President Buhari Says He Refused To Sack Ministers In 4 Years Due to This Reason
President Buhari revealed the main reasons why he didn’t sack some ministers in his cabinet for his four-year tenure despite forces from Nigerians.
President Buhari addressed this issue while giving a speech at a valedictory session which took place in the state house, Abuja.
Based on the speculation on what Nigerians are saying, the president failed to dissolve his cabinet on May 22, hinging it on the unique skills and strength that each of the ministers has.
Below are what President Buhari said at the valedictory session
“Although today is our last council meeting, I expect all of you to continue working until Tuesday, May 28, 2019, when you will officially hand over your schedules to your respective permanent secretaries. Your handing over letters should be submitted to the Office of the Secretary to the Government of the Federation.
“I want you all to leave this meeting proud to have served your nation to the best of your ability. You should be proud to have been part of the government that liberated the local government areas previously under Boko Haram rule.
“You should be proud to have contributed to our food security and economic diversification agenda which led to the revival of our rural agrarian economy. You should be proud to have been part of the team that developed the Economic Recovery and Growth Plan which led Nigeria exiting its worst recession in decades.
“You should be proud to have introduced the social investment programme that enhanced livelihoods of millions of Nigerians. You should be proud to have participated in settling outstanding pensions of many senior citizens abandoned by previous governments while supporting state governments to meet their salary arrears.
