President Muhammadu Buhari, on Wednesday, disclosed reasons he never had any cause to reshuffle his cabinet since the beginning of his administration in 2015.
Speaking at the end of the valedictory session of the Federal Executive Council, FEC, meeting in Abuja, the President stated that he had been impressed by the individual contributions of each minister that saw to the realization of his administration’s goals.
According to him, each of his ministers had a unique skill and strength, “a reflection of Nigeria we aspire to achieve.”
He said: “Although we all had a common vision, we frequently had heated debates in this room on the best way to achieve our goals. These differing views are what made the decisions we took all the more rational.
“It is this quality that made me retain my cabinet for the full term. Each of you in this room has a unique skill and strength.
“We are a reflection of Nigeria we aspire to achieve. A diverse but tolerant nation where no one is silenced and where every opinion should be heard and considered.”
Mr. Buhari, therefore, commended the ministers for staying put despite “broken economy”, insecurity, massive corruption that was inherited by his administration.
“We inherited a broken economy which eventually went into recession in the second quarter of Fiscal Year 2016. The situation was further compounded by insecurity and massive corruption.
“Many would have given up. Indeed, many outside commentators said our situation was well nigh hopeless. However, we all came together and pushed forward to deliver our campaign promise to rescue our country from its parlous state.
“Although we all had a common vision, we frequently had heated debates in this room on the best way to achieve our goals. These differing views are what made the decisions we took all the more rational,” the President added.
