Buhari’s Cabinet: President Meets Northern Power Brokers

President Muhammadu Buhari has met with key northern power brokers and close associates and loyalists over his proposed ministerial and Special Advisers (SAs)’ list.

The meeting with the northern leaders was to get their views on how to pick the best hands and brains that would help him run his administration. The meeting took place at Buhari’s private residence in Kaduna shortly after he returned from South Africa on Tuesday.

The meeting with the northern power brokers is coming on the heels of similar meetings with some former Presidents and Heads of State, including former President Olusegun Obasanjo, and former Vice President Atiku Abubakar.

Buhari had equally consulted with prominent people in the southern region, including the former governor of Lagos State and national leader of the APC, Bola Tinubu.
