Recently, the Minister of Power, Works and Housing, and former Lagos state governor, Babatunde Fashola got a backlash from Nigerians over the increase in electricity tariff.

The Nigeria Labour Congress protested the hike in the tariff, a situation that led to the reversal of the increase by the National Assembly.

The Minister of Finance, Kemi Adeosun also came under a lot of criticism for the economic crisis experienced in the country.

Many people felt she has not handled the economic crisis well giving room to the depreciation of the naira in the parallel market.

Another minster that has been in the eye of the storm is the Minister of Youth and Sports, Solomon Dalung. The minister has been accused of focusing too much on football to the detriment of other sports.

There has been speculations from some quarters that President Muhammadu Buhari might be forced to reshuffle the cabinet very soon.
