Kingsley Moghalu, a former presidential candidate of the Young Progressive Party, YPP, has reacted to the sack of two ministers by President Muhammadu Buhari.
Moghalu said the president’s decision was the right thing but came late
Buhari had sacked the Minister of Agriculture, Mohammed Sabo Nanono, and Minister of Power, Maman Saleh.
Spokesman to the president, Femi Adesina, had made the announcement Wednesday.
According to Adesina, Nanono and Saleh have been replaced with the Ministers of Environment, Mohammed Mahmoud Abubakar and State, Works and Housing, Abubakar Aliyu.
In a series of tweets, the former Deputy Governor of Central Bank of Nigeria, CBN, accused the Buhari government of weak performance.
He wrote: “After six years of weak performance by his govt, Pre @Mbuhari has reportedly fired two Ministers (Agric &Power) who, presumably in his judgment deserved to go.
“It’s the correct decision but very late in the day. As President of Nigeria, I will ensure accountability from Day 1.
“I will have four key offices in the Presidency: Office of National Strategy, Risk Management Office, Performance Management Office, and Talent Management Office.
“The PMO will measure the performance of political appointees constantly. Sack, early in the day, awaits non-performers.”
