Senior special assistant to President Muhammadu Buhari on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu recently lashed at those attacking the president for not changing his cabinet since 2015.
Speaking in an interview with newsmen in Abuja on Sunday, Shehu, advised those troubled by the president’s decision to go and start ‘farming’ instead of sitting down to speculate on Buhari’s choice of cabinet.
“The President is the one who wears the shoes. He knows where it pinches. If the President hasn’t sacked his ministers, it means that he wants to continue to work with them.
Maybe those agitating for the sack of the ministers are also looking for a chance to come in to replace those who are there. In that case, then they are driven by selfish motive. As President and Commander-in-Chief, he reserves the right to hire and fire.
The fact that he hasn’t done that does not mean that he does not have the power to do that. I am sure if he wants to do it, he will do it at his own pace and time, but people who want to become ministers, how many ministers can we even appoint in this country?
I think people should just be busy. Let them go and start farming instead of sitting down to speculate whether they can be made minister or not,” he said.
