The presidency has proudly given its voice to the successes of President Muhammadu Buhari’s second cabinet after one year of inaugurating it.
From its Twitter page on Friday, August 21, the presidency recalled that exactly one year ago in 2019, the president set up a new cabinet to run for another four years after he won the last presidential election.
Among the institutions established by the president to kick-start his second administration are ministries, including Police Affairs and Humanitarian Affairs, Disaster Management and Social Development.
The presidency also mentioned that President Buhari, apart from signing the finance bill to reform domestic tax laws and introduce tax incentives for investments in infrastructure, he also returned the budget implementation cycle to January-to-December by signing the 2020 appropriation bill in 2019.
The president was also celebrated for releasing the sum of N10 billion for the upgrade of the Akanu Ibiam International Airport, Enugu and also for ordering a forensic audit of the Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC).
Added to this, President Buhari approved the release of N10 billion grant to the Lagos state government and N5 billion grant to the Nigeria Center for Disease Control (NCDC), to support the Coronavirus response.
He also gave presidential assent to a bill that amended the Companies and Allied Matters Act (CAMA).

Meanwhile, Legit.ng reported that the suspension of Adebayo Somefun, managing director of Nigeria Social Insurance Trust Fund (NSITF), by the minister of labour and employment, Chris Ngige, had again raised specks of dust in President Buhari’s administration.
Somefun, as Legit.ng gathers, was handed immediate suspension effective from Thursday, July 2, alongside Jasper Ikedi-Azuatalam, the executive director of finance and investment, and Olukemi Nelson who is the executive director of operations.
Also, amid growing dialogue on who would become Nigeria’s next chief of staff, members of the federal executive council were reportedly pushing for the appointment of one of them as Abba Kyari’s successor.
Some of the ministers who want one of them to be chosen have set the wheel on the fast lane in order to convince President Muhammadu Buhari that one of them is capable of taking the baton where Kyari dropped it.
