Femi Adesina Speaks On Reason Why Buhari Sacked Ministers

(AFRICAN EXAMINER) – Femi Adesina, presidential spokesperson, has stated that the sacking of two ministers and the reshuffling that followed is a way of President Buhari to reinvigorate his administration.

Adesina disclosed this while speaking on Sunrise Daily, a Channels Television programme on Thursday,  saying  that the ministers were not removed because of weak or poor performance but to consolidate on “legacy performance”.

“Matter of fact is that the president said he had reviewed the performance of the cabinet and needed to reinvigorate for the last run. He said he wanted to consolidate on legacy performance and projects,” he said.

“He needed some reinvigoration but he didn’t say anything about weak or poor performance.”

He also stated that the two ministries that are affected have areas that need to be  improved  on  the president’s action must have been informed by the desire to revamp these areas.

“If you look at the nine priority areas, you will see that as much as the ministers did in my own esteem, there are areas of improvement in those two sectors,” he said.

“The president must have what he wants to achieve in those two areas within the 20 months left in government and maybe that is why he did what he did. But it was by no means a red card on their performance.”

It could be recalled that on September 1, President Muhammadu Buhari announced the sacking of two of ministers from his government. They were, Saleh Mamman, minister of power, and Sabo Nanono, minister of agriculture and rural development.

Mohammad Abubakar, minister of environment, is expected to assume office as the minister of agriculture and rural development, while Abubakar Aliyu, the minister of state for works and housing, will take over as the minister of power.
