President Goodluck Jonathan sacks nine ministers
| September 11, 2013
President Goodluck Jonathan has sacked nine ministers in his cabinet. This is coming a few weeks after the Minister for Youth Development was sacked by the president and amidst the turmoil that is currently engulfing the president's party, the People's Democratic Party. There is speculation that the removal of the ministers has roots in the recent split in PDP - where seven state governors and former Vice-President, Atiku Abubakar formed a splinter-group in the PDP. The ministers that were sacked are: - Olugbenga Ashiru – Minister of Foreign Affairs - Prof Ruqqayat Ruf’ai – Minister of Education - Samsudeen Usman – Minister of National Planning - Ms Ama Pepple – Minister of Housing and Urban Development - Hadiza Mailafia – Minister of Environment - Prof Bassey Ewa- Minister of Science and Technology - Erelu Olusola Obada - Minister of State (Defence) - Minister of State (Agriculture) - Ms. Zainab Kuchi - Minister of State (Power) Click here for the list of ministers in Nigeria

If the splinter-group report was true, the sack was a misnormer, undemocratic and a gross abuse of presidential power. The Ministers were appointed to serve Nigeria and Nigerians, not Mr. Jonathan or Messrs PDP. The one of the greatest critics of Mr. Obama was Mr. Joe Biden. But Obama picked Biden because of America and Americans. When will Mr. Jonathan learn and stop being childish? God save Nigeria.

Does Nigeria really need all these ministries? The following should be dissolved and combined with comparable services;

1. Minister of National Planning. What are they really planning other than stealing?

2. Minister of Environment. Should be combined with another ministry.

3. Minister of Science and Technology. Sould belong to education; only serves as axies of stealing.

4.Minister of State (Defence). There should only be one defence department, weather, homeland or otherwise.

5. Minister of State (Power). This belongs to energy department.

We need great leaders not non productive and clueless leaders who contribute nothing to our national well being or just stealing.

God help us.
