Tinubu told to sack his ministers immediately

Meanwhile, reported that Senator Jimoh Ibrahim asked President Tinubu to dissolve his cabinet (consisting of the VP, ministers, SGF, and the chief of staff) if he hopes to achieve his 'Renewed Hope' agenda.

According to Ibrahim, the present cabinet is "too cold" and some of the presidential appointees accused of corruption should be dropped.

A longtime political powerbroker in Nigeria, President Tinubu promised to fix Nigeria's challenges when he assumed office in May 2023.
