The Nigerian leader, Dr. Goodluck Jonathan, has shelved the dissolution of his cabinet, News Express can disclose this afternoon.

President Jonathan had been expected to submit a list of his new ministers to the Senate for ratification last week but that never happened.

“Cabinet shake-up is no more on the President’s cards for now; it won’t happen this month and may not happen until at least in a month’s time,” a Presidency source disclosed.

The source explained that Jonathan is preoccupied with other matters at the moment. Though the source did not drop a hint on what the President is preoccupied with, News Express reports that they may not be unconnected with the high-wire politics in the ruling Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), which led to the ouster, on Thursday, of Alhaji Bamanga Tukur as National Chairman and a search for his replacement, as well as the on-going shake-up in the military, which led to the sudden change of all the Service Chiefs on Thursday.  

Apart from changing several of his ministers in the impending cabinet shake-up, President Jonathan is also expected to finally fill the 12 vacancies created when ministers were dropped in a minor cabinet shake-up about seven months ago.
