Nigeria’s President, Muhammadu Buhari has come out to say that the Minister of Agriculture, Mohammed Nanono and his Power counterpart, Saleh Mamman were sacked to reinvigorate his cabinet and consolidate legacy achievements.

He recently revealed this via a statement, and Nigerians have been reacting.

According to him, the contributions of the ministers just weren’t good enough and they had to be dismissed after an independent and critical self-review of their performance.

He added that the sackings of the ministers will definitely close gaps, build cohesion and synergy in governance.

His words, “These significant review steps have helped to identify and strengthen weak areas, close gaps.”

“On Wednesday 21st August, 2019 the current Federal Executive Council was sworn-in after a rigorous retreat to bring returning and new members up to speed on the accomplishments, challenges and lessons drawn from my first term in Office and to emphasise the nine priority areas of government for the second term.”

“Two years and some months into the second term, the tradition of subjecting our projects and programs implementation to independent and critical self-review has taken firm roots through sector Reporting during Cabinet meetings and at Retreats.”

“I must commend this cabinet for demonstrating unparalleled resilience that helped the government to navigate the disruption to global systems and governance occasioned by the emergence of COVID-19 shortly after inauguration. The weekly Federal Executive Council meetings was not spared because the traditional mode was altered.”

“As we are all aware, change is the only factor that is constant in every human endeavour and as this administration approaches its critical phase in the second term, I have found it essential to reinvigorate this cabinet in a manner that will deepen its capacity to consolidate legacy achievements.”
