Buhari’s cabinet members who are switching allegiance to Tinubu, says Garba Shehu

The senior special assistant, media and publicity to President Muhammadu Buhari, Garba Shehu, has revealed that some staff of the present administration has started to switch allegiance to the incoming government, a move he described as ‘human nature.’

According to him, it is very normal for people to switch allegiance but noted that the way with which people are switching their allegiance to the incoming administration is different from what ex-president, Goodluck Jonathan, experienced.

This according to Shehu was because Jonathan was patriotic.
