The Nigerian Kitchen cabinets

Shadowadow government is a family of conspiracy theories based on the notion that real and actual political power resides not with

publicly elected representatives but with private individuals who are exercising power behind scenes.

Buhari's key advisers include: his nephew

Mamman Daura , businessman Ismaila Isa Funtua , political operator Baba Gana Kingibe,

Abba Kyari the Chief of Staff to the President; and from the late stages of his first term, Boss Mustapha the Secretary to the Government of the Federation . Empowering his kitchen cabinet after his stated his preference for cabinet members seeking meetings or consultation to direct such requests through the chief of staff or through the government secretary.

Since the Fourth Republic , ministerial positions are legally required to be composed of a federal ethno-demographic character with a minister representing each state of the federation. A result of this has created the outcome of political considerations as an important factor in nominating ministers as local party officials lacking in merit jostle for cabinet positions. Nomination into Buhari's cabinet has been influenced by those political considerations and also closeness to the president and his inner cabinet.In August 2019, the president named his cabinet of predominantly male members with an average years of 60 and dominated by political actors or those close to the president.
