Presidential spokesman, Femi Adesina, on Thursday, said that President Muhammadu Buhari may dissolve his cabinet before May 29 to pave the way for the reconstitution of a new one.

Fielding questions on ARISE News, Mr Adesina stressed that since the mandate of the present government lapses after four years, it is incumbent on the president to dissolve the cabinet in order to reconstitute a new one.

“One thing about governance is that the first mandate was for four years and it lapses on May 29th, and shortly before May 29th, the president is likely going to officially dissolve government, that is the way it is usually done.

“He says thank you to everybody he has called to work with him and then, he dissolves that government officially. Then when he is inaugurated for a second term, he now reconstitutes government. He appoints his personal aides, he forms the cabinet, he appoints people to fill other positions,” Mr Adesina explained.
