President Buhari sacks two ministers from his cabinet


President Muhammadu Buhari has fired the Ministers of Agriculture, Mohammed Sabo Nanono, and Mamman Saleh, his power counterpart.

Presidential spokesman, Femi Adesina, announced this today at a briefing in the Presidential Villa, Abuja.

He said the duo have been replaced with the Ministers of Environment, Mohammed Mahmoud Abubakar, and Minister of State, Works and Housing, Abubakar Aliyu, respectively.

The President said the changes were sequel to the tradition of subjecting the administration projects and programs implementation to independent and critical self-review through sector reporting during cabinet meetings and at retreats.

Saleh Mamman hails from Taraba State while Sabo Nanono is from Kano State.

Buhari is not known for reshuffling his cabinet. During his first term between 2015 and 2019, the ministers who left the cabinet resigned on their own.
