The senator representing Kaduna Central senatorial district, Senator Shehu Sani, has called on President Muhammadu Buhari to reshuffle his cabinet.
According to Daily Trust, Senator Sani made the call during an interaction with journalists in Kaduna recently.
The human rights activist turned politician said the president needs to act fast because “there are hyenas, jackals and wolves within the cycle of the presidency that have personal interests other than that of Mr President.”

He continued: “One thing the president needs to do which is very important is 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.”
The senator said if the first appointment was to appease political interests, then it is time the president appointed those who are capable of delivering the mission, vision and programme of his administration.
“There is a message I’m sending to Mr President to fumigate and disinfect the presidency in the general interest of his own government and also the country as a whole,” he added.
Meanwhile, Rivers state governor, Nyesom Wike, has said the anti-corruption campaign of the federal government cannot be effective because of the inability of national institutions to act independently.
Governor Wike made the comment during a courtesy visit by officials of Chatham House, The Royal Institute of International Affairs, United Kingdom, to Government House, Port Harcourt, on Wednesday, August 30.
The governor stated that political influence has weakened the fight against corruption, stressing that it is difficult to fight corruption when the institutions are weak.
