Buhari Sacks Agriculture, Power Ministers

President Muhammadu Buhari has sacked the Ministers of Agriculture, Mohammed Sabo Nanono, and Minister of Power, Maman Saleh.

Buhari’s Special Adviser on Media & Publicity, Femi Adesina, made the announcement Wednesday.

Adesina said affected ministers have been replaced with the Ministers of Environment, Mohammed Mahmoud Abubakar and State, Works and Housing, Abubakar Aliyu.

According to him, the changes were sequel to the “tradition of subjecting our projects and programs implementation to independent and critical self-review,” through sector reporting during cabinet meetings and at retreats.

He added that, “these significant review steps have helped to identify and strengthen weak areas, close gaps, build cohesion and synergy in governance, manage the economy and improve the delivery of public good to Nigerians.”
