President Muhammadu Buhari will likely dissolve his cabinet before his inauguration for a second term in office.
Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) said Buhari won his re-election, polling over 15 million votes to defeat Atiku Abubakar, his main challenger and presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
Mr. Femi Adesina, spokesman of 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.
“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 reconstitute a government; he appoints his personal aides, he forms his cabinet, he appoints other people to fill other positions,” he said.
