President Buhari has reviewed the ministers’ performance amid sack speculations.

EKOHOTBLOG reports that President Muhammadu Buhari has declared open a two-day mid term ministerial performance review retreat amid speculations of likely ‘sack’ of some more of his ministers for poor performance.

The retreat, which is being attended by Ministers, Permanent Secretaries and other top government officials, was declared open by the President in Abuja on Monday.

The review retreat is an annual event convened to assess the performances of top functionaries of the administration.

EKOHOTBLOG recalls that President Buhari, on September 1, 2021, at the weekly Federal Executive Council (FEC) meeting, sacked the Minister of Power, Engr. Saleh Mamman, and Minister of Agriculture and Rural Development, Alhaji Sabo Nanono, adding that the action would be a continuous one.

This is just as Presidency sources suggested that Buhari may be waiting for the outcome of the ongoing assessment process to determine his next step, which may involve easing more of his cabinet members, whose performance and conducts would not meet the administration’s standards, out of office.

However, President Buhari, while speaking at the opening ceremony of the performance review retreat at the State House Conference Hall, on Monday, said he would stay throughout the two-day event to listen to all cumulative assessments over the last two years and some months.

He said, “Two years and some months into the second term, the tradition of subjecting our projects and programs implementation to independent and critical self-review has taken firm roots through sector Reporting during Cabinet meetings and at Retreats.”

The President added that the idea of the assessment is to identify weak areas with a view to strengthening the ability of government to deliver the goods to the people.
