Emerging reports, have revealed that President Muhammadu Buhari, has given Acting President, Yemi Osinbajo, a marching order to reshuffle his cabinet.
Recall, that Osinbajo on Tuesday, traveled to London, where he met with Buhari behind closed doors.
Osinbajo, who has since returned to the country, in the early hours of Wednesday, left for London at about 3:25 p.m., local time, shortly after presiding over the Quarterly Presidential Business Forum, which held at the Presidential Villa.
A reliable Presidency source, confirmed that Buhari is not comfortable with some of his close Aides, who have undermined the Acting President in his absence, and may have handed him clear instructions to kick them out of the government.
