Ndume Raises Alarm Over Potential Cabal In Tinubu’s Govt

Senator Ali Ndume, has raised the alarm over what he called an emerging cabal in the administration of President Bola Ahmed Tinubu. Says “The president must act swiftly and dismantle the cartel.”

Senator Ndume, who commended President Tinubu for his suspension of embattled Minister of Humanitarian Affairs and Poverty Alleviation, Betta Edu, for proper investigation of financial sleaze in her ministry, however, declared 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 cautioned that, if not curtailed, the emerging political cabal could destabilise the administration of President Tinubu.

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 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.

“The President needs to look deep and flush out those involved in mismanaging the funds meant for humanitarian assistance.
We’re hopeful that the President will take more decisive actions in the future.”
