Chairman of the Presidential Advisory Committee Against Corruption (PACAC), Professor Itse Sagay, has told President Muhammadu Buhari to sack those he described as “the cabal” in his cabinet.
According to him, they had hindered the progress of the administration.
Sagay made the call Wednesday evening, after delivering the convocation lecture of the Federal University of Technology (FUT), Minna, Niger State.
“Cabal has no business being in the presidency and as such, they should be fished out and flushed out,” he told reporters.
He, however, declined to mention the names of those in the cabal, but insisted that “they are not helpful to the government, everybody is complaining about them.”
Sagay also advised that “Nigeria should stay with President Buhari and Vice President Yemi Osinbajo” if the country was to get to the promised land.
“Buhari and Osinbajo have absolute integrity, if we don’t use them now I don’t know when next we will have leaders like them. All my hopes are on Buhari in 2019.”
He, however, said the president should be firmer, adding that “we need a little dose of autocracy if we want to develop.”
