Voters between age 18 and 79 believe President Buhari should have sacked non performing Ministers earlier. Voters are also more likely to think more dead wood minister ought to have been shown the way out of the cabinet to reinvigorate the overall progress of the administration.
According to Femi Adesina, the President said the changes were sequel to the “tradition of subjecting our projects and programs implementation to independent and critical self-review” through sector reporting during Cabinet meetings and at retreats.
He added that “these significant review steps have helped to identify and strengthen weak areas, close gaps, build cohesion and synergy in governance, manage the economy and improve the delivery of public good to Nigerians”.
