Senate Chief Whip, Senator Mohammed Ali Ndume has eulogized the step taken by President Bola Ahmed Tinubu to curtail the growing wing of the presidential cabals within the corridor of power in the country.
Senator Ndume stated this while reacting to decision reached by President Bola Ahmed Tinubu to suspend the Honorable Minister of Humanitarian Affairs and Poverty Alleviation, Betta Edu, for proper investigation of financial sleaze in her Ministry.
Recall that Hon. Betta Edu was suspended by President Tinubu, yesterday, to allow full-scale investigation into the allegation of financial misappropriation of up to N37.1 billion leveled against her ministry.
Reacting to President Tinubu's suspension of Betta Edu, Senator Ali Ndume 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.”
