He stated this while speaking on ‘Inside Sources with Laolu Akande,’ a socio-political programme aired on Channels Television on Friday, May 24.

He added that it would be wrong for people to mount pressure on President Tinubu.

“The issue of rejigging the cabinet is the prerogative of the President. The constitution says that the ministers hold their posts at the pleasure of the President because he (Tinubu) is engaging too. He knows the feedback from the people. He knows what to do at the right time and our President today is smart.
“He is not a dullard; he knows what he wants and for what purposes. And I am sure if he deems fit that he has to rejig his cabinet, he will have to do it. That is why you see the ministers correcting themselves. So far, it is a work in progress.”
