President Muhammadu Buhari has given the reason behind a reshuffle in the cabinet he formed on August 21, 2019.
It was reported earlier that Mohammed Sabo Nanono, Minister of Agriculture and Rural Development, and Sale Mamman, Minister of Power, were fired.
They were replaced by Dr. Mohammad Mahmood Abubakar, Minister of Environment, and Abubakar D. Aliyu, Minister of State, Works & Housing.
Speaking through Femi Adesina, his media aide, the president said the changes were sequel to the “tradition of subjecting our projects and programmes implementation to independent and critical self-review”.
He said this was done 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.”
