Buhari may sack ministers

24 May 2016, 15:35

Abuja - There are strong indications that President Muhammadu Buhari may reshuffle his cabinet anytime from now, reports Nigerian Pilot.

The President is under immense pressure to take this step due to reports of feud among his appointees, non-performance of many of them and allegations of corrupt practices against some of his aides and cabinet members.

According to presidency sources, the President is really pained that persons recommended by his party and friends of the government are not performing.

Buhari is said to be worried about the loads of complaints from the Nigerian public and the international community against some of his ministers.

The President is equally worried that a year into his administration most appointees have nothing on the score card to show as their modest achievements in furtherance of the administration’s agenda.

Naij reports that five ministers may be replaced in the imminent shake-up.

They are Geoffrey Onyeama, Minister of Foreign Affairs; Aisha Alhassan, Minister of Women Affairs; Adebayo Shittu, Minister of Communications; Lai Mohammed ,Minister of Information and Culture and Kayode Fayemi, Minister of Solid Minerals
