The ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, has on Sunday, November 20, called on President Muhammadu Buhari, to sack non-performing Ministers.
A senior APC Chieftain, Dr. Hakeem Baba-Ahmed, who made this call, urged the President, to quickly push through policies that would reduce current high level of poverty in the country.
He said, “If you go by the opinion of a lot of Nigerians, some of the Ministers are just filling up space.
“There is a case to be made for the argument, that the President should critically assess his Ministers, and remove those that he believes have not performed as well as they should.
“Replace them with people who will bring greater energy, greater vibe, and greater imagination in managing scarcity, and high expectations, in the context in which we live.”
Baba-Ahmed said the level of poverty in Nigeria, required urgent solution, adding that, government should continue to mobilize resources to tackle the problem.
He said, “What the government can do, is what I think it is doing, trying to come up with policies that in the short time can alleviate the crushing poverty.
“There are a lot of people who feed only once a day; there is a lot of hunger, frustration, and bitterness.
“If we have N500 billion in the Presidency now waiting to be disbursed, one would like to see an imaginative, and productive use of that money, so that it reaches people that need it to feed, pay school fees, pay medical bills, rent, and to go to places where they can earn a living.
“Government must mobilize resources directly, and make sure that it gets to the people.
“In the longer term, we need bold, and imaginative policies, that should re-position, and restructure the economy, to reduce dependence on oil.”
On the performance of President Buhari, Baba-Ahmed said, “one year is long enough to assess people, and too short to actually pass judgement”.
He noted, that a lot had been achieved by the President in some key areas, but that there was room for improvement.
He said, “I will say yes, he has done well in the area of fighting security, he has done well in terms of signaling his intention to fight corruption, and has many challenges in managing economic recession.


“He can do a lot better in terms of the quality of people he works with, the quality of his policies, and his ability to work with a political platform to engineer, and sustain public confidence.”
Baba-Ahmed, who was a retired Federal Permanent Secretary, called for caution on the desirability, or otherwise, of obtaining about $29.9 billion loan by the Federal Government for infrastructure development.
“I don’t think that there is anything wrong in getting the loan, however, I do think that we should draw appropriate lessons from the past.
“We borrowed money in the past, and we paid a huge amount of interest, and we haven’t seen the benefit directly from those loans that we repaid.
“I think that this particular loan has to be scrutinised, has to be rigorously interrogated by the National Assembly, and if they are convinced, then we should go ahead and get it.
“What is important, is that the President needs to improve the manner he engages Nigerians, in explaining to them why he needs to borrow $29.9 billion dollars, what are the benefits, what are the possible draw backs.
“Because this money, as I said before, is been borrowed for our children, not for ourselves, it is important that we don’t leave them a legacy of huge debt.”
He further advised that more efforts be put to enhance the management of the nation’s economy.
“There is room for improvement, in terms of thinking through key policies, monetary, economic policies, that are relevant to the peculiar nature of recession in Nigeria.”
