Just before his widely-acclaimed victory at the poll, the presidency announced that President Muhammadu Buhari would likely dissolve his cabinet before his inauguration for a second term in office.
Even before he is inaugurated for a second time; he is about to reconstitute a government of inclusion that will comprise of those who readily worked for him in the build-up to his second term success. He will surprise many on who he picks as his personal aides and for other offices.
The outcome of the last Presidential and National Assembly Elections have continued to reverberate, but in the South West region, the following are likely to have their names penned down for inclusion in the President's kitchen cabinet. They are Musiliu Obanikoro, Solomon Olamilekan, Wole Aboderin, Professor Borrofrice, Ibikunle Amosun, Kayode Fayemi, Opeyemi Bamidele and Gbemi Saraki from the Northern bloc.
These select few and many more are supposedly the ones to determine what comes to their states at the Presidency, when the power sharing comes to play after the June 12 swearing-in. But in Osun State, there is no particular person that can be pointed at as having worked rigorously for PMB during the campaign, because the APC chieftain, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu has always been the one doing the needful for the state at the Presidency.
Now that everyone is out to know who gets what, many of these stakeholders are knocking their heads to know what is in stock for them; but the names above will feature prominently n the projected cabinet list of Buhari, if the mathematics are in place.
The Tinubu factor is however not to be removed from this calculation, because he played a prominent role in ensuring that Buhari won a re-election. Till the list is finally approved and announced, thos PMB will pick to serve him for the second term will be in the realm of conjectures.
