Senator Ahmed Bola Tinubu, the globally recognized man, and the last man standing as one billionaire called him, is already too many steps into the Presidential Home of Nigeria’s Presidents, the Aso Rock Villa; that he will be for the next four years as a resident and tenant.
As a man known and credited to have changed the structure of Lagos state into a global mega city and state, many will gather around him to be part of the inner, middle and outer cabinet of his administration. Surely, one must not forget his right-hand person is his son, Seyi Tinubu.
Nigeria is Africa’s largest economy and a country that will not be an easy task to rule. The official inauguration day is on 29th May, but handover had already taken place on the 25th of May 2023 and the baton of GCFR was handed to him.
There have been various allegations and cases against his victory but with the presence scenario, our article is based on the calibre of those seeking to be in his cabinet as well as those seen by our team of private investigators.
Nevertheless, the findings and reports are certain to add credence to his administration and foreign or western’s nations ‘ acceptance of the desire to make Nigeria work and put aside doubts on the legitimacy of the President-elect and his party, the APC. The government needs to be free from the trouble of securing recognition internationally.
This February 2023 general election in Nigeria is judged to be the first that produces a President without the input of the military or armed forces and one that the electorate are gaining ground of their power and authority to demand for justice, equity and fairness. Even as the incoming government continues to be mired in constitutional crisis.
Asiwaju’s incoming cabinet will say a lot about the direction of Nigeria, his government and her foreign policies. Getting the right team together, internal kitchen cabinet, middle team and those to represent him outside the country will reassure both the Nigerian citizens and the international community that a new dawn is here for Nigeria and Nigerians.
Our reports indicated that the strategy will be to combine professional politicians (former Governors and Ministers etc) with a new breed of politicians who are still very much seen and recognised on their skills, leadership, entrepreneurial knowledge and networks.
Nigeria as a nation need the speed of a cheetah, the calmness of a dove, the smartness and intelligence of a chimpanzee, and the coat of arms features which are the dignity of the white horses, the fertilization of bountiful harvest as represented by the shield and the final ones are embodiments of the eagle – beauty, bravery, courage, determination, honour, pride, and strength.
“You see, Senator Asiwaju, the Jagaban and president-elect knows the people that will deliver what Nigerians seriously need in this hour and days ahead. He has planned many things that he is going to do if given the opportunity and that chance opportunity is with him now. He wants to serve Nigeria and bring much needed positive legacies and policies that will leave his name in gold centuries to come. He wants to achieve more than acknowledged done with Lagos state for Nigeria” a source confined who is close to the president-elect.

In the face of strong headwinds, President-elect Tinubu will need to appoint strong heads in order to prevail | The Guardian Nigeria News – Nigeria and World News — News — The Guardian Nigeria News – Nigeria and World News
Chief Adebayo Olawale Edun
Sanusi Lamido Sanusi
Prince Malik Ado-Ibrahim
General Sulaiman Dili Aliyu:
Dr. Ahmed Tijjani
The sources and our team of researchers and investigators said those not lucky to secure ministerial slots and offices will be drafted into other powerful committees as well as being able to be appointed into other strong agencies, parastatals and commissions, bearing in mind Nigeria has more than 100 embassies and high commissions around the world bringing in appointments as High Commissioners and Ambassadors among others.
The last and beginning point of view is how the government and President Tinubu post his representatives to foreign nations for Nigeria’s image, diplomacy and rebranding which is now lying on economic, business-like and garnering investments opportunities. Nations are competing against each other more than ever before and ambassadors representing Nigeria in places such as the United States; India with Amb Ahmed; The United Kingdom with Amb. Isola Sarafa; High Commissioner of Nigeria to South Africa, Italy & the Vatican (because of the perceived religious angling); Canada, Germany, Ukraine, Malaysia and Russia have shown commitments to the country’s performance and must not be rushed out bearing the strategic positions of the Western Nations towards 2023 elections, the war in Europe and the japa syndrome.
They also indicated the likelihood of having other personalities based on their merits, skills and knowledge from other parties into his government as already seen with his meetings with political executives from other parties. Forming a small unity government for the sake of Nigeria rather than the party’s path.
