It has been revealed that President Bola Ahmed Tinubu may nullify some of the last-minute appointments made by his predecessor, Muhammadu Buhari, before leaving office.
Sources have indicated that plans are underway to replace some of the appointees appointed by the previous administration, including those appointed by Buhari’s ministers and heads of agencies.
The move is said to be a gradual process, and the exact number of affected appointees is not yet known.
The source said, “Some of the last-minute appointments by some ex-ministers will be nullified. It will be gradual, so I can’t exactly tell you the number of those who will be affected. As you know, some of them were done in a hurry. The appointments are being reviewed. I can confirm that to you.”
Some of these appointments were made hastily, and Tinubu’s administration is currently reviewing them.
Already, some of Buhari’s last-minute appointees and long-serving appointees have been sacked by Tinubu.
For example, in June, Tinubu dissolved the boards of all federal government agencies, including some whose members were recently approved by the Buhari administration.
