7 Ministers Buhari May Sack Soon

In the spirit of celebrating Democracy day on May 29th, 2016, President Muhammadu Buhari advised Nigerians to pass a verdict on the performance of his appointed officials so that he will know if he should change them.

The president was quoted as saying, “I am waiting for the newspapers to tell me the performance of my ministers and whether I should make changes”., while fielding questions from journalists at the Statehouse.

Meanwhile, here is a look at the performances of these Ministers in their various ministries and what might make President Muhammadu Buhari to have second thought on their performance, as c0mpiled by Nigerian Bulletin.

They are:

1. Minister of Housing, Power and Roads, Mr. Babatunde Raji Fashola: Babatunde Fashola was known for his versatile and hard-working spirit as the then Governor of Lagos State.

The minister seems over-powered due to the 'giant' ministries allotted to him by President Muhamamdu Buhari.

Since Fashola's assumption as the Minister of the three-combined ministries, it seems the glory of the Lagos born Senior Advocate of Nigeria is gradually fading away.

The President needs to help Fashola offload some of the loads on his head to allow room for optimal performance and long life.

2. Minister of Education, Adamu Adamu: The Minister of Education may be on the watch list of President Muhamamdu Buhari if the president listens to the impulse and messages from the public. The controversies trailing the Ministers' pronouncement and infringement on Varsities' policy and autonomy. The issues of Post Jamb registration, battle for the survival of Vice Chancellorship in tertiary institutions and the blunder of sacking before reinstatement of the heads of Universities established by the former president, Goodluck Jonathan might be another reason why President may consider Mr. Adamu as a goner.

3. Minister of Youths and Sports : Solomon Dalung: The comrade and 'esprit de corp' Minister, who his known with his identity of wearing red beret 'cap' to functions and events which many believed might be linked to an occult group.

Without public opinion and outcry, everything portray to the inability of this Minister to make the nations proud in Sporting activities.

The pulling out of Nigerian sport ministry to provide a befitting burial arrangement for the late Super Eagles coach, Samson Siasia, the alleged report of Rio Olympics team to find their ways to Rio, inability of Team Nigeria to fly to various competition owing to visa issues, ticketing other embassies' stress accrued to the office of the Honourable Minister of Sports.

If Nigeria and Nigerians want to make a landmark strike in the sporting world, then Mr. Solomon Dalung might be a -no – go area for Mr. Buhari when considering dropping Ministers or changing his cabinet.

4. Minister of Industry, Trade And Investment: Okechukwu Enelemah: According to Minister of Finance, Mrs. Kemi Adeosun during her meeting with the Nigerian Senate before recess, she said the Nigeria economy is technically in 'Recession'. What did means is that President Muhamamdu Buhari needs to gear up in doings and ensure that he has a viable team members that can salvage the economic or better put, that can rescue the dying economy from total collapse.

Trade and Investment should be one of the rescue to the dilemma currently facing the present administration and the Minister and his team needs to ensure that their works and activities project the nation towards economic progression.

5. Minister of Niger Delta Affairs: Usani Uguru: With the recent crisis rocking the Delta region, coupled with the blasts of oil installations, Mr. Uguru hasn't been pro-active enough to step up his game with the Niger Delta Militants.

The president do not only need a versatile Minister in this ministry but someone that can talk down the Militants and a closer person to this region.

6. Minister of Science and Technology: Ogbonnaya Onu: The ministry of Science and technology is an evolving portfolio that needs the hands of young, talented and professional mind that can move with the global trend in technological advancement. Mr. Onu might not be living to the expectation at the moment and the President may replace him soon.

7. Minister of Women Affairs: Aisha Alhassan: Everything has pointed in one direction for the APC governorship aspirants in Taraba at the last general elections, Hajia Alhassan, common known as Mama Taraba. For the fact that Mama spent over 5 months of his ministerial position at battling with treatment at the foreign land. There is need for President Buhari to do more at appointing those capable and can really take the country to dream and aspiration of the President if only, there are not mere paper work.

In your own view, do you other Minister(s), you think President Buhari can do away with and get new and fresh mind on board? Lets have your views
