…It Is An Attempt To Cover Up Failures – PDP
President Muhammadu Buhari has relieved two ministers of their appointments.
They are the Minister of Agriculture, Mohammed Sabo Nanono and his power counterpart, Engr. Saleh Mamman.
The special adviser to the president on media and publicity, Femi Adesina, announced this on Wednesday.
He said the Minister of Environment, Mohammed Abubakar has been redeployed to the Ministry of Agriculture while the Minister of State for Works, Engineer Abubakar Aliyu is to take over as minister of power.
He said the exercise would continue to fill vacancies as prescribed in the constitution.
Meanwhile, in reaction to the development, the opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) says President Muhammadu Buhari’s sack of the Minister of Agriculture and Rural Development, Mohammed Nanono and his Power counterpart, Saleh Mamman, is “a ludicrous and infective” attempt to cover up his failures in office.
In a statement in Abuja, signed by the its national publicity stunt, Kola Ologbondiyan, the party said it refused to be hoodwinked and was investigating the real reason behind their sack given what it dubbed Buhari’s public approach to fighting corruption by “easing out” the culprits.
According to the party, the manifest inefficiency of the Buhari administration is a product of the president’s myopic and divisive approach to governance as well as the impunity and corruption deeply embedded in his administration and party, the All Progressives Congress (APC).
“The PDP posits that even if the best hands are recruited, they will be contaminated by incompetence, impunity, disregard to rules, divisiveness and corruption that have become the hallmark of the APC and its administration,” the party stated.
It added Nigerians were not swayed by the sack of the ministers but are eagerly awaiting the exit of the Buhari Presidency and the APC come May 29, 2023 “as there is no hope in sight under their purview.”
