President Muhammadu Buhari has relieved the Minister of Agriculture and Rural Development, Sabo Nanono, and his Power counterpart, Engr. Sale Mamman, of their appointments.
LEADERSHIP recall that the cabinet was formed on August 21, 2019.
In a statement to cabinet members during the Federal Executive Council (FEC) meeting on Wednesday, President Buhari announced that Nanono and Engr. Mamman were leaving the cabinet.
In the same vein, Dr. Mohammad Mahmood Abubakar, Minister of Environment, was redeployed to assume office as the Minister of Agriculture & Rural Development, while Engr. Abubakar D. Aliyu, Minister of State, Works & Housing will now be the Minister of Power.
The President said the changes were sequel to the “tradition of subjecting our projects and programs implementation to independent and critical self-review” 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.”
