Tinubu must abolish looming cabal within his cabinet — Sen Ndume

The Senator representing Borno South and Chief Whip of the Senate, Mohammed Ali Ndume, says President Bola Tinubu must end the looming cabals in his presidency.

Ndume stated this while speaking in an interview with The Tribune.

The senator, who lauded President Tinubu for suspending his embattled Minister of Humanitarian Affairs and Poverty Alleviation, Betta Edu, for proper investigation of financial sleaze in her ministry, however, pointed out that the axed Minister did not act alone but with connivance with certain individuals who have since formed a cartel in the Tinubu Presidency.

He warned that, if not curbed, the looming political cabal could destabilize the administration of President Tinubu.

According to Ndume, the removal of the minister would send a strong signal to other ministers in Tinubu’s cabinet that their principal would not tolerate corruption.

Ndume noted that the move will bring back confidence in his government, and Nigerians will begin to take his administration seriously.

He said, “What President Tinubu has done is very timely. The suspension of the Minister of Humanitarian Affairs is a welcome development. It will allow the relevant agencies to conduct a proper investigation.

“Some people in the same position Tinubu is in would not have acted. But as the leader in charge, he acted swiftly, and the minister has been suspended. We should commend the president. This is something Nigerians should commend.

“But the president should not stop there. There is an emerging political cartel within the corridors of power. The president must not act swiftly and dismantle the cartel.

“If they’re not stopped, they’ll be stronger and worse than the cabal. The president must not allow that to happen. I don’t think what the minister did was an isolated case. I don’t think she acted alone.”
