It has been revealed that President Muhammadu Buhari is likely to fire ministers who are not performing and are not loyal to his administration at the Federal Executive meeting this week.
A hot name in the list is alleged to be that of the Minister of Women Affairs and Social Development, Senator Aisha Alhassan (Mama Taraba) over her latest comment publicly supporting former vice president, Atiku Abubakar.
Many people have called on Alhassan to resign as it is not possible for her to support Atiku and still be a minister in Buhari’s adminstration. Ogun state Governor Ibikunle Amosun spoke out calling on the Minister to honourable resign before it is too late.
On the matter of sacking other ministers, a report by Daily Post revealed that President Buhari has given a thought to rejigging his cabinet for effeciency and performance. However, a reliable source told Daily Post that an “outright sack of ministers was in doubt.”
The source added: “You know PMB has not really been in the country this year; he might have reshuffled before now. But recent episodes have raised the question of how much appointees are committed to their job.
“But with the declaration by Mama Taraba, the president is likely to remove those he feels have underperformed as well as those who are not loyal.
“It is not really a hard task for him. He appointed all the security heads, so all he needs to do is give directive for reports of movements, meetings and calls made by his appointees”.
