As reactions continue to trail the removal of the Minister of Agriculture and Rural Development, Mr. Sabo Nanono and his Power counterpart, Mr. Sale Mamman; a chieftain of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), Garus Gololo, has urged President Muhammadu Buhari to sack other cabinet Ministers.

President Muhammadu Buhari had on Wednesday, replaced the two ministers, through a press briefing by his Media Adviser, Femi Adesina. Though no reason was adduced.

At a press briefing in Abuja on Friday, Gololo, a former National Coordinator of Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association of Nigeria (MACBAN), said the removal of the Ministers under President Buhari was a welcome development and “long overdue”.

He, however, said the President should not have replaced them with other serving Ministers who were also supposed to be shown the exit doors, for “lack of performance”.

Gololo stressed that, either the Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF), Mr. Boss Mustapha, the National Security Adviser (NSA), Gen. Babagana Mungono (Rtd.) and all the Ministers had nothing to contribute to this government.

“I have said this before and I’m still emphasising it, all the ministers should be shown the way out. The SGF and the NSA too should be relieved of their duties.

“Let the President bring fresh hands with fresh ideas. That is why I was not happy that he replaced the sacked Ministers with other serving Ministers who originally should be out of office too.

“Their lack of performance has caused serious embarrassment to the government of President Buhari and our great party. Let them go. Outside the COVID-19 activities, I don’t think the SGF has done any notable thing in this government. Even the NSA, Mungono is just there doing nothing, in the face of insecurity here and there. Nigerians are tired of them.

“We have more capable hands in APC that can serve in any capacity. I mean those who can assist the President achieve the goal of fighting corruption, insecurity and revamping the economy. Those who genuinely supported him during elections and are ready to help him succeed. Not these crop of persons who even lost to opposition in their Council Ward, during elections”, Gololo added.

He said he had committed so much, just like other meaningful party faithful, to see that the APC stay relevant at all levels, saying, they would not fold hands and allow “unprofitable” persons rubbish the party.

The APC Chieftain said that, “Nigerians deserve the best and they believed the President could deliver, that is why they supported him. But with this crop of persons that have nothing to offer, I’m afraid we may disappoint the people, but God forbid”.

It would be recalled that, Gololo had in January 2021, called on President Buhari to sack his cabinet and inject fresh blood.

Gololo also advised that the SGF and the NSA should be removed, “to get the country out of corruption and regain international confidence.”
