
He said: “That mandate lapses on May 29, and shortly before May 29, the president is likely going to officially dissolve his government. That is the way it is usually done.
“He says thank you to everybody that he has called to work with him and then he dissolves that government officially.
“Then when he is inaugurated for a second time, he now reconstitutes a government; he appoints his personal aides, he forms his cabinet, he appoints other people to fill other positions.”
Meanwhile, Continentour.com.ng had previously reported that the UK government congratulated President Muhammadu Buhari on securing a second term as president.
A statement from the British High Commission in Abuja on Wednesday, February 27, quoted the minister of state for Africa, Harriett Baldwin, as saying,
“I offer my congratulations to President Buhari on securing a second term as the Nigerian president.
“The UK is a long-standing friend and partner of Nigeria and the Nigerian people and a stable and prosperous Nigeria benefits Africa and the world.”
Baldwin commended Nigerians for their resilience and commitment to democracy.
