As President Muhammadu Buhari winds up his four-year administration in preparation for a new term, Nigerians on Wednesday, May 15, picked the cabinet members they think should be retained.
A 48-hour general poll conducted by Legit.ng showed that Nigerians want three ministers to be retained.
The three ministers, according to a study of the comments by Nigerians, are: Babatunde Fashola, minister of works, power and housing; Rotimi Amaechi, who is Fashola’s counterpart in the transport ministry and Audu Ogbeh, in charge of agriculture.
Some explained that Fashola was burdened by serious challenges stemming from the tasks before him, but he excelled.
Engr Oluwagbemiga Anifowose, in his response, said: “In my own opinion, Fasola, Ameachi and Audu Ogbe have done excellently well with great impacts. Modern railway lines, 365 roads in four years, power improved from 2500 to 8500MW within four years. Agricultural export improved by over 1000%.”
Clinton Bioluwatife Akinyemi, on his part, simply listed Amaechi, Ogbeh and Fashola as the cabinet members to be retained while Usman Garba said: “Please let PMB retain Ameachi Fashola and Audu Ogbe for the goodness of our nation.”
Wisdom Honesty said he was sure that Fashola and Ogbeh did well. He added: "The rest I don't understand their duties.”
In his response, Abimbola Mafe said Rotimi Amaechi, Babatunde Fashola and Audu Ogbeh excelled just as he described the other cabinet members as bench-warmers.
In his opinion, Prince Muhib Idris said those that should be retained are: “H. E. Hon Rotimi Amechi, the railway master, Eng Audu Ogbeh, the agricultural minister, and the Honourable minister for foreign affairs.”
Some of the respondents, however, complained about the worsening state of power in the country. Others urged the government to improve on roads and other infrastructures.
Legit.ng earlier reported that the move to retain Alhaji Lai Mohammed, the minister of information, started among All Progressives Congress (APC) groups in the north central.
The APC's consultative forum in Irepodun local government area of Kwara on Tuesday, May 14, urged the federal government to retain him.
