Minister Of Education, 8 Others Sacked By Jonathan


Members of the Federal Executive Council were on Wednesday shocked when President Goodluck Jonathan sacked nine members of the council.

The sacked ministers did not have any inkling of their impending sack as some of them attended the weekly federal executive council meeting Wednesday, but sources said their sack may not be unconnected with the failings of their ministries, and calls from different quarters for their sack.

Following their sack, President Jonathan reportedly thanked the sacked ministers for their services to the nation and wished them well in their future endeavours.

The sacked ministers include the Minister of Foreign Affairs, Olugbenga Ashiru, Minister of National Planning, Dr. Shamshudeen Usman- and Professor Ruquyatu Rufai, Minister of Education.

others are Hajia Hadiza Mailafia (Environment), Ms. Ama Peppel (Housing), Minister of state for power Zainab Kuchi; Minister of state for defence Erelu Olusula Obada, Minister of state for Agriculture Buka Tijani as well as Minister of science and tech- Professor Ita Bassey Ewah.
