Buhari To Replace 10 Incompetent Ministers Early Next Year

By Ikenga Chronicles December 19, 2016

There is palpable tension over the move by the President Muhammadu Buhari to drop no fewer than 10 Ministers who have become cogs in the wheel of progress for the actualisation of the change agenda.

The presidency has over the weekend reached out to the Senate informing it of its intention to carry out a cabinet shakeup that may affect no fewer than 10 ministers.

The change was based on the criticism that the Buhari administration has put round pegs in square holes.

An impeccable source revealed that the presidency had decided to give the Senate a hint on the replacement to avoid confusion during the screening exercise.

A source close to the Presidency, said the Presidency was disturbed by the series of conflicts between it and the Senate in recent times, resulting in the rejection of various presidential requests.

Reports indicate that some of the 10 ministers to be affected by the exercise would be dropped while others would swap portfolios.

“There is an understanding that in the new year, one of the key assignments the Senate will undertake, aside from the consideration of the 2017 budget, is the screening of new ministerial nominees who will be replacing some of the ministers that will soon be asked to leave the cabinet” a source in the Presidency  said.

The source revealed  that despite the Presidency’s search, the forthcoming screening of ministerial nominees would not be a walkover for anyone.

“The Senate will set a high standard. Security reports will be taken seriously. There will be thorough screening. It will not be a tea party” he added.
